Unlike Sonic, he doesn’t chuckle, but he does have something else that is more in common with him. Knuckles, Sonic, and Tails have been spotted on the Sonic Movie 2 set!
They have been filming at Fort Langley for a little while now, and there have already been some interesting things, including a flying Jim Carrey and G.U.N. military vehicles. But this is our first look at Knuckles as he may be designed for the movie.
The picture came from the Patreon of Pursuit23, someone that has been apparently inspired to be like paparazzi. Although you have to pay to see their Patreon posts, they had been at the movie set earlier today and had managed to take multiple images, including the one that had Knuckles.
Now, I said that this may be how they’re designed for the movie, because it’s very possible that Knuckles could appear differently in the movie. It’s not final, as they’re filming right now. Knuckles is missing the crescent on his chest, and fans are speculating that all 3 characters are actually at their Sonic Boom heights. And, most of all, they seem to be just stand-in props for the actors to react to.
So, when will we know for sure? It depends on if Knuckles’ design is meant to be something they only want people to find out by seeing the movie. If not, which is the more likely outcome, it’ll be in a trailer that’ll be posted closer to the movie’s release.
UPDATE: Video footage of the character props has now been leaked:
