The synopsis for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog sequel has been leaked and it teases the appearance of Knuckles and Tails.
Sonic The Hedgehog is making a return to the big screen! Yayyy! This is pretty old news. We knew for some time that Paramount Pictures and Sega were working on the sequel. What we didn't know is the nature of the return.
Now, however, we may have a snippet of information that may help us decipher how our furry blue friend will roll back in to theaters. Twitter user Ninja_Risu reportedly uncovered a copyright filing from Paramount Pictures and Sega, which reveals the synopsis of Sonic The Hedgehog 2: The Movie.
The document reads:
After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation.
But, no sooner are they gone, when Dr. Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
This synopsis, however, has not been officially released, and it is possible that it may change as time goes on.
We are excited to see that there is a huge possibility of the appearance of the classic character Knuckles. It's also interesting to note that Tails will be more prevalent in the sequel after making a very short appearance in the first movie.
Dr. Robotnik is making a return, and we can expect him to be even bigger and badder, especially now that he has Knuckles on his side.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2: The Movie is set to be released on April 8, 2022. The announcement of the official title and the release date was made back in February 2021 in a Twitter post by the official account of the movie.
The tweet read:
Groundbreaking. Thought provoking. Extremely obvious. Presenting the official title of the #SonicMovie sequel: Sonic the Hedgehog 2! Catch #SonicMovie2 in theatres in 2022.
