A sequel to the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is in development, as first reported by Variety. It’s unclear when the movie may be launched, however Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler and screenwriters Pat Casey and Josh Miller are all returning for the sequel.
Fowler confirmed that he’ll be again to direct on Twitter.
Sonic the Hedgehog was successful for Paramount, incomes $70 million in its first 4 days in theaters this February, according to Variety. However, the movie initially had some controversy due to the design of its titular character.
The first design for Sonic’s movie illustration was strangely (horrifyingly) humanlike. The backlash to the look was sturdy sufficient that Paramount delayed the first movie from November to February to repair Sonic’s look. Sonic’s remaining design appeared much better, harkening again his iconic look from the Sonic video video games.
“The new Sonic is so lovable that it virtually makes up for a reasonably generic plot and a human forged that play the roles of ‘heroic’ and ‘bad’ so straight, they could possibly be extras in The Good Place,” mentioned former Verge staffer Dami Lee in her review of the film.
It’s unclear if Ben Schwartz can be again as the voice of Sonic or if Jim Carrey will return as Dr. Robotnik for the sequel, however it looks as if a protected wager that they’ll return.
