Sonic the Hedgehog is getting a sequel

Looks like it's time for 2020's Sonic the Hedgehog to move up over and be gone because there's a sequel on the way!

It was recently confirmed by Paramount Pictures and Sega Sammy that development on a sequel to the live-action family comedy has commenced. Director Jeff Fowler and scripwriters Pat Casey and Josh Miller will reunite to work on Sonic's sophomore outing.

As the film is still in its development stage, casting or a production start date has yet to be made.

The first film Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the popular video game franchise from Sega, released in February earlier this year, tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) as he plots world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter.

Upon its release, the film scored the #1 opening weekend of all-time for a movie based on a video game, despite the COVID-19 crisis. It was later released on demand ahead of schedule when cinemas began to close due to the pandemic.
