DUBAI: Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie, the upcoming sequel of SEGA blue mascot that’s set to be released in US cinemas on April 8, 2022.
The trailer highlights the appearance of both Tails, played by Colleen O’Shaughnessey and Knuckles, played by Idris Elba.
Paramount Pictures officially announced the sequel to Sega’s famous blue mascot movie last February, bringing back Fowler as director of the movie as well Pat Casey and Josh Miller as returning scriptwriters. Neal H. Moritz, Toby Ascher, and Toru Nakahara are credited as producers on the new film, while Hajime Satomi, Haruki Satomi, and Tim Miller are credited as executive producers.
The studio decided to produce a sequel after last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog grossed over $319 million dollars worldwide to become one of the biggest movie releases in 2020.
The first movie starred Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, James Marsdenas Thomas Michael “Tom” Wachowski and Tika Sumpter as Maddie Wachowski while Ben Schwartz voiced Sonic the Hedgehog.
