Sonic the Hedgehog 2: When does it premiere in theaters?… – The US Sun


Whether it's from his titular videogame franchise or other multimedia appearances, Sonic the Hedgehog is heavily recognized by the public.
The first live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film was released in February of 2020 and left fans wondering about the sequel.
Following Sonic's live-action debut, moviegoers were curious to know if the success of the first movie would result in a follow-up film production.
The videogame character's first cinematic outing grossed over $319million against an estimated $80million budget.
In May of 2020, Paramount Pictures broke the news of a second motion picture in the works.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is slated for a release date on April 8, 2022.
The plot summary states: "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," the synopsis concludes.
The Sega-based character's second movie features more players audiences might recognize from the eponymous figure's gaming series.
Along with some notable additions to the movie, much of the cast from the 2020 film are returning.
Along with Sonic and Dr. Robotnik, fans will have the chance to see Tails and Knuckles make their live-action debuts as well.
Other cast members include:
The casting also sees Ben Schwartz reprising his voice acting role as the famed blue hedgehog, Colleen O'Shaughnessey voicing Tails, and Idris Elba voicing Knuckles the Echidna.
Movie enthusiasts and gaming fans took to social media sites such as Twitter to express their anticipation regarding Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
One user tweeted: "sonic 2 is going to be the best movie just like ever."
Another user tweeted: "A sonic 2 ad trailer popped up randomly, and it looks so promising."
"Sonic 2 will be better than The Batman and Elden Ring," expressed another user as the tweets poured in.
A different fan stated: "I am unironically excited for Sonic 2, and looking back to when we were all memeing at the foretold disaster that the first movie was supposed to be, it's pretty incredible."
Prior to Sonic the Hedgehog's February 2020 release, Jim Carrey did not star in a major Hollywood production for close to six years.
Before his starring role as Dr. Robotnik, Carrey's last big-screen appearance was Dumb & Dumber To, the franchise's third movie.
The actor rose to prominence during the 1990s for his portrayals on television, as well as motion pictures.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the star accumulated a wealth of $180million.
