Everyone’s favorite blue blur hedgehog is speeding back to action as Paramount Pictures announced that a ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ sequel has officially been added to their slate.
According to Variety, Jeff Fowler is returning to direct with Pat Casey and Josh Miller writing the script with Hajime Satomi, Haruki Satomi, and Tim Miller signing on as producers. No decisions have been made regarding the cast, but it is possible we will see Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Tika Sumpter will reprise their roles from the first film as Sonic, Dr. Robotnik, Sheriff Tom, and Maddie, respectively.
Sonic The Hedgehog was an adaptation of the popular SEGA video game series of the same name which shows the anthropomorphic hedgehog speedster and his friends battling Dr. Robotnik, who uses robots in his plan for world domination.
The first film’s original trailer sparked controversy as Sonic’s look was deemed “uncanny” and far-removed from his sleek design. Fortunately, Paramount Pictures and director Jeff Fowler heard the angry cries of the fans and redesigned Sonic, making him appear more like the game. As a result, the movie scored big at the box office and went on to become the number one movie adaption of a popular video game.
For one thing, I am looking forward to this sequel. The original really captured the spirit of the games, so I hope to see more characters from the series involved in the film franchise.
