Sonic the Hedgehog

A few months ago, Paramount Pictures announced it was developing a sequel to the live-action family comedy, Sonic the Hedgehog. Once again, Jeff Fowler will be directing it, and Pat Casey and Josh Miller will be writing the script.

Although the movie is still believed to be in the early development phases - according to Variety, Paramount has now gone ahead and locked in an official release date. Despite the coronavirus pandemic currently sweeping the globe, the film studio is confident it can get Sonic's movie sequel out the door by 8th April 2022.

As previously mentioned, a sequel is no surprise after the film's ending. It also managed to bank close to $210 million in just 10 days - outpacing Detective Pikachu in box office earnings. Are you ready for Sonic's second big screen outing? Tell us below.
