The first visual tease for the upcoming Sonic movie sequel has dropped, revealing the official name for the new film: Sonic the Hedgehog 2. How did they come up with that?

Yes, the ten-second clip above showcases the new film's name and logo, while confirming that the planned 8th April 2022 release date is still very much the target. Speaking about the film's name, the video's description reads, "Groundbreaking. Thought-provoking. Extremely obvious." They got that right.

Towards the end of last year, British Columbia Film Commission documents suggested that production on the new movie would begin in March 2021, which is obviously just around the corner. It was also reported that the film has a budget of more than $20 million.
