In the wake of recent news that Tails voice actress Colleen O’Shaughnessy will be voicing Miles Prower again in an upcoming Sonic movie, a poster for the sequel was shown that aptly references another Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – some might say that real Sonic 2.
Released on TwitterA new poster (below) shows Sonic, Tails and Robotnik – played by returning Jim Carrey – flying high above the ground in Sonic’s biplane, the Tornado first seen in the original Mega Drive / Genesis sequel. Can you see several Eggman drones chasing the sunrise in the east … or perhaps the shot is aimed south and the sun sets in the west? It’s beautiful anyway.
Game Awards leader Jeff Keighley also tweeted to not only confirm rumors that Sonic’s next game will be unveiled, but that Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz, who play Robotnik and Sonic, respectively, will be attending Thursday’s awards ceremony to present ‘World Premiere Trailer.
The film is scheduled to release in April 2022 – the 8th, as you can tell if you look at the poster. After the first film received a very tumultuous pre-release welcome that prompted producers to completely redesign the protagonist, it looks like the sequel is more in line with fans’ expectations from the outset. It certainly doesn’t hurt to refer to one of the greatest hedgehog games, that’s for sure! Let’s hope this sequel turns out to be just as surprisingly interesting as the first movie.
Let us know below if you are thrilled with this forthcoming sequel.
