According to one of its producers, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be part of a “cinematic universe”.
In the film’s star press releases, producer Toby Ascher stressed that the film was just the beginning.
“We’re creating a Sonic Cinematic Universe, so from the first movie, we know we’ve added new characters, like Tails and KnucklesM to the movies, but already loved by judges around the world.”
Another producer, Neal H. Moritz, explained, “[Sonic 1] was a great experience for us as creators and film lovers. Now we have many perks to expand this world, adding new characters, bigger worlds, amazing action and adventure journey. There’s a lot of places we can go with Sonic.”
The tercera film, of course, is already in production. We still don’t know, however, what new characters will be introduced.
A Paramount+ TV series is also planned with Idris Elba as Knuckles.
