The Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which is Mostly Fine, did well enough that a sequel is already in development.

Paramount and Sega confirmed the news to Variety this afternoon, and while it’s too early for casting announcements (though you’d expect at least Jim Carrey, James Marsden and Sonic’s voice Ben Schwartz to be back), the same core team behind the first film”director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller”are returning.

The first Sonic movie, which didn’t have the easiest time late in production, went on to have the top-grossing opening weekend ever for a video game movie, which I know is a low bar to clear, but it still cleared it.

The first film ended with Eggman/Robotnik, having shed his more presentable black-suited appearance for full-blown video game giant moustache cosplay ensemble, stranded on a mushroom kingdom planet, while a post-credits scene revealed that Sonic’s sidekick Tails had arrived.

So maybe this sequel will be a lot more like the games than the very-fast-ET premise of the last movie.


  • The mushroom planet is actually a Mario crossover and the next movie will be an unholy Sonic and Mario union.

    The trillion dollar question is: is Dr Robotnik actually Super Mario?

    • i get you jest, but sonic and mario are both nintendo these days right? you never know…

  • Maybe they should call the sequel — and bear with me here — “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”

  • No Gung-ho Dr Robotnik is not Super Mario and the mushroom planet is not a crossover with Mario but ever since production for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie was late hopefully production and development for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog sequel won’t become late again but since Paramount Pictures and SEGA confirmed that they are making a Sonic The Hedgehog sequel it’s good to hear that director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller are returning along with Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik James Marsden as Tom Wachowski and Ben Schwartz coming back to voice as Sonic The Hedgehog.
    Also at least we’ll get to see Sonic’s friend Tails in the Sonic The Hedgehog sequel and who knows maybe we might get to see Knuckles as well as Amy Rose Silver Vector Big the Cat and even Shadow the Hedgehog.
    Thank you Paramount Pictures and SEGA for making that announcement and I’m looking forward to seeing the Sonic The Hedgehog sequel when production and development for the upcoming movie is complete keep up the good work.
