Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is an upcoming American action-adventure comedy family fantasy film. It is based on the videogame franchise of the same name published by Sega.
The film is the sequel to the 2020 film Sonic the Hedgehog and the second installment in a planned Sonic the Hedgehog film series.
After critical and commercial success of Sonic the Hedgehog, Paramount confirmed that development has started on a sequel in May 2020, with director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller all back for the sequel.
But, what can we expect from this film? Here’s everything we know about it so far.

What Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Story Could Be
Sonic the Hedgehog ends with Sonic having defeated Dr. Robotnik, with Eggman left trapped inside the Mushroom Hill Zone.
This will likely form the setting – or at least part of it – for Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s story, which will presumably feature the return of Dr. Robotnik.
In this movie, he’s recruited by the U.S. Army, but the sequel can have him and Sonic even more directly oppose one another.
Mushroom Hill Zone levels have seen Eggman attempt to destroy it, so that could be a factor, or Sonic the Hedgehog 2 could instead center around his escape and quest for revenge on Sonic.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Release Date
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 8, 2022 by Paramount Pictures. The sequel will have a much speedier path to the big screen than Sonic the Hedgehog did.
The first movie was pushed back because of the distribution changing hands, and then again for the VFX to be overhauled. With the design now settled, it’ll be much quicker for a sequel to happen.
That’s at least assuming production doesn’t encounter any major delays, and movie theaters are back to normal by spring 2022.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer
The trailer is not available yet. Sorry for this. With a 2022 release date we’re hoping for trailer till a late 2021. Still, when it does arrive, we’re sure the makers will be hoping for a better reaction to its first trailer…
So, we’ll update this as soon as there’s any official confirmation about the trailer.
But on February 10, 2021 Paramount Pictures has released a “Title Announcement video” for the sequel. You can check it here:
In addition, ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ isn’t something anybody expected to happen after the backlash to the terrifying first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog.
And yet, the movie defied all expectations to be actually quite good and did even better than that at the box office with more than $300 million worldwide, making it the fourth biggest movie of 2020 to date.
The sequel is coming out on April 8, 2022 in the United States.
