About Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie:

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is an action-adventure comedy film directed by Jeff Fowler and written by Pat Casey, Josh Miller, and John Whittington. It stars Ben Schwartz reprising his role as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog, alongside James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Shemar Moore.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is based on the video game series published by Sega, and the sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog (2020). The film follows Sonic and Tails, who team up to find Master Emerald before Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles the Echidna.

It was theatrically released in several markets on March 30, 2022, and in the United States on April 8, by Paramount Pictures and Sega Sammy Group. The film was praised for its action sequences, visuals, humor, animated characters, and the cast’s performances, but its screenplay, runtime, and pacing drew criticism.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is scheduled for 2024, while Knuckles, a spin-off series starring Elba, is scheduled to premiere on Paramount+ in early 2024.
