We may have to wait until April 2022 to be able to watch Sonic the Hedgehog 2, but this video game-based character still has a special surprise for fans in the holiday season later this year. A video stream has been uploaded to Paramount Pictures’ YouTube to help fill the holidays, and it creates a relaxed holiday atmosphere and was developed to serve as a backdrop as you focus on preparing your own living room for the Christmas and New Year’s holiday celebrations.
At the beginning of the video, a rapid blue light can be seen illuminating the living room fireplace, allowing the soothing sound of wood cracking and burning to fill the void. The relaxed atmosphere is disturbed from time to time, as Sonic hangs up new decorations faster than the human eye can see. As time went on, the living room filled with Christmas trees, gift wrappers, socks, and even Sonic’s gift list. The list of course includes hot sausages and big hats.
In addition to Ben Schwartz returning as Sonic and Jim Carrey as Robotnik, the film will also feature James Marsden and Tika Sumpter as Tom and Maddie Wachowskis, and Lee Majdoub returning as Agent Stone. Other cast members in the film are Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Shemar Moore. Some time ago it was announced that Idris Elba will voice Knuckles the Echidna, confirming the involvement of one of the video game’s favorite characters in the film’s sequel.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which will be distributed by Paramount Pictures directed by Jeff Fowler, who also directed the first Sonic film. Pat Casey, Josh Miller, and John Whittington wrote the script for this sequel.
Plot synopsis for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 reads:
“After settling in Green Hills, Sonic was ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agreed to leave him at home while they went on vacation. However, not long after they left, Dr. Robotnik is back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search of the emerald that has the power to build and destroy civilization. Sonic then teams up with his best friend, Tails, and together they embark on an adventure and journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.”
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 began development shortly after the first film was released in 2020. And although production has been complicated by the COVID pandemic situation, this sequel comes just two years after the first film with the core cast from the first film returning. And now Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be released in theaters on April 8, 2022.
