The movie seems to be a continuation of the first “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie, released in 2020, only with new characters. People are very excited to see characters such as Tails and Knuckles in this new movie, both staples in the Sonic franchise.
The 2020 film did very well in box office sales and grossed around 300 million dollars, which did not disappoint with a budget of around $90 million. The visuals with “Sonic the Hedgehog: 2” look very promising, and the style of the characters translates well into the film. The movie was confirmed for development as early as May 2020, which was before the first film “Sonic the Hedgehog” was even released!

Brian Shea at Gameinformer.com has said “Sonic the Hedgehog 2 retains the heart that makes the first film so well-liked. Sonic remains energetic and endearing.”
Media outlets around the world have very positive things to say about the film, which really puts it in the spotlight and helps it stand out from other films set to release around the same time. It is good to see fan-favorite characters appear on the big screen and be animated so well. The film also brings back the unforgettable actor Jim Carrey, who played Doctor Eggman in “Sonic the Hedgehog” and is set to return to the role with “Sonic the Hedgehog: 2”. Justin Lowe at hollywoodreporter.com mentioned “Director Jeff Fowler, returning for the sequel, mines his enthusiasm for the Sonic games, but mostly resists any misguided inclination to mimic the franchise’s famously manic gameplay — with the exception of a few satisfying matchups between Sonic and Knuckles or Dr. Robotnik and his menacing drone army.”
The movie came out around at the perfect time. Right once spring break was in session for San Dieguito Academy, the movie hit theaters. It’s really exciting seeing the creative path that the producers and directors took to put together another timeless classic in the cinema world. The time that they took to create this film is very remarkable with only creating it in about two years.
