Paramount Pictures announced that the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie will open in the United States on April 8, 2022.
The announcement of a sequel was made back on May 28. Jeff Fowler is slated to return to direct the sequel along with Pat Casey and Josh Miller as scriptwriters.
The original movie earned a little over $70 million during its opening weekend of February 14-17. Cumulatively, the film earned around $306 million worldwide. The film was considered a major success after it was initially delayed due to severe fan backlash over the design of Sonic.
