Though the first trailer was widely reviled, Paramount was able to pick things up and Sonic the Hedgehog became a hit when it was released earlier this year. While the status of a sequel had been up in the air for the past few months, we have news that a sequel has officially been greenlit.\r\n\r\nAs per Variety, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is once again bringing Jeff Fowler back to the director\u2019s chair with Pay Casey and Josh Miller. We don\u2019t have a main story for the follow-up yet, but I have a feeling that Fowler and his team already have something in mind, what with all the set-ups that they laid toward the end.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=szby7ZHLnkA\r\n\r\nWe know that Tails is now looking for Sonic in Green Hills, and it\u2019s possible that we could meet some of Sonic\u2019s other friends from the video games. What\u2019s more, Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) now has a video-game accurate look, and it\u2019s very possible that he\u2019ll find a way out of his mushroom world in time to seek revenge on Sonic.\r\n\r\nWhile the relationship with Sonic and \u2018Donut Lord\u2019 (James Marsden) is supposedly at the center of the first movie, I think that the sequel could actually do away with human characters and just focus on Sonic\u2019s colorful friends. No offense, but the human characters in these films always tend to be boring, and I\u2019m sure kids will have plenty to identify with characters like Knuckles, Tails, and Amy Rose.\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t know when a sequel is set to come out, but hopefully we get an update before the year ends.
