Yep, the Sonic movie sequel has been dated. After the original film was lambasted for its version of the character, it totally revamped the design, and ended up becoming a big success. It's one of the most successful game-to-movie adaptations, earning over $100 million in its opening weekend. A follow-up was inevitable, and it now has a date.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2, or whatever the title may be, will hit movie theatres on 8th April, 2022. We've known a sequel is coming since May of this year, when Variety reported it was in the early stages of development. With a release date locked and loaded, it seems work is moving forward on Sonic's next big screen adventure.
