In context: When the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film was first introduced, it did not precisely take the world by storm — not less than, not in a optimistic sense. The film’s tackle the character was horrifying, to say the least: Sonic regarded extra like a humanoid rat (with far too many human tooth) than everybody’s favourite blue hedgehog.
Fortunately, after seeing all the widespread criticism, the film’s creators selected to return to the drafting board on Sonic’s design and rework it from the floor up. The remainder of the film remained largely the identical, however Sonic bought a full overhaul, which introduced him rather more in line (visuals) together with his online game counterpart.
After deciding on his closing look (which was obtained significantly better), the film launched, and by all accounts, it was fairly respectable, particularly for a video game-based film. Indeed, plainly Sonic the Hedgehog carried out so properly that its producers are already planning a sequel.
According to a report from Variety, the identical writing staff and director will produce the sequel, however different specifics are nonetheless up in the air for the time being. We’re undecided the place the film will likely be set or what the story premise will likely be, however we do know that Ben Schwartz will likely be reprising his position as the well-known blue hedgehog.
Regardless, we definitely sit up for seeing what the newest Sonic film will seem like when its first trailers drop, however we do not count on that to occur for a whereas. With the world solely simply not beginning to get well from the harm that the Covid-19 pandemic has triggered, it would in all probability nonetheless be not less than a few extra months earlier than main film studios are capable of return to normalcy.
