What just happened? The 8th Annual Game Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, where It Takes Two won the coveted Game of the Year award. While the show is largely about nominees and winners, many are tapping into the trailers as well. One of the highlights of this year’s show was the premiere of the official Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie trailer.
Paramount Pictures got off to a rough start with the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Namely, fans weren’t happy with the studio’s original take on Sonic. The outcry was so bad that the director of the film announced a three-month deadline for the character to be okay. The setback paid off, as the new Sonic look was much nicer on the eyes. The movie itself wasn’t that bad either, with Jim Carry arguably stealing the show as Doctor Robotnik.
Along with the sequel, Paramount brings in more characters from the Sonic universe, including sidekick Tails and Knuckles the Echidna, who appears to be portrayed as Sonic’s nemesis in the sequel.
The film’s description indicates that Dr. Robotnik is back with his new partner, Knuckles, in search of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic, meanwhile, teams up with Tails in an effort to find the gem before it falls into the wrong hands.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is slated to hit theaters on April 8, 2022.
