Sonic the Hedgehog 2 director Jeff Fowler has shared a set photo announcing that filming has wrapped on the sequel.

The director shared a tweet captioned: “That’s a wrap in Vancouver! Thank you to all the amazing cast/crew in this much incredible talent helping make #SonicMovie2 truly special (and spoiler alert... EPIC!)” Here’s hoping the film lives up to Fowler’s praises when it releases April 2022

Fowler also shared a photo of himself on what appears to be the Sonic The Hedgehog 2 set surrounded by huge mushrooms and holding a slate from the film. Could we be revisiting the mushroom world where we last saw Dr. Robotnik at the end of the first film?

There’s still a lot of speculation surrounding who will be appearing in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 both on screen and in the recording booth. After making a brief cameo during the first movie’s post-credits, Tails may be playing a bigger role in the sequel, especially after a video from the set saw one actor being lifted into the air – almost as if they were being picked up by a certain flying fox... 

Sega icon Knuckles the echidna has also been confirmed to be in the film after set photos of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles appeared online. Sonic fans replied to Fowler’s tweet asking for the filmmaker to reveal who will be voicing Knuckles in the sequel, with references to Dwayne Johnson and Jason Momoa floating around in the discussion too. However, it still hasn’t been confirmed who will be taking on the role just yet.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
