Just in time for the first anniversary of the incredibly successful Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Paramount Pictures has announced the official title for its upcoming sequel. And, in the words of the studio, it's "extremely obvious." THe upcoming sequel will be titled "Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
The announcement video, only about ten seconds long, begins with the same animation for the logo reveal from the movie with a short remix of "Emerald Hill" from the 1992 SEGA Genesis title Sonic the Hedgehog 2 playing in the background before a yellow number 2 slides in to the right of the logo. The bottom half of the number has two tails, a reference to Tails. Paramount Pictures then announced that the movie will be releasing in theaters on April 8, 2022. With the ongoing pandemic, potential delays or changes in that release should be expected. Even so, the title and release date, along with other news about confirmed actors returning like Tika Sumpter seem to suggest that the movie is coming along smoothly.
