With just under a month to go before Sonic the 2 hedgehog is directed to theaters, we are starting to see more and more promotions for the film, including posters, clips and more. Another one of the first was shared this week with the revelation of an elegant poster for Sonic the hedgehog 2 that shows the two main teams of characters: Sonic The Hedgehog himself and his companions, Tails, facing Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles. The premiere of the film is scheduled for April 8, so it will not be long before people can see the return, and the debut, in the case of Knuckles, of these characters.
The poster in question can be seen below, courtesy of Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account that has been sharing promotions and advances for the new film during the last months in preparation for its launch. On the left, we have Knuckles of Idris Elba and Dr. Robotnik by Jim Carrey together. Colleen O’Shaughnessey Tails is in front of Knuckles with Sonic from Ben Schwartz facing Dr. Robotnik.
If you had not added two and two now, either because of the prior knowledge of Sonic or by the clips we have seen so far, Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles are on the same team in the movie, or at least that’s what we think. Know so far. It is possible that we see Sonic and Knuckles becoming friends at the end or at least reaching some kind of agreement so that they are neutral among themselves, but, of course, we will not know how that develops until the film is really in theaters.
However, whatever happens in this movie, it is probably a pretty sure bet that we will not see the latest Knuckles and the others in this movie. That would have been a safe assumption anyway, but it is even safer now that we know that Paramount is already working on a third Sonic The Hedgehog movie. Leaving aside the movies, Knuckles will definitely star in its new television series that has also been confirmed.
The synopsis of the next movie will help you to update on what is happening in case the context and posters were not enough:
“After settling on Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave it at home while going on vacation,” says a movie synopsis. “But, they barely have left, when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search of an emerald that has the power to build and destroy civilizations. Sonic joins that of his own companion of him, Tails., and together they embark on a trip to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands ».
Sonic the hedgehog 2 reaches the cinemas on April 8.
