SEGA has announced that a third Sonic the Hedgehog film has gone into development, alongside a Knuckles-centric series coming to Paramount+.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is due to hit cinemas in April, and sees both Tails and Knuckles joining in on the action. Clearly both SEGA and Paramount are confident in the film series, with the first film becoming the biggest ever opening for a video game adaptation after overtaking Detective Pikachu. A third film is now in the works, alongside a Paramount+ TV series starring Knuckles the Echidna, who will once again be voiced by Idris Elba.

“We are delighted to announce that the third Sonic theatrical film and the first live action Sonic series for Paramount+ are being actively developed,” said SEGA CEO Haruki Satomi. “We’ve got a remarkable partnership with Paramount, and we are excited to continue expanding the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise with them. 2022 is shaping up to be a significant year for the franchise with the second film being released this April, as well as Sonic Frontiers, the highly anticipated video game title, coming this holiday.”

“Sonic has been beloved by fans across the world for over 30 years and we look forward to continuing to bring memorable moments and experiences to them for many years to come.”

The big news here, of course, is that somehow SEGA has announced Sonic 3 and Knuckles with a straight face, and no one is calling them out on it. Maybe if you watch both the film and TV series together, you'll get an entirely new experience? Anyway, in the meantime, you can check out the trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 down below, before it hits cinemas on 8th April 2022.
