According to a tweet posted a few hours ago, the plot synopsis of the upcoming movie Sonic the Hedgehog 2 could very well have been leaked. Twitter user Rocks the Squirrel stumbled across the movie’s copyright details on the United States Copyright Office online catalog, which lists Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as currently under ‘Preregistration.’
According to this listing, production on the movie recently started, and the film is being directed by Jeff Fowler, starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz, all of whom also starred in last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Fowler himself confirmed that he has been involved in the movie, and that production had kicked off on March 16.
In February this year, Paramount Pictures released a 10-second-long title announcement trailer – you can check it out below, but it doesn’t really tell us a whole lot. Since then, there’s only a few spurts of official news – and a ton of speculation – around what we can expect from the sequel. So far, thanks to some photos from the film’s set, we can say with certainty that Tails and Knuckles will be involved, and that Tika Sumpter (who played Maddie Wachowski in the last movie) has also made a return.
Now, we have some more insight into the actual plot of the flick, provided this turns out to actually be legit. Here’s the synopsis as listed on the online copyright catalog, which alludes to the famed Master Emerald from the Sonic series:
After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. But, no sooner are they gone, when Dr Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations.
Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
Hopefully, we’ll receive some proper confirmation of these details from the film’s publisher in the near future. If all goes according to schedule, the movie will be released on April 8, 2022.
