Sonic 2 is coming out this April and the little green hedgehog is getting up to speed on the sequel. Paramount announced on Tuesday that Sonic 3 is in development, along with a series of Paramount Plus movies centered around Knuckles that will star Idris Elba.
Sonic 2 was set to expand the world of the film franchise, bringing in Tails (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and Finger joint from video games. Of course, Sonic (Ben Schwartz) himself will return, too, along with Jim Carrey’s evil Dr. Robotnik and James Marsden’s Tom. With the sequel still a few months away, it’s hard to say what the third installment of Sonic’s live-action adventure might include.
Also on the way in the Sonic universe is a new series about Knuckles the Echidna, which will stream on Paramount Plus. Again, Paramount doesn’t go into any details about the series, but we do know that Idris Elba, who voices Knuckles in Sonic 2, will return for the series. The series is slated to premiere in 2023.
