‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ is one of the most anticipated upcoming movie sequels. Based on the SEGA video game, speculation has run wild on what the plot of the film will be and what nefarious plot Dr. Robotnik has planned.
According to GeekVibes Nations, one leak may have the answer. A Twitter user going by the screen name of “Rocks the Squirrel” posted a screenshot from a copyright website which he claims is the plot to ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2.’
The text explains, “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. Being directed by Jeff Fowler, and starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz.”
While this is an exciting development, it must be taken as a rumor as it has not been independently confirmed.
It has not been announced who will portray Knuckles in the sequel or whether his homeland of Angel Island will appear on screen.
As D-Rezzed previously reported, leaked images from the set of the film did show props resembling Sonic’s longtime flying fox sidekick Tails and his “friendly nemesis” Knuckles the Echidna.
It has been confirmed that Tim Folwer is returning to direct with Ben Schwartz returning to voice Sonic. ‘Horton Hears a Who’ actress Colleen O’Shaughnessey will voice Tails for the Paramount Pictures production.
The two-tailed fox made his first appearance in the 1992 SEGA Genesis game Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and has been Sonic’s consistent sidekick throughout the game series. Knuckles made his debut in the third entry to the original Sonic franchise.
