Knuckles, Dr. Robotnik, Tails, and more shine in these brand new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 character posters.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to race into cinemas later next month. The highly-anticipated sequel comes off the heels of the first film, which debuted to positive reception in 2020. One of the highest-grossing video game films of all time, Sonic the Hedgehog won audiences thanks to its fresh humor, nail-biting action sequences, and irreverent performances, particularly from Jim Carrey’s unhinged Dr. Robotnik.
The terrifying and maniacal Dr. Robotnik is set to return for the sequel and he’s brought with him one of Sonic’s most nefarious foes: Knuckles. Joining Sonic on his latest adventure is his good friend Tails, who has been searching for the blue hedgehog since the first film.
With the film’s release imminent, Fandango has released a variety of new character posters highlighting the various heroes and villains from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
Here is the official synopsis for Sonic the Hedgehog 2:
The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
