New posters for Sonic The Hedgehog 2 tease the debut of Tails, Knuckles, and the return of everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog.

After racing into cinemas in 2020 and winning the hearts of millions, Sonic the Hedgehog is set to return in just over a month. The highly-anticipated sequel will see Sonic attempting to be the best savior he can be, all the while juggling the return of the nefarious Dr. Robotnik. The scorned scientist has a special ace up his sleeve, namely Sonic’s archnemesis: Knuckles.

Voiced by Idris Elba, Knuckles is set to go head-to-head against Sonic for one of the most chaotic live-action battles in recent memory. Joining Sonic on his quest to defeat Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles is Tails, one of the most powerful allies the blue hedgehog could ask for.

As the sequel nears its release, Paramount has debuted a series of posters to celebrate today’s historic, palindrome date: 2/22/22. All the posters feature hilarious 2-related taglines, confirming that Sonic hasn’t lost his charm in the last two years.

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.
