The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is getting a sequel, and today the official name of this upcoming movie has been confirmed.
The new movie will be named, unsurprisingly, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and it will hit theaters worldwide on April 8th, 2022, as confirmed by a new teaser that has been shared online today. The teaser sadly doesn't show much, but the movie's new logo leaves little doubt to the fact that Tails will indeed join Sonic this time around as teased in last year's movie.
