news culture Sonic: a third film and a live action series with Idris Elba formalized, everything you need to know about the annocnes
While the trailers for the movie Sonic 2 are multiplying, two other productions are already in preparation on the side of Paramount Pictures: they are a movie and a series dated for next year.
Sonic, projects full of shoes
Paramount+ took the lead. A streaming and video-on-demand platform like Netflix or Disney+, she posted a long thread on Twitter last night where she discussed her many upcoming projects. Among them, we note the presence of a committed season 2 for the Halo series, a Transformers animated series or even a third part for A Quiet Place. But there has also been news on the Sonic projects, and they are the ones that interest us in this article:
Paramount+ has formalized the development of a third Sonic film, even before the release of sonic 2 At the movie theater. A collaboration with SEGA, whose CEO shared his feelings :
We are very pleased to announce that the third Sonic feature film and the first live-action series in the Sonic universe are currently in development. We have a remarkable partnership with Paramount, and we’re excited to continue to expand the Sonic franchise with them in 2022.
A Knuckles series for 2023
And if you read the above two statements correctly, it’s not just a third Sonic movie that’s been announced, but a series in live action centered on Knuckles. The red echidna will be the subject of a series with an unknown plot, but which we can legitimately think will focus on the origins of the character: he is the last survivor of his clan and one of the guardians of the mother emerald. Expected for 2023, the series will still see Idris Elba double the character.
A first interpretation of the red echidna for the famous actor (The Office, TheWire and films from the Marvel universe) that we can enjoy (or not?) as soon as the film Sonic 2 is released. It is expected on March 30 in French cinemas. Finally, it is worth remembering that Sonic is basically a video game franchise whose first opus was released in 1991 and which continues to exist today since Sonic Frontiers, a sonic version of Breath of the Wild, is expected to the last quarter of 2022 on PC and consoles.
