“Sonic – The Movie” has become one of the best game adaptations of the last decades (of which the genre is not promising enough to involve us).
As production details on the upcoming film begin to emerge, rumors suggest the sequel will include Knuckles the Echidna, one of the franchise’s most popular supporting characters.
Considering what director Jeff Fowler said earlier, and that Tails figures prominently in the original film’s post-credits scene, Knuckles looks like the franchise’s kind of natural progression.
According to The Illuminerdi, Knuckles will have a bigger role in the streak and will be able to slide and climb walls.
“For the first movie, we were just watching the 1991 game and seeing where it all started to keep it simple. We really tried to hit Sonic and Robotnik and create their rivalry. We tell the origin story a bit, making everyone fall in love with him as a character and hope for more. And so, now we can open up and bring in some of these other characters that the fans know and love. And yes, I mean, no one is more excited than me to have this opportunity, ”Fowler told ComicBook.
“Sonic” carries with it considerable potential to become a saga, all the more under the command of Jeff Fowler and the script signed by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel, which leaves not just one, but two hooks for them. future iterations.
Warning: too many spoilers to come.
In the final battle between Sonic (Ben Schwartz) and Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey), the hero ends up using his interdimensional travel magical rings to chase the villain out of Earth, more specifically to a horrible world inhabited by nothing. other than gigantic mushrooms.
Taking into account that the dangerous scientist has a gigantic intellect, one would imagine that he could survive and has already begun to devise a new plan to complete his mission to capture Sonic and use his powerful abilities to rule the world (and maybe the universe). After all, before being banished from his reality, he managed to hide and keep one of the hedgehog’s thorns, loaded with inexplicable force, safe. In the final scenes, we can even see that Robotnik’s iconic mustache has already started to grow – and his insanity has reached frighteningly deadly levels as well.
However, as already mentioned, that’s not all: the second post-credit scene is the first holdover from the expansion of “Sonic” mythology, introducing another classic character from the games: Miles “Tails” Prower.
For those who don’t remember, Tails is a fox with multiple fused tails alluding to the kitsune mythological creature of Japanese culture. Its primary power allows it to propel itself through the air like a helicopter (however, for a limited time) and, as soon as it appears in the closing seconds of the feature film, it is realized that it is coming to Earth as well. search for Sonic.
Tails is the main character’s best friend in the games, having been created precisely to accompany him on his various adventures. And now new questions arise – and demand answers that must be answered in sequence: after all, we are led to believe that the fox, like the hedgehog, inhabited a lonely island and had only one keeper. , eventually forced to leave your homeland to survive. Or, maybe Sonic’s former tutor sent her to something much bigger.
Among these doubts, others also arise, including the following: Will other characters from the “Sonic” franchise appear as well? Will we see Knuckles, Nack, Chaotix and Amy Rose in future productions?
The story revolves around Sonic as he tries to adjust to new life on Earth with his new human best friend, Officer Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try to stop the evil Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his powers to dominate humanity.
Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) voices Sonic. The cast includes Jim Carrey, Adam Pally Neal McDonough. The management is Jeff Fowler.
