Sonic the Hedgehog 2, a blue extraterrestrial hedgehog with superspeed that lives on Earth with his human companions, is the subject of the forthcoming superhero comedy film Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sonic is enjoying his independence after defeating the wicked Dr. Robotnik and saving the planet in the first film.
However, his old foe soon reappears under the new pseudonym of Dr. Eggman, in quest of an emerald that would provide him such power that he will be able to construct and destroy civilizations in a matter of seconds. Oh, and Robotnik gets a new ally in the form of Knuckles the Echidna. Sonic joins forces with an old buddy, Tails, to rescue the emerald before Robotnik gets his hands on it and wreaks devastation on the world he now considers home.
Sonic the Hedgehog film series is based on Sega’s 1991 video game franchise of the same name. The previous film’s creative crew returns for the sequel, with Jeff Fowler as director and Pat Casey, Josh Miller, and John Whittington as writers.

Who Are the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Characters That Have Been Confirmed?
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will see the heroic hedgehog return to lead the tale with some old pals, as well as a few new characters who will accompany him on his adventure as allies, adversaries, and frenemies.
- Sonic the Hedgehog — Sonic is an extraterrestrial anthropomorphic blue hedgehog from another planet that arrives on Earth to defend it from Dr. Robotnik, his arch-nemesis. He befriends Tom Wachowski, a Green Hills officer, and asks for his assistance in stopping Robotnik. Sonic has made himself at home with Tom and his wife, Maddie, by the sequel. Sonic tracks down his old pal Tails and embarks on a journey with him while the couple is on vacation.
- Ivo Robotnik/Dr. Eggman — Sonic’s arch-nemesis, Robotnik is a mad scientist whose sole goal is to capture Sonic and figure out how to exploit his super-speed and other abilities to rule the world. He was beaten by Sonic on his previous mission and exiled to a mushroom world, where he promises to return and exact his revenge. Now, under the pseudonym of Dr. Eggman, Robotnik is returned with a new scheme to conquer the world that requires the use of a particular emerald (Master Emerald, perhaps?).
- The Echidna Knuckles – Knuckles is a red echidna who joins Dr. Eggman as another anthropomorphic critter. He is a skilled fighter, but he is also irritable and gullible. He’ll use his tremendous strength to track down the emerald of enormous power.
- The sheriff of Green Hills and Sonic’s friend, Thomas Michael “Tom” Wachowski. Tom aided Sonic in defeating Robotnik and saving the Earth on his last mission. He is not there in the sequel as Sonic embarks on his new adventure. Will Tom reunite with his tiny blue pal? Probably.
- Tom Wachowski’s wife and a veterinarian, Maddie Wachowski assisted Tom and Sonic in defeating Robotnik in the first film.
- Agent Stone – Stone was Robotnik’s personal aide. Stone takes his boss’s position once he is dispatched to the mushroom world. But what happens if Robotnik reappears? We’ll have to wait and see on that.
