Paramount Studios has announced that the third entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog film franchise has already received a release date; December 20, 2024.
No other details were provided, but based on the second movie’s ending, fans already have tons to speculate about. Shadow the Hedgehog will be joining the fray, and much discussion has been centered on whether his tragic, dark past will be explored in this character iteration. Personally, I’m sure hoping it is, but I also don’t know if having a child shot on screen is something they can get away with for a movie marketed towards kids.
Regardless, I’m plenty excited nonetheless.
Also, thanks to the YouTube channel FilmeyEnterintament for uploading an official clip of the second movie’s ending, as this article’s featured image originates from that. Using the low-quality GIF below was a bit of a hard sell.
The official tweet announcing this upcoming development is viewable below:
