2020’s videogame movie hit, Sonic the Hedgehog, were among the many films confirmed to appear on the new streaming service Paramount Plus at launch, with plans for the 2022 sequel to be added after its theatrical run.
ViacomCBS, the parent company of Paramount Pictures, announced during their presentation last Wednesday that a wide selection of recently released Paramount films, including Sonic, will be available to subscribers at launch.
The service also guaranteed that select upcoming films, including the Sonic sequel, will debut immediately following their domestic theatrical window of around 30 to 45 days, or after their debut on the American premium cable channel EPIX.
Paramount Plus is a new streaming service that will host multiple Paramount movies, content from CBS, and the MTV Networks suite of channels. The service will replace CBS All Access in existing territories, and will go head-to-head among the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, and Peacock.
