Exclusive images of the Sonic movie sequel’s Seattle-themed film shoot in downtown Vancouver, another look at dramatic police pursuit scene

Take a look at our exclusive photo gallery of a Sonic movie sequel set in Vancouver, and read up on the latest filming info on the downtown filming.

It has been a busy week for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel after production crew revamped a corner of downtown Vancouver to be a stand-in for a fellow Pacific Northwest city at day, and to host a dramatic police pursuit scene at night.

The Emerald City

If the sequel’s production name wasn’t a hint, the city of Seattle, Washington will be prominently featured as a location in the upcoming sequel.

Filming permits obtained by Tails’ Channel confirmed that a section of downtown Vancouver, spanning from Hastings Street from Thurlow to Granville, and Howe Street from Cordova to Georgia, will be used as a stand-in for the nicknamed Emerald City.

Tails’ Channel correspondent Fenrir Wolf was able to arrive at the location before filming began, and took various exclusive photos of props and sets for the movie in detail.

During filming for the first Sonic movie in 2018, a section of downtown Vancouver was used as a stand-in for the city of San Francisco. Coincidentally, the sequel filmed in the exact same street that was featured the first film.

New Cinematographer

Before overnight filming began last week, a photo of a clapperboard from Canadagraphs revealed that the movie will be counting on a new cinematographer, Brandon Trost. Trost is known for being the cinematographer for The Disaster Artist.

Overnight police pursuit

Various Twitter users at the scene were able to take images and videos of Seattle-related props, right before a dramatic police chase with a armoured truck with controlled gunfire.
