Paramount Pictures and SEGA announced Thursday evening that they have begun development for a second film. There’s no word on casting or a release date.
Variety is reporting that the production team will return. Jeff Fowler will be the film’s director, while Patrick Casey and Josh Miller will be the screenwriters.
Fowler reacted to the news on Twitter, saying, “Round two with the Blue!” Meanwhile, Sonic’s voice actor Ben Schwartz reacted to the news with a victory sign emoji. One of the writers, Patrick Casey, responded, “2 Fast 2 Furriest.”
Right now, the community appears to be very excited about the sequel news. A sequel was essentially guaranteed after the film broke records in the box office.
