Before the pandemic, Sega and Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie debuted in theaters last February. Me being a massive fan of the Sonic franchise, the movie still surpassed all of my expectations. It was the perfect way to spend my Valentine’s Day last year, alongside two of my best friends. If you have yet to see the film, you’ll be happy to know that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is coming to Hulu on Feb. 18.
The film was a love letter to Sonic fans, including jokes and references specially for Sonic fans to pick up on, as those with Hulu will now see. Even if you’re not a fan of the character, there is still enough there for you to get some enjoyment out of it. Sonic the Hedgehog stars the likes of James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, and comedy film legend Jim Carrey. It is very much a “road trip” movie, with an enjoyable plot and fun moments.
After the film’s success, Paramount announced a sequel – which is currently scheduled for April 8, 2022 and will begin filming soon. No one really knows what to expect from the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel, but if you stuck around after the credits, you may have some inkling of what to expect. Marsden, Schwartz, and Carrey are all expected to reprise their roles in the next installment. Hopefully we’ll see appearances from other Sonic characters when the film releases next year.
In the meantime, Sonic the Hedgehog will keep you thoroughly entertained on Hulu next month.
