Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a live-action film featuring Sonic the Hedgehog, and the sequel to the 2020 Sonic the Hedgehog film. The film and its release date was announced on February 10, 2021[1]. Ben Schwartz and Jim Carrey have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Sonic and Dr. Robotnik, respectively.

According to various sources, the film will feature the return of Tails in a prominent role, as well as the debut appearance of Knuckles the Echidna, initially as a secondary antagonist.


Eight months after defeating Doctor Robotnik and being adopted by Tom and Maddie Wachowski as their son, Sonic the Hedgehog attempts to help the public as a vigilante to little success. Tom advises Sonic to remain patient for the day his powers will be needed before he and Maddie depart for her sister Rachel's wedding in Hawaii. Sonic plans to have fun while home alone, but is attacked by Robotnik, who has returned with the help of Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles desires to honor the legacy of his extinct tribe and demands the location of the legendary Master Emerald, an ancient relic that allows its possessor to bend reality to their will.

Sonic is rescued by Miles "Tails" Prower, a two-tailed fox who idolizes him and came to warn him about Knuckles. Sonic convinces Tails to help him find the Master Emerald, while Robotnik reunites with his assistant Stone and, scheming to steal the emerald for himself, offers to help Knuckles. Sonic and Tails follow clues on a map from Sonic's deceased guardian Longclaw to Siberia, where they find a compass within an old temple. Robotnik and Knuckles track them and pursue Sonic and Tails down a mountain. During an ensuing avalanche, Robotnik and Knuckles steal the compass. Tom rescues Sonic and Tails by using a ring to teleport them to the wedding.

Rachel's fiancé and his wedding guests reveal themselves as undercover agents of the Guardian Units of Nations (G.U.N.) and capture Sonic, Tails, and Tom. Maddie and an irate Rachel work to rescue them while Robotnik and Knuckles find an underwater temple containing the Master Emerald. Sonic goes to the temple and fights Knuckles, but Robotnik steals the emerald and leaves Knuckles to die with Sonic as the temple collapses. Sonic and Knuckles escape and agree to work together as Tails rescues them in a biplane. Robotnik absorbs the Master Emerald and becomes omnipotent.

In Green Hills, Robotnik destroys G.U.N.'s forces and creates a giant robot resembling himself. Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles work together to fight the robot and reclaim the Master Emerald, but it shatters, releasing the seven Chaos Emeralds. Tom and Maddie rescue Sonic, who uses the Chaos Emeralds to transform into Super Sonic. He destroys the robot before dispersing the Emeralds and reverting back to normal. Knuckles restores the Master Emerald from the remaining shards and agrees to safeguard it with Sonic and Tails. The three resume an idyllic life with the Wachowskis.

Stone infiltrates G.U.N. as it begins searching for Robotnik in the mech's rubble. An agent reports to G.U.N. Commander Walters that a 50-year-old file containing coordinates to a research facility, which houses Project Shadow, has been uncovered.
