The sequel will bring back Jeff Fowler as the director, and original script writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller. Decisions have not yet been made regarding casting, and there is not yet a production start date.

The first film told the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) and his new best friend Tom (played by James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) as he plots world domination.

It went on to be huge at the box office – garnering the highest opening weekend of all time for a movie based on a video game.
