Sonic’s Third Movie “Takes A Lot” From Sonic Adventure 2, Says Producer

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Takes Inspiration from Sonic Adventure 2

The Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie is going to take a lot from Sonic Adventure 2, according to the movie’s producer.

Speaking to GamesRadar+ recently, Sonic 3 movie producer Toby Ascher explained how the third big screen outing for the blue blur would not only be a “giant, fun, incredible movie” but also one that “takes a lot” from the second Adventure title, which originally debuted on the Dreamcast in 2001.

This shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise after Shadow the Hedgehog, who made his debut in the same game, was teased at the end of the second movie. Ascher also mentioned how the third movie is “probably the most exciting thing” so far in this cinematic universe, and would draw some inspiration from games the core team grew up loving.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cyberpunk 2077 and John Wick star Keanu Reeves is set to voice Shadow the Hedgehog. It’s also been confirmed Crush 40’s Sonic Adventure 2 song ‘Live and Learn’ will return for the third movie outing.
