Well, looks like we can expect to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2 soon. What with them having finished filming just now.

So many mushrooms, but no badgers or snakes?

Jeff Fowler, the director behind the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 film, just Tweeted on May 13, 2021, that the team has wrapped up filming in Vancouver, Canada. A photo of a seated Fowler himself flashing a peace symbol and holding a clapperboard in front of a mushroom-filled background accompanied that Tweet. And when I say mushroom-filled, I mean it. You can see prop mushrooms that are taller than a person there behind him. Clearly, he is trying to tell us something about a certain someone trapped in a mushroom world.

Jeff Fowler also accompanied his Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Tweet with his own message:

That’s a wrap in Vancouver! Thank you to all the amazing cast/crew in this city… so much incredible talent helping make #SonicMovie2 truly special (and spoiler alert… EPIC!)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2: The Appearance of Knuckles?

Life-sized models of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles being placed on set of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
A bit plasticky, but it will do for now.

With the filming for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 wrapped up, it means that hopefully soon, we’ll finally get to see and hear Knuckles the Echidna onscreen. A short while ago, we saw life-sized models of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles on set. The purpose of the models is to help the CGI animators accurately depict lighting and such, but that’s not important for now. What’s important is the clear appearance of Knuckles: a longtime fan favorite for the series. In an accurate to the games look to boot. It’s a far cry from how Sonic originally looked if anyone remembers that horror. For those of you who don’t:

Sonic's original creepy design in the first movie.
Kill it! Kill it with fire before it lays eggs!

Yeah, I think we’re all glad that Jeff Fowler learned from his earlier mistake. That just makes Sonic the Hedgehog 2 all the better. At least, when we finally get to see it.


Jeff Fowler reported on Twitter that he and his team have finished filming for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in Vancouver. Now all that’s left is to finish the rest of the process of making a film. Based on the hints, teases, and leaks so far; I think we can all expect a pretty good film when it comes out in theaters on April 8, 2022.
