Here’s a curious surprise. Paramount has swiftly confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog will get a third film even long before its first sequel even hit theaters. The second entry has just been released in some select countries with a US release this weekend. So, director Jeff Fowler is currently busy with interviews. In one with Collider, he has revealed that he isn’t signed on yet for the already confirmed third project. While one might assume they are already working on the story, it seems they are doing so without the director’s involvement.
Nothing would make me happier, I’m not officially involved with any of the additional films yet, but I’m so proud of this movie, I’m so proud of the first movie, so excited for fans to see it. They’re really incredible movies to make.Jeff Fowler
What is interesting is that the words “additional films” may hint at some other spinoffs being in some form of development. So far, we know that Knuckles will get his own Paramount+ spinoff series, but it’s unclear what the story they might explore and if it might even tie into the third entry. If they are working on other spinoffs, it seems that Paramount is all-in to establish a cinematic universe that further explores the many colorful characters in Sonic’s world. At this point, we’ll just have to wait until we get an official name for this newly established universe.
