Leaked ‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ Photos Reveal Knuckles The Echidna Prop

A sequel to the 2020 film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ was inevitable after the success of the SEGA video game adaption. A title teaser for the upcoming follow-up was released in March, allowing fans to speculate about plot details, possible character appearances, and Easter eggs from the games.
A series of leaked photos from fan e-zine Tails’ Channel shows the set and seems to confirm at least two appearances. The pictures revealed props resembling Sonic’s longtime flying fox sidekick Tails and his “friendly nemesis” Knuckles the Echidna. While Tails was widely expected to have a role in the plot, this seems to confirm the appearance of the strong-willed guardian of Angel Island and its Master Emerald.
The leaked photos also teased the return of Sonic’s human allies Sheriff Tom Wachowski and his veterinarian wife Maddie, played by James Marsden and Tika Sumpter respectively.


Another photo reveals a connection to ‘Sonic Adventure 2,’ with squad cars marked with SA-2. This is possibly a reference in a car marked ‘G,’ reminiscent of the Guardian Units of Nations, an organization formed to stop the threat of Dr. Robotnik and Sonic’s rival Shadow the Hedgehog.


Several photos also reveal how Fort Langley village in Canada is being transformed into Green Hill, a town that has a striking resemblance to the “Green Hill Zone” level featured in the Sonic the Hedgehog video games.


There was also a released video of Jim Carrey taking flight as the villain Dr. Robotnik, Sonic’s most recurring adversary in the video game franchise. Carrey is reprising the role from the first film.


It has been confirmed that Tim Folwer is returning to direct with Ben Schwartz returning to voice Sonic. ‘Horton Hears a Who’ Colleen O’Shaughnessey will voice Tails for the Paramount Pictures production.
The two-tailed fox made his first appearance in the 1992 SEGA Genesis game Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and has been Sonic’s consistent sidekick throughout the game series. Knuckles made his debut in the third entry to the original Sonic franchise.
