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

The upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie is said to draw inspiration from the popular game Sonic Adventure 2, according to the film’s producer. In a recent interview with GamesRadar+, producer Toby Ascher revealed that the third installment in the Sonic movie series will not only be a “giant, fun, incredible movie,” but will also take a lot from Sonic Adventure 2, which first appeared on the Dreamcast in 2001.

This news shouldn’t be too surprising, especially after the second movie teased the appearance of Shadow the Hedgehog, who made his debut in Sonic Adventure 2. Ascher expressed that the third movie is shaping up to be the most exciting project in the cinematic universe so far, and it will draw inspiration from the games that the core team grew up loving.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keanu Reeves, known for his roles in Cyberpunk 2077 and John Wick, is set to voice Shadow the Hedgehog in the film. Additionally, Crush 40’s iconic song ‘Live and Learn’ from Sonic Adventure 2 has been confirmed to make a return in the third movie.
