The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie could easily be declared a success after a troubled start. USA Today caught up with the film’s director Jeff Fowler to find out what’s next for the spiky blue hedgehog. Fowler suggests that if there is another Sonic the Hedgehog Movie the next would feature more characters from the Sonic universe like Tails and Knuckles etc. However, he does insist there’s no official talks or plans for a sequel.
“There’s so many more great characters to bring in and just more stories to tell,” says director Jeff Fowler, who calls the “Sonic” saga a “remarkable journey.” He insists that there are no official talks or plans for a sequel.
“(But) nothing would bring me more happiness than getting another shot with these characters and to tell more stories. We’d love to do more with the Sonic cinematic universe,.”
“We would get that question a lot from fans, ‘Is Tails in it? Is Knuckles in it?’ All these fan-favorite characters,” says Fowler. “We had to do that little fan Easter egg with Tails and say, ‘We know you love these characters. We will absolutely get to them in future stories if we’re able to.’ “
