One of the most awaited series Sonic the Hedgehog is racing toward a big-screen sequel.

EW has confirmed that Paramount Pictures is officially in the making with Sega Sammy on a sequel film to the recent live-action videogame adaptation. Jeff Fowler will be back as a director, with Pat Casey and Josh Miller once again writing the script.

The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released in February and is now the highest-grossing videogame movie ever at the domestic box office. But the path to success was not smooth, as the movie’s release was delayed three months after criticisms of the CGI character led to a complete redesign. It was Sonic’s human teeth in the first trailer that were shocking and upsetting fans, to the point where the creative team went back to the drawing board and totally overhauled the main character’s look. (Ben Schwartz voiced Sonic.)

That correction of dentistry has proved to be exactly what the movie needed, and it went on to gross more than $300 million worldwide, not counting territories where it has yet to open due to the coronavirus pandemic, such as China and Japan. (Also in response to the pandemic, the movie got an early release on digital.)

Sonic the Hedgehog is the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. The adventure comedy followed Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) as they got together to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. Tika Sumpter also starred as Maddie.

There are no casting announcements as of yet for the sequel. Variety first reported this news.
