The third Sonic the Hedgehog movie is set to hit cinemas in just over two years, Paramount has announced, with a release date of December 20, 2024. Not much is known yet about Sonic 3, but the announcement was accompanied by a gif of Sonic with both Tails and Knuckles, so we can assume both characters will be returning for the next movie.
The upcoming film is a part of Paramount's ambitious plans for a Sonic the Hedgehog cinematic universe, which will also include a Knuckles-centric TV show on Paramount+, with Idris Elba reprising his voice role for the show.
The Knuckles spin-off series is planned to come to Paramount+ in 2023, making it the next entry in the franchise. It's unclear at this point whether other characters like Sonic and Tails will appear in the show, and how much the 2024 film will follow on from the events of the series, so we'll have to wait and see how Paramount plans to handle the Sonic cinematic universe.
Sonic also has a new game coming this year, Sonic Frontiers, an open-world adventure game that promises to shake up the long-running franchise with a new approach. The game doesn't have an official release date yet, but is set to come to PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One before the end of the year.
