Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is racing to theaters on April 8, but it's already time to look ahead to a third live-action big screen outing. SEGA and Paramount Pictures announced that development has officially commenced on a third installment, and there's also a live-action Sonic series in the works for Paramount+.
While details are still light, Idris Elba will continue to voice Knuckles in the live-action show, which is set to launch sometime in 2023.
