The first Sonic the Hedgehog film, which was released in 2020 before the COVID-19 lockdown, was a huge success at the box office that it prompted the studio to give an official green light to the sequel. There's a lot of excitement now for the next installment as it is expected to feature more characters from the video game including Knuckles and Tails. As we are heading closer to the release, we now have our final look at the upcoming film.

Paramount Pictures has released the final trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which gave us brand new footage to the upcoming film which showed the titular character's epic globe-trotting adventure as he is now facing the return of a more-powerful Dr. Robotnik, who he now teams up with Knuckles to look for the emerald that could destroy civilizations. Luckily, Sonic has Tails on his side to help him save the world.

Based on the new trailer, it looks like the film is going to have a much grander scale since Sonic now has to save the entire world, not just the town of Green Hills. Also, they featured more Knuckles and Tails, who are the two exciting additions in the film. As teased in the last seconds, it seems that they will give us the much-awaited battle between Sonic and Knuckles. We can definitely bet that it will be the main highlight of the film and, if you're familiar with video games, you know how big a deal it is to see them fight on the big screen.

Per the official synopsis: "After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands."

Returning cast members include James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey.
