BIG MOVIE: SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 Filming in B.C. Next Spring

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

A big movie codenamed Emerald Hill (think Green Hills) with a production company called Red Energy Films (think Tails) showed up on the B.C. production list today.

Working title: Emerald Hill

Production Co.: Red Energy Films Inc.

Target filming dates: March 15th to May 10th, 2021.

Sounds like the Sonic the Hedgehog sequel. Paramount and Sega said they’d started  development on a sequel earlier this year.

The live-action/animation movie grossed over $58 million on its opening weekend in February and was one of the first released early on home entertainment after theatres shut down around the world out of Covid-19 fears.

What’s it about?

Sonic the Hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz) and the Green Hills Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden) team up to stop Dr. Eggman Robotnik (Jim Carrey)’s plan for world domination.

At the “tail” end of the movie, Sonic’s buddy Tails shows up in Green Hills.

If these readings are accurate, I’ve found him. I just hope I’m not too late. — Tails.

The original Sonic Movie shot in B.C. from late July to mid-October in 2018, spinning off $37.5 million into the economy.

Cast: James Marsden, Jim Carrey and Tika Sumpter.
