We know Sonic the Hedgehog 2 features Sonic and the teaser at the end of the first film revealed Tails. Photos shot While filming in Vancouver, a third anthropomorphic animal figure is shown who could join the cast. Potential movie spoilers, but come on, we all know who it is.
It’s not Big the Cat. It’s not Blaze the Cat. It’s not the disturbingly attractive bat. The set pictures, taken by @ Pursuit23 and acquired from the pop culture website Just Jaredshow a trio of characters believed to represent CGI characters on set. One is Sonic. One is tails. And then there‘s Ankle. Check out the set photo here.
What fans of Sonic the Hedgehog get excited about is the relative size of the three characters. Tails is a shorty, Sonic is Sonic sized, and Knuckles is bigger and more buffering than either. This is reminiscent of the Knuckles from the wonderful cartoon series with bad video game ties. Sonic boom. Sonic Boom Knuckles is pure joy even when he talks about feminism
It could be that the plastic knuckles on the movie set are just some kind of weird toy cameo. And if it’s a CGI character replacement, it likely doesn’t reflect the character’s final in-movie design. So let’s not get too hopeful. Medium high is fine.
