On Apr. 8, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” will be out in theaters for all eyes to see. The first “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie came out in 2020 and left off with Dr. Robotnik out to get Sonic, traveling anywhere he can with the intent to destroy him. During the end credits, an orange two tailed fox, named Tails,  emerges from a ring portal on a search for Sonic as well.

“I saw the first one and liked it,” junior Sean Ireland said. “It was good, normally they make video game movies kind of bad but that was a good one.”

In “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” Sonic settles down in Green Hills and is eager to show that he has what it takes to be a real hero. As Dr. Robotnik is on the search for a mystical emerald that has the ability to destroy civilizations, he brings along his sidekick Knuckles. Sonic and Tails meet up and they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.

“[I’m excited for] Knuckles, he’s pretty cool,” Ireland said. “I’ve always liked Knuckles the most so that’s pretty cool to see him on the screen.”
