Here's if Sonic 2 is Streaming on Paramount Plus

It's finally here.

April 7, 2022

Recently, we’ve seen several big movies coming to streaming services on the first day of their theatrical release. Well, with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arriving in theaters tomorrow, fans wonder if Paramount Pictures is following a similar pattern with the much-awaited sequel of the 2020 movie.

Sonic 2 brings back the original cast of the first movie, with Ben Schwartz reprising the role of Sonic. Jim Carrey is also coming back to give another astonishing performance as Dr. Robotnik. James Marsden and Tika Sumpter will be back as Thomas Michael Wachowski and Maddie Wachowski. Besides the old cast, some other big names are joining the project through the sequel, including Idris Alba as Knuckles and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Miles “Tails” Prower.


The first Sonic movie proved that video game live-action adaptations could offer us so much if they are done right. So, it’s safe to say that fans have great expectations from the sequel. So far, the movie has mostly received positive reviews from its international release. Now, it’s time for the fans in the US to see if Sonic 2 lives up to its name.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Theatrical release

Paramount Pictures is bringing Sonic The Hedgehog 2 to the US theatres on Friday, April 8th, 2022. You can buy tickets for the movie through the movie’s official website. However, if you don’t wish to visit a theatre, there’s no other way of watching the movie, at least for now. That’s because the sequel isn’t hitting streaming services with its theatrical release.

Sonic 2 Should Arrive on Paramount Plus in May 2022

Officially, Paramount Pictures haven’t confirmed a streaming release date for Sonic 2. However, Paramount follows a pattern of releasing its movies immediately after their theatrical run is over, which generally lasts for 45 days.

Latest Paramount movies such as Jackass Forever and Scream 5 had a 45-day run in theatres, and they arrived on the streaming service right after that window. So, if the production house takes the same approach with Sonic The Hedgehog 2, then you might get it on Paramount Plus in the last week of May.

Is Sonic 2 Worth Watching in Theatres?

Several movie enthusiasts may wonder if the sequel of Sonic the Hedgehog is worth spending their time in a theatre. Well, similar to the first movie, Sonic 2 has received mixed reviews, and currently, the film is sitting at a rating of 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, the audience score has yet to take its place on the website.

Most critics have appreciated the movie for Jim Carrey’s jaw-dropping portrayal of Dr. Robotnic. However, some people have criticized it for lacking heart when compared to its predecessor.
