The Plot For Sonic 3 Might Have Already Leaked

It's only been a few short months since "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" premiered in theaters, but some details about the upcoming sequel "Sonic the Hedgehog 3" may have already leaked. "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" broke video game movie records ` Paramount is working on a Knuckles focused spin-off show. The leak comes from Sonic Paradise (translated via Sonic Stadium), which reported that a weekly trade magazine, Production Weekly, included details about the third film, which apparently just began filming. The third "Sonic" movie is set to hit theaters on December 20, 2024, over two years away at this point. While this is just an unconfirmed leak, spoilers ahead if you want to play it safe.

According to Production Weekly, the movie will center around the "Shadow Project," which Dr. Robotnik's grandfather originally started. Sonic, Knuckles, and Tails will have to battle and defeat Shadow. Robotnik also uses the fragments of the Chaos Emeralds to create a metallic version of Sonic. Other characters, like Amy and Big the Cat, will appear via a portal to help Sonic and his friends battle Robotnik and Shadow.

Here's how fans reacted to this possible plot.

Fans react to possible Sonic 3 movie plot

It's important to note that theĀ Tails Channel, which focuses on Sonic related news and information, took to Twitter to claim that the Production Weekly plot synopsis is inconsistent with the information it has heard. Tails Channel did not state which parts were inaccurate or what they have heard instead. In addition to that, Jim Carrey stated after the premiere of "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" that he would be retiring from acting, which would make it difficult for Dr. Robotnik to be in the movie.

Regardless, fans took the plot synopsis and started running wild with hopes for the movie, including the possible team-up between Sonic and Shadow to take down what sounds like Metal Sonic. Other fans were more skeptical of the leak, feeling like it sounds a bit overcomplicated and crowded. One person even compared the busy plot to "Spider-Man 3," which had too many villains, among other issues. It seems as though fans don't want the filmmakers to have to cover multiple character origins and introductions, something that could bog down the movie. Fans also want the adaptation of Shadow and Metal Sonic to be high quality, meaning the characters should get their own time to shine on screen. Fans will have to wait until the first "Sonic 3" trailer is released to know more about the plot.
