Sonic 2: The Movie is here and we're guessing it will make fans of the first movie and the gaming canon very happy Directed by Jeff Fowler. This sequel moves Sonic's story of family and friendship forward at supersonic speeds, but also sets a super-ambitious approach to the story's next chapter.
In it, the GUN agents reveal that while they can't confirm Robotnik's whereabouts. After the film's explosive ending, they assume he's dead (a convenient way out for Jim Carrey if he decides to quit acting, as he's recently hinted). But the agents have managed to track down Robotnik's files and have made a discovery.
It seems that the villain was working on something very interesting. A secret laboratory is shown containing a chamber with a sleeping hedgehog inside A black and red hedgehog.
We know Shadow, of course, from the 2005 game of the same name. Shadow the Hedgehog Created by Robotnik's grandfather Gerald 50 years ago, when he attempted to create "the ultimate life form". To harness the chaos emeralds, Shadow was part of Gerald's plan to cure his granddaughter, Maria Robotnik. Of her terminal illness Shadow had an affectionate and protective bond with Maria, who died before her eyes when GUN. Deemed Shadow too dangerous and captured him, leaving him in stasis until the current Dr Eggman freed him.
Shadow has a purpose, he is somewhat cold and quite misanthropic. And has really only cared about Maria He has sometimes wanted to destroy the world to avenge Maria. But he has also expressly protected humanity in her honor They are two different purposes with the same motivation He does whatever it takes and justifies himself: "Maria would have wanted it that way".
Shadow can match Sonic's speed and is pretty much his equal when it comes to abilities. Though he is less inclined to teamwork Time will tell how he'll show up in Sonic 3: The Movie.
In the final act of Sonic 2: The Movie, Robotnik (having betrayed Knuckles, of course) absorbs the Master Emerald. Which has the combined power of all Chaos Emeralds, into his body, transforming him into a terrifyingly multi-voiced being powerful and almost omnipotent. Able to turn your thoughts into reality As we all know, his thoughts are scary and selfish. So the fate of the Earth and probably the afterlife is now at stake When he confronts the authorities. He begins to use his ridiculous power to attract the metal and reform it into a huge, mustachioed, high-tech killer robot, which he controls by floating in space inside his head It's absolutely deadly. With lasers, missiles, and a control station for Lee Majdoub's Agent Stone (which Robotnik also uses) First Green Hills, then the world.
Knuckles, Tails, and Sonic join forces to take down Robotnik, forming a plan as they go Sonic decides to be the bait. Leaving Tails and Knuckles free to attack Robotnik by surprise and release the Master Emerald. Wiping out the divine power from him Sonic's idea works, but he is injured in the process, and he desperately limps towards the fallen emerald.
James Marsden's Tom and Tika Sumpter's Maddie race to save Sonic from being crushed by Robotnik's. Giant robotic feet Sonic hopes the Master Emerald can save them, but it crumbles in his hands, spilling chaos emeralds. Leaving him utterly defeated Tom, Maddie and Sonic can't escape and are sure to be crushed They hold hands in acceptance of their shared destiny as family when then.
