The movie released in theaters back on April 8, making May 24 one of the first days the movie is eligible to appear on a streaming platform after the 45-day theatrical exclusivity window. The movie saw great success during its early theatrical run, earning the largest opening weekend of any video game movie.
The popularity of the two Sonic movies already has Sega doubling down on the franchise. We already know a third Sonic movie is on the way, along with an Idris Elba-led Knuckles spin-off series in development for Paramount Plus.
