Is ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ A ‘Hop’ Sequel? Fans Weigh In

Shortly after the Sonic the Hedgehog trailer was released earlier today, a hilariously ridiculous thread started on Twitter that suggested the upcoming video game movie is actually a sequel to the 2011 animated comedy Hop, which features James Marsden teaming up with the Easter Bunny, voiced by Russell Brand. Sound familiar?

Now, even though we love the idea of Sonic being a Hop sequel and existing in the same universe, it’s worth noting that in Hop Marsden plays Fred O’Hare, whereas in Sonic, he plays Tom Wachowski. So, unless O’Hare changed his name to Wachowski after his run-in with the Easter Bunny (which would be hilarious), there’s little to no truth to this theory.

Having said that, regardless of whether Sonic the Hedgehog is Hop sequel or not, it doesn’t make the sequel theories any less amusing. Here are a few of our favorites:

Do you think the two movies are connected? Could Fred O’Hare have changed his name to Wachowski after his run-in with the Easter Bunny? Let us know in the comments below.
