The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Make sure to catch Sonic the Hedgehog 2, only in cinemas.

We’ve been able to enjoy this lovable hedgehog in a few different ways—from the screens of your game consoles to comic books, and now in featured films. Although, there’s a new way to immerse yourself into Sonic’s world…jump into the action with Nanoleaf and our immersive lights panels.

How Nanoleaf Can Bring Sonic To Life In Your Home

I’m about to let you in on some pretty exciting news…drum roll please! 🥁

Nanoleaf is offering an exclusive Nanoleaf Shapes Starter Kit – Sonic Limited Edition (only available in the EU & UK) for your viewing pleasure. Invite any of the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 characters into your home, just in time to celebrate the newest movie release.

These modular RGB light panels come in Triangles, Mini Triangles, and Hexagons so you can arrange them to create custom designs. The Sonic Limited Edition Starter Kit comes with 32 Shapes panels (4 Triangles, and 28 Mini Triangles) so you can go the custom route or you can choose to arrange them into the shape of Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles. I guess now the question to answer is…how can you possibly pick just one character?!


Do you march to the beat of your own drum? Maybe you’re a witty problem solver who is always ready to jump into action? Then Sonic is definitely for you.

Since you’ve made it this far, I’m going to offer you an extra special tip. 🤫 Nanoleaf Shapes isn’t the only way to bring Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to your home! You can also use Nanoleaf Lines modular light bars to recreate the almighty Master Emerald.

Specialized Entertainment Features

Bringing a Sonic character home is amazing but it’s not enough! Now that you’ve picked your layout, what are some of the awesome features you can use to elevate your entertainment? Feel like you’ve jumped right into the action with Sonic, Tails, Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles, and try out these awesome immersive features:

• Seamlessly try out thousands of lighting Scenes in the Nanoleaf App or create your own custom creations with 16M+ colors. The options are endless—we’ve even created exclusive Scenes for Tails, Knuckles, and Sonic (although you may be surprised to learn Sonic’s favorite color is red).

• Planning on streaming the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie from your PC? Hook up your laptop to your TV and turn on the Screen Mirror feature—every battle will reflect onto your lights and surround your space for the most immersive movie night experience.

• Excited about the soundtrack? The built-in Rhythm Music Visualizer brings your music to life as the lights react and dance along in real-time.

• Think you’re faster than Sonic? Choose from interactive lighting scenes and play games like “Catch A Hedgehog”—whack as many panels as possible as they light up to test yourself.

So who will you pick and what entertainment feature are you most excited about? Share your favorites with us! And because I love to help (I fancy myself as a Sonic or Tails), here’s a setup guide for you to check out once you get your Limited Edition Starter Kit.
