Locals are sharing more photos from the set of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that is currently filming in Metro Vancouver and stars Jim Carrey.
The Canada-born actor was filming in Fort Langley earlier this week, and a couple of people have mentioned on social media that they spotted him.
The funnyman stars as Robotnik in the film franchise's second instalment. The first film, Sonic the Hedgehog (2020), was about a "small-town police officer" who teams up with a blue, lightning-fast, extraterrestrial hedgehog to "defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments" on the space critter, according to IMDb.
Fans shared several photos from the set over the past week. Katia Stano told Vancouver Is Awesome that the film set has taken over Fort Langley's Glover Road. She added that it "looks like a military invasion with helicopter and tanks included!"
Now, several other people have shared recent images and videos of the completely transformed village community.

So I went Fort Langley and saw that they were filming the Sonic The Hedgehog 2 film there. It was cool seeing the plane in person. I wish I could have seen @JimCarrey but oh well, it was cool either way pic.twitter.com/XvT4vguyTB— WJ Lights (@wyattjanzen05) April 20, 2021
