Knuckles refers to the currently in development Paramount Plus series that is a spin-off of the Sonic the Hedgehog 2020 film. The series is being directed by Jeff Fowler, who directed the first two Sonic movies, with an unknown number of returning cast members.

The tweet, announcing that production had started on the series, quickly started to spread, gaining over 1.4 million views in one week (shown below).

An interview with Variety that went out later in the day later confirmed what the plot of the movie is, as it is meant to be watched after Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the third installment. Supposedly, the plot is supposed to revolve around the doofus character Wade, who is taught by Knuckles how to be a true Echidna warrior. This has caused people to guess at jokes the series will make, with Twitter[3] user @Ovirtuous predicting the entire series will be a series of obvious jokes going over the character's heads (shown below).
