The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie surprised just about everyone when it came out. Now it’s time for our favorite blue hedgehog’s second adventure. This time he takes some familiar faces with him. You can see him below in the game’s first trailer, which was revealed at The Game Awards 2021.
Obviously, Knuckles is the main asset of this new Sonic film, voiced by none other than Idris Elba. And we’re thrilled to see Sonic’s sidekick Tails also be featured in this new movie. Tails is voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessy, who has also voiced the character in several games.
In the story, Knuckles is controlled by the evil Dr. Robotnik to take on Sonic (Ben Schwartz) and Tails. dr. Robotnik is once again played by Jim Carrey. The top actor now also features an over-the-top mustache in this new film, just like Eggman in the games.
The first Sonic movie was a succes but had to overcome gruesome critiques before it even released. Sonic’s original character design was heavily slammed by fans. Luckily the studio listened and reworked the models to everyone’s liking before the release.
So far we’re very pleased with what we’ve seen from Sonic the Hedgehog 2. We can’t wait for the final release, which is scheduled for April 8, 2022.
