Sonic fans get ready, because Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is looking like it might be just as much fun as the Blue Blur’s original big-screen outing.
Even the biplane!
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. From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey returning, alongside new additions Shemar Moore, with Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.Paramount Pictures
Is anyone else shocked at how relatively close they’re following the games in these movies?! Outside of the Earth setting and the human characters, it looks like the Sonic films are falling right in line with the classic Genesis games. As shocking as it is, it’s pretty great too.
Knuckle up, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 lands in theaters on April 8th, 2022.
