After all the controversy with the first film and the original render of Sonic, the film ended up being pretty good. I can’t think of a better actor to play the villain in this than Jim Carrey. And now he is back for all the fun of chasing down Sonic for his power yet again.
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.
The bad doctor is back. However, he doesn’t return alone as we finally get our first look at Knuckles (voiced by Idris Elba) who is apparently aligned with the doctor, and Tails who comes to support Sonic. And the jewel at the center of this story, an emerald. I have to say I am just as excited for this sequel as I was after watching the first one. So check it out and tell us what you are most excited about with this first look at the new film.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is set for theatres April 2022.
