Hey, Paramount Pictures revealed the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 poster. On top of that, they said the first trailer will appear at the Game Awards. Whooo!
The official Sonic Twitter shared the movie poster that has Robotnik chasing Sonic who’s riding on Tails’ airplane. The sequel will see Robotnik escape the mushroom planet and chase down Sonic with Knuckles the Echidna as his partner. As shown in the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 poster, Miles Prower, or Tails, will be helping Sonic out, making it a tag team movie.
Ben Schwartz will return as Sonic as well as Jim Carrey as Robotnik. For Tails, Colleen O’Shaughnessey will voice him, and Idris Elba will voice Knuckles.
I partially grew up with Sonic. I never played the first few games, but I grew up with the cartoon Sonic X. Whether you’re a Sonic fan or not, you’ve heard that bumping theme song. From what I recall, there was a plot in the first few episodes where Robotnik tricked Knuckles into thinking that Sonic was his enemy, and that’s what they’re doing for the movie.
I’m not saying that they’re following the cartoon because Robotnik has done this in the games too. He has also tricked the echidna in Sonic Adventure, and the poster has the game’s signature red plane.
Are you excited? Stay tuned for the first trailer at the Game Awards and the movie’s release on April 8, 2022.
