‘Sonic 2’ trailer features Knuckles and Tails
Despite the fact that his first trailer elicited such disgust from audiences that the whole movie had to be postponed and its main character was completely redesigned, Sonic the hedgehog eventually became a success. The film grossed more than $ 320 million worldwide, despite being released just weeks before the start of the pandemic. Less than two years later, the sequel is already almost over.
The boldly titled Sonic the hedgehog 2 reunites Ben Schwartz’s Sonic and James Marsden’s Tom for another battle with Jim Carrey’s evil Dr. Robotnik. But it also features two other characters from the Sonic video game series: Tails, voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessey, and Knuckles, voiced in a way by Idris Elba. You can see them all in the first trailer for the film below:
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
The world’s favorite blue hedgehog returns 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 of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey across the world to find the Emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. From the filmmakers behind The Fast and Furious and Deadpool, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voices of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally and Jim Carrey return, alongside new additions Shemar Moore , with Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.
A movie with Jim Carrey in a giant mustache and Idris Elba in an echidna with giant pointy gloves on his hands? What a strange timeline we find ourselves in. Sonic the hedgehog 2 is scheduled to open in theaters on April 8, 2022.
