Today’s forecast calls for a 100% chance of adventure as Jim Carrey and Ben Schwartz rang in The Game Awards with the world premiere of the first trailer for Paramount Pictures’ Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
The world’s favourite blue hedgehog is speeding back for a next-level adventure in the much-anticipated sequel to the successful 2020 adaptation of Sega’s flagship video game franchise. Directed once again by Jeff Fowler (soon to helm a new take on The Pink Panther), 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.
This time around, 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.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 will be rolling exclusively into cinemas in 2022 but, in the meantime, we’ll leave you to savour the first official trailer.
