In anticipation of the imminent April 8 release date, Paramount has unleashed the final trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
The world’s favorite 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 of 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 running and rolling exclusively into cinemas on April 2022 , although fans will also get the chance to see it on W·ednesday, April 6th at an early access screening fan event.
This screening event will air at 6:00PM local time in participating theatres and will be presented exclusively in premium formats.
