Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Debuts Final Trailer

Over the weekend, Paramount released what they say is the FINAL Sonic The Hedgehog 2 trailer (though we’ll see).

In the opening scene, Tom is attending a wedding for some reason, when he gets a call from Sonic telling him to throw a teleportation ring quickly so the ‘hog can escape whatever unspecified predicament he appears to be in. Tom excuses himself from the crowd, walks a safe distance and throws the…..yeah, no, he does it right down the center of the aisle so Sonic and his new buddy Tails can crash right into the bride and groom. Classic Tom.

One of the things the producers promised early on was that in the sequel there would be a lot more Sonic and a lot less “boring ol’ humans,” and this trailer seems to indicate they stick to that promise. Tom barely appears after that opening scene, but there’s plenty of Sonic racing, jumping, riding Tails’ airplane, and most crucially, snowboarding down the side of a large mountain. You WILL get what you pay for!

You’ll also get more of Jim Carrey as Robotnik / Eggman, who has found a way back to Earth thanks to the help of a new ally — a red echidna with spikes on his knuckles, voiced by Idris Elba. Knuckles should know better than to trust Robotnik, for we all know what the mad doctor is REALLY after….the immense emerald of power the echidna has been appointed to guard.

Ben Schwartz returns as the voice of Sonic, while Colleen O’Shaughnessey is performing Tails — she is also the voice of Tails in the games, and it’s nice to see Sega not recasting for the sake of star power (at least for this one character). Humans James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and Natasha Rothwell return alongside Carrey.

A mention must be made of the Sonic 2 poster that was also revealed alongside the trailer. It’s a great homage to the iconic boxart for the Sonic 2 video game:
