Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Star Hypes Arrival Of Idris Elba

Sonic The Hedgehog 2

The first Sonic The Hedgehog movie was a surprise hit (you know, after it went through a MAJOR overhaul visually in regards to Sonic), and as a result of that, people were curious about how the next movie was going to be. Sure enough, following in line with the games, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will feature the arrival of Tails (Sonic’s loyal best friend) and Knuckles (Sonic’s somewhat loyal friend and sparring partner). What many were shocked about though was that Knuckles would be voiced by Idris Elba.

Elba is of course very big in the voice acting world as he’s done everything from Shere Khan to being in Zootopia and beyond, and in the reveal trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog 2, many were already in love with his voice for Knuckles.

Another key person that’s happy about Elba as Knuckles? Ben Schwartz, the voice of Sonic himself.

“Oh, you want me to absolutely destroy everything that’s happening in this movie, for the sequel that’s coming out in three months? The thing that everybody’s been making me not talk about for two years, you want me to destroy?” Schwartz joked with ComicBook.com. “This is what I’ll say, we’ve got Colleen O’Shaughnessey, who was from the video game and played Tails, she plays Tails, Idris Elba’s Knuckles, they’re both awesome in it and they look awesome. Jim Carrey is incredible in it. Incredible guest stars. Natasha Rothwell, who’s a powerhouse of a comedian, Adam Pally, who worked with [The Afterparty co-star] Sam [Richardson] and who’s worked with me before, is in it and incredibly funny in it.”

He added, “And I can’t tell you anything, but I will say, I’ve watched it many times and we’ve done a billion records, it is huge. It is epic. In terms of size, compared to the first one, this is a movie, this is a film, this is a movie-film.”

We’ll find out when the movie comes out later this year.
