Knuckles is in hot pursuit of Sonic the Hedgehog in the latest clip from the upcoming sequel!
Sonic the Hedgehog is finally set to race into cinemas once again later next month. After a successful debut in 2020, everyone’s favorite hedgehog is back and he’s brought with him some familiar friends and nefarious does. Joining Sonic on his latest mission to thwart Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik is the fan-favorite Tails. Of course, Robotnik has something up his sleeves as well, as Idris Elba is joining the franchise as Sonic’s greatest threat yet: Knuckles.
The latest clip from the upcoming sequel sees Knuckles chasing after Sonic on a snowy hill. Both are snowboarding down and Knuckles has some trouble capturing the speedster. Naturally, the Ben Schwartz-voiced blue hedgehog takes some time to roast Knuckles.
The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back 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.

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.
