Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles get ready to battle in the latest trailer for the upcoming sequel.
Sonic is back! And he’s brought with him a whole new medley of problems. After defeating Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik in the 2020 surprise-hit, Sonic has finally assumed himself as the world’s savior, but he’s set to face his biggest threat yet. Joining Dr. Robotnik for his second go-around at being a baddie is Idris Elba’s Knuckles, Sonic’s nefarious counterpart.
Joining Sonic on his latest adventure is his good friend Tails, who has been searching for the Hedgehog since the first film. With the film set to hit cinemas later next month, a brand new trailer has been released, teasing the long-awaited showdown between Knuckles and Sonic the Hedgehog.
As expected, Sonic’s snarky humor is back with a vengeance as he taunts Knuckles and Dr. Robotnik throughout. We also see brand new footage of Sonic and his human “family”, spearheaded by James Marsden.
A new poster has also been released, which strangely doesn’t feature Knuckles. Instead, an Emperor-like Dr. Robotnik looms over Sonic and Tails.
Here is the official synopsis for Sonic the Hedgehog 2:
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. 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. From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, 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.
Based on the SEGA video game characters, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is directed by Jeff Fowler and stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, Shemar Moore, Colleen O’Shaughnessey with Idris Elba and Jim Carrey.
