SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 Trailer Looks Insane In The Best Way Possible; Finally Unleashes Knuckles

The first official trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has arrived, and it was well worth the wait as we get our first look at footage from the sequel and Idris Elba as the fan-favorite Knuckles!

During The Game Awards, Paramount Pictures finally released the first official trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which looks to take the whole premise to another level as the lovable hedgehog (Ben Schwartz) finds himself on a collision course with his greatest challenge yet: Knuckles (Idris Elba). 

The Jeff Fowler-directed sequel seems to really lean into the video game aesthetic even more than the original did, which seems like it will pay off in its favor as fans are reintroduced to some of their favorite elements and characters from the game series. 

Along with Schwartz and Elba as Sonic and Knuckles, respectively, the human cast will feature James Marsden (X-Men; Westworld), Tika Sumpter (Mixed-ishRide Along), Natasha Rothwell (Wonder Woman 1984Like a Boss), Adam Pally (Happy EndingsThe Mindy Project), Shemar Moore (Criminal MindsS.W.A.T.), Lee Majdoub (Sonic the Hedgehog; The 100), and 2x Golden Globe-winner Jim Carrey (The Truman ShowEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) as Dr. Robotnik. 

Meanwhile, Colleen O'Shaughnessey will reprise her role as Tails. 

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to race into theaters on April 8, 2022. 

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.
