Sonic and Knuckles face off in Big Game ‘Sonic 2’ spot
Now that Paramount has figured out how to make Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) not look like a ghoul from a nightmarish realm where all of humanity’s darkest thoughts reside, they’ve gotten cocky with sonic the hedgehog 2. In addition to Sonic, the sequel also introduces his pal Tails (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and Knuckles (Idris Elba, of all people), as well as Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik and a ton of other special effects.
In the movie, Robotnik returns to torture Sonic again, this time with the help of Knuckles the Echidna. Sonic continues to receive help from his human pals Tom and Maddie, played by James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. A new teaser for the movie premieres this Super Bowl Sunday, but here’s a first look – featuring Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Robotnik and even Tails’ biplane from the old games:
