The new trailer for Sonic 2 will be released today, but meanwhile the official twitter page has revealed a taste of it… set to “ Sonic speed “!
Although the duration is apparently the right one, the trailer scrolls away in a few seconds, and you will have to sharpen your eyes to capture the unedited scenes (which are actually fixed shots, as you can see in the slow-motion version released by a user: some are humorous images, like the old design with the prohibited symbol on the face). Anyway, the real trailer will be out later in the day, and we won’t fail to let you know.
As we know, the blue porcupine will have to contend not only with Doctor Ivo Robotnik ( Jim Carrey ), but also with the mighty Knuckles , who has the voice of Idris Elba in the original language. You can see the super-fast trailer below, but first I remind you that the Italian release is expected on April 7th .

Confirmed the returns of Ben Schwartz ( Sonic ), James Marsden ( Tom Wachowski ), Tika Sumpter ( Maddie Wachowski ), Jim Carrey ( Doctor Ivo Robotnik ) and Lee Majdoub ( Agent Stone ). They will be joined by Shemar Moore .
The sequel will introduce Tails and Knuckles . Colleen O’Shaughnessey , who plays Tails in the video games, voiced him in the mid-credits scene, but we don’t know if he’ll be back. Knuckles will be played by Idris Elba .
Screenplay, production and direction
The screenplay is again the work of Patrick Casey and Josh Miller . Also returning are Neal H. Mortiz, Toby Ascher and Toru Nakahara as producers, and Haijime Satomi, Haruki Satomi and Tim Miller as executive producers. Jeff Fowler is still directing .
The success of the first film
Sonic grossed $ 306 million worldwide against a budget of 95, and is the highest-grossing video game adaptation in North America. Even the digital release – anticipated for the Covid-19 emergency – went very well. The project was saved at the last: we remember that the first design of the blue hedgehog was heavily criticized by fans, butParamountlistened to them and changed it, making it more faithful to the original.
A video game icon
Sonic , created in 1991 by SEGA to compete with Nintendo’s Mario, has been the protagonist of numerous video games and five television series ( The Adventures of Sonic, Sonic, Sonic Underground, Sonic X, Sonic Boom ), three short films ( Sonic – Man of the Year, Sonic Christmast Blast, Sonic: Night of the Werehog ) and an OAV ( Sonic the Hedgehog , freely inspired by the game Sonic the Hedgehog CD ).
