The final trailer for Sonic 2 is now available in a standard version, for us mere mortals who are not as quick as the blue hedgehog.
This morning we showed you the one at ” Sonic speed ” , where there is no shortage of nice easter eggs.
Here is the official synopsis:
After settling in Green Hills, Sonic can’t wait to prove that he has what it takes to be a true hero.
The new challenge is not long in coming: Dr. Robotnik is back with a new ally, Knuckles, who will help him in the search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilization. With his new adventure partner Tails, Sonic embarks on a journey around the world to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
The devastating Knuckles has the voice of Idris Elba in the original, while Jim Carrey returns in the role of Doctor Ivo Robotnik . I remind you that the Italian release is expected on April 7th .
You can see the trailer below, also in dubbed version.
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 ).
