'Sonic 2' is "Incredible", "Huge" and "Epic" Says the Film's Star
With the follow-up to the surprise hit, Sonic The Hedgehog, hitting theaters on April 8th, fans are scouring the internet for anything they can find regarding this highly anticipated sequel.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, the film's star, Ben Schwartz, said:
"I can't tell you anything, but I will say, I've watched it many times and we've done a billion records, it is huge. It is epic. In terms of size, compared to the first one, this is a movie, this is a film, this is a movie-film. This is what I'll say, we've got Colleen O'Shaughnessey, who was from the video game and played Tails, she plays Tails, Idris Elba's Knuckles, they're both awesome in it and they look awesome. Jim Carrey is incredible in it. Incredible guest stars. Natasha Rothwell, who's a powerhouse of a comedian, Adam Pally, who worked with [The Afterparty co-star] Sam [Richardson] and who's worked with me before, is in it and incredibly funny in it."
Little is know about the finer details of the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 plot, with its iMDb synopsis simply saying the film is the, "Sequel to the 2020 live-action feature film 'Sonic the Hedgehog'." However, we have seen a full length trailer for the film which does shed some light on the film's plot with the story centered around the various characters searching for the Master Emerald.
The biggest additions to the film are the game's beloved characters, Knuckles (voiced by Idris Elba), and Tails (voiced by Colleen O'Shaughnessey), with Elba's character causing a viral explosion of memes and talk and the famous, "sexy knuckles" craze.
Showtimes and tickets are not yet on sale for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, but one thing's for sure, excitement is much hire for the sequel than it's predecessor.
