Knuckles the Echidna is ready to make its live-action debut in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 subsequent 12 months – and now we all know who’s going to be talking: none apart from Idris Elba (Cats and apparently different movies too). Elba does not appear to have been completely deterred from showing in hybrid live-action / animated movies with typically questionable CGI.
In accordance with a leaked synopsis of the movie, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will function Elba’s animated Echidna starring Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik staff up “in search of an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations”.
Elba will be a part of Ben Schwartz, who voiced Sonic within the first movie, and returning live-action actors James Marsden as Tom and Tika Sumpter as Maddie. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 can even function Miles “Tails” Prower (who appeared in a post-credit scene within the first movie), however it’s unclear whether or not the Flying Fox character can be voiced by Colleen O’Shaughnessey – who can even be Tails has voiced in different Sonic video games and media – or whether or not he can be recast with an actor with a better profile.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is slated to hit theaters on April 8, 2022.
