Sonic: The Hedgehog 2 First Trailer Look and everything you need to know
Gotta go fast!
Gotta go fast! Sonic the Hedgehog is coming back to the big screen — and this time, he’s bringing some familiar faces. In the first trailer for the sequel, revealed at the 2021 Game Awards, Sonic faces off against Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) again, though this time the evil scientist looks more like his source material. But more importantly, Tails and Knuckles make their first appearances — and we get to hear Idris Elba’s silky smooth voice!

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 cast: Who's coming back for Sonic the Hedgehog 2?
Ben Schwartz is back as the voice of Sonic and he's joined by James Marsden as Tom (aka the Donut Lord) and Tika Sumpter as Maddie, as well as Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik.
The credits scene in the first movie had Colleen O'Shaughnessey voice Tails, as she currently does in the wider Sonic world. In December 2021, it was confirmed that she is voicing the character in the sequel too, which is the right call. "Taking my old pal Tails for another adventure. Thrilled to announce I'm the voice of Miles "Tails" Prower in #SonicMovie2!,"
The excellent casting doesn't end there though as Knuckles will be voiced by none other than Idris Elba. It had been previously reported that the sequel
would bring in Knuckles after co-writer Pat Casey had teased that the sequel could feature Knuckles after the Echidna tribe were seen at the start of the first movie. "Knuckles is an Echidna so I would guess they're related in some way, but what exactly is that relationship is… We'll have to see how things develop. But the Echidna tribe was definitely not chosen at random," he told Fandom.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set for release on April 8, 2022.
