Expected for April 6 at the cinema, Sonic 2 unveils its first images! We find the famous blue hedgehog of video games in the company of new characters well known to fans of the franchise.
The first installment of Sonic, released in February 2020, was a great success, bringing in $ 320 million in worldwide revenue. In France, the blue hedgehog attracted 2.1 million spectators. A sequel was therefore started fairly quickly, still led by director Jeff Fowler.
On the first images of the feature film, we find our hero busy saving the widow and the orphan in the city of Green Hills. But by wanting to do too much, he endangers his life and those of others. He is then called to order by his friend Tom, played by James Marsden. “A day will come when we will need your powers. But you will not choose this moment, it will be imposed on you”, he said to him.
An old bald and mustache foe then appears: Dr. Robotnik, still played by the supercharged Jim Carrey. But this time, the bad guy is not alone! He introduces us to Knuckles, a character well known to fans of the video game, who brings Sonic down with great ease. How is the blue hedgehog going to do this time?
The two villains are in search of an emerald whose power would destroy all of humanity. To make sure the Emerald doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, Sonic teams up with Tails, a two-tailed fox popular with Sega game aficionados. Then begins a journey through the world, full of adventures.
Note that in VO, the supersonic hedgehog is voiced by Ben Schwartz. As for Knuckles, Idris Elba lends him his voice. In French, Malik Bentalha is back in the costume of Sonic against the legend Emmanuel Curtil, voice of Jim Carrey. As for Tails, it is Marie-Eugénie Maréchal who brings it to life vocally. She knows the character well since she has already voiced him many times in TV series and video games.
Sonic 2 is coming to theaters on April 6, 2022.
