Thing promised thing due. Paramount had indicated that it intended to release the first trailer for Sonic 2, the Film during the Game Awards 2021. And that’s what the American studio did. In addition to revealing the first images of the film and showing some of its new protagonists, this video answers a question that the French public has been asking since the announcement of this sequel. And this response may not make everyone happy.
The first trailer for Sonic 2, the Movie has therefore just been put online. In this sequel, Sonic is comfortably settled in Green Hills with Tom and Maddie. He takes advantage of his free time, and his powers, to play the superheroes.
The return of Dr. Robotnik, this time accompanied by the dark Knuckles, however, will turn everything upside down. Especially since they are looking for a mysterious emerald with immense power. Fortunately for him, Sonic will this time benefit from the help of Tails to thwart the plans of the mad scientist.
A trailer that multiplies the references
As the title of this news reveals, Paramount France has therefore made the contested choice to entrust the role of Sonic again to the French actor Malik Bentalha. For those who would not have followed everything, the performance in the latter in Sonic, the Film is far from being unanimous.
And for the French version of Sonic 2, the Film as a whole, Paramount has chosen to reproduce the American pattern. On the one hand, the stunt casting for the title role. On the other, a historic voice for the character of Tails. As we indicated to you yesterday, Tails will be voiced in English by Colleen O’Shaughnessey. The latter has been lending her voice to the two-tailed fox since 2014.
A VF a priori unequal for Sonic 2, the Film
And in French, the dubbing of Tails will be provided by Marie-Eugénie Maréchal. The latter has been lending her voice to Sonic’s companion since 2003 and the Sonic X animated series. More recently, she could be heard playing Tails in Sonic Colors Ultimate. Unsurprisingly, the brilliant Emmanuel Curtil is back in the role of Dr Robotnik.
For those to whom the acting of Malik Bentalha gives buttons, the video is also available in original version. To simplify your task, you can find this video in the original version below:
As stated previously, Sonic 2, the Film will land in French cinemas on April 6, 2022. If logic is followed, the film should show itself again by then.
