Listen to this article

The first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is officially here and it’s a complete brawl.

Unveiled at The Game Awards, the trailer featured the first look at Tails and Knuckles, two of Sonic’s animated friends in the live-action world.

Most of the cast from the first “Sonic” movie is returning, including Ben Schwartz as the voice of the speedy blue hedgehog. The sequel introduces his yellow, two-tailed, flying sidekick Miles “Tails” Prower, who’s portrayed by Sonic video game voice actor Colleen O’Shaughnessey. Knuckles, a red echidna with spiky knuckles who’s sometimes a friend and foe of Sonic in the games, is voiced by Idris Elba. The live-action cast includes Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivan “Eggman” Robotnik, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, Lee Majdoub and newcomer Shemar Moore.

In the sequel, Sonic is ready for more freedom after settling into Green Hill, and Tom (Marsden) and Maddie (Sumpter) agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. However, the evil Dr. Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with Tails and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.

From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, director Jeff Fowler is back for the sequel, as are screenwriters Pat Casey and Josh Miller, along with John Whittington. Producers include Neal H. Moritz, Toby Ascher, Toru Nakahara and Hitoshi Okuno.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to premiere on April 8, 2022.
