‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ Trailer Introduces Idris Elba As Knuckles

Gotta go fast! Tonight at The Game Awards, Paramount debuted the first Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer! In it, we see the return of Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, freed from the Mushroom Planet where Sonic left him at the end of the last movie. Interestingly, Robotnik looks a lot more like his video game counterpart, too.

We also get our first chance to hear Idris Elba as Knuckles the Echida, who has joined Dr. Robotnik’s side, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Miles “Tails” Prower. O’Shaughnessey has been voicing Tails for years, while Ben Schwartz is back as Sonic. Much of the human cast returns, including James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Adam Pally, Natasha Rothwell, and new addition Shemar Moore.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is once again directed by Jeff Fowler and opens April 8th 2022.
