After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. But, no sooner are they gone, when 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 his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
The movie stars Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Miles “Tails” Prower, Ben Schwartz as the voice of the eponymous hedgehog, and James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, a police officer that befriends Sonic.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will hit theaters on April 8, 2022.
