Sonic is speeding back to TV screens this week. Fans can catch up on the lightning-fast (and super cute) extraterrestrial and his bushy-two-tailed pal Tails when Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is available to stream starting tomorrow on Paramount +.
Ben Schwartz reprises his voice role as Sonic, while Idris Elba joins as the voice of Knuckles, a self-professed “echidna warrior” with a quill to pick with the bright blue hedgehog. Knuckles joins forces with Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) in search of the Master Emerald, a powerful gemstone that can control the universe. Colleen O’Shaughnessey is the voice of Tails, and James Marsden and Tika Sumpter return as Sonic’s best human friends Tom and Madie Wachowski.
