Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is Just Going For It!
I wasn’t much of a fan of the first live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. I suppose it was fine, but it also largely just nestled up against a bunch of “live action cartoon adaptation” tropes. Just wasn’t for me. But now the sequel is on the way, and it’s got Tails and Knuckles, so I’m in!
Knuckles is one of my all-time favorite video game characters, and he looks awesome in this trailer! Voiced by Idris Elba and getting one really amazing line, Knuckles is gonna steal the show, baby! This trailer looks like Sonic 2 is ready and willing to go whole-hog into the lore and the characters. I can get behind that sort of madness.
Tails is also cool.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arrives in theaters on April 8.
