Sonic is the lovable mascot who you just can’t keep down. Despite the ups and downs of the franchise, the Blue Blur is still incredibly popular, and now he’s a big movie star! The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie launched in 2020 to largely positive reviews and better opening weekend numbers than Detective Pikachu. Not bad! Now Sonic’s returning for a sequel in April, and this time he’s not alone. Fan-favorite fox Tails (voiced, as in the games, by Colleen O’Shaughnessey) is joining the fun, and so is an Idris Alba-voiced Knuckles! Paramount Pictures just dropped a new movie trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and you can catch it below before it airs during the Super Bowl this weekend.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 new movie trailer
“The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. ”
A super trailer for the Super Bowl
While the original movie was entertaining, it felt a little safe and generic. But ever since the first movie trailer dropped for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it’s been clear they’re leaning more into the source material this time. Aside from Tails and Knuckles, we can also see familiar scenes from the game like snowboarding, the Master Emerald, and even the Death Egg Robot. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 looks like it’s gonna be a pretty solid movie, and this Super Bowl trailer should be great for spreading the word. Will you be there when it hits theaters on April 8?
