Sonic, he’s number one! The new Sonic The Hedgehog 2 trailer has finally dropped and we’re ready to see everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog return to the screen. After the first Sonic The Hedgehog live-action film was released last year, we already got our hopes up for the sequel. They have been answered with a thrilling trailer that brings back all our childhood memories. Just a few things we have to look forward to include Tails’ arrival, Dr. Robotnik sporting his iconic mustache, Chaos Emeralds entering the game, and Knuckles!
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.
Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, and James Marsden return to star in the sequel, ready to renew their vibrant on-screen chemistry. New additions to the team will be Shemar Moore, Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails. Don’t mind us, we’ll just be playing every Sonic game ever made until Sonic The Hedgehog 2 comes out.
Sonic will be returning to theater screens everywhere on April 8th, 2022.
Watch the official Sonic The Hedgehog 2 trailer
To keep you hyped until Sonic races back onto our screens, listen to a few of our favorite Sonic OSTs!
‘A Ghost’s Pumpkin Soup’ (Pumpkin Hill) From Sonic Adventure 2
You already know we need to start things off here. Knuckles is one of our favorite Sonic characters and this track from his level in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle remains one of the best OSTs we’ve ever heard.
‘Sonic Heroes’ From Sonic Heroes
Let’s keep the good vibes going with this sunshine of a main theme. Performed by Crush 40, a recurring group on Sonic OSTs.
‘Can You Feel The Sunshine’ From Sonic R
Is Sonic R an underrated Sonic game? Possibly. Is this song guaranteed to “brighten up your day?” Definitely.
‘Green Hill Zone’ From Sonic The Hedgehog
We’ll end it here with this iconic and timeless instrumental bop. The original composer, Masato Nakamura, and his band Dreams Come True released a new version of this song with Japanese lyrics in September 2021. Check out their official video here!
