Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie trailer is packed with action that will please fans

Paramount unveils final trailer and nostalgic poster

We’re less than a month away from the premiere of Paramount Pictures’ fun sequel to sonic the hedgehogunsurprisingly titled sonic the hedgehog 2. To stun fans one last time before the big day, the studio has released a “final trailer” for the film, which hits the big screen on April 8.

The new trailer is full of fan-pleasing moments, as the returning Sonic is joined by the lovable scamp Tails in a battle against the villainous Dr. Robotnik and the heavy echidna, Knuckles. The preview features beloved sonic the hedgehog iconography, including Warp Rings, Chaos Emeralds, Tails’ biplane, Robotnik’s fun little flying dock, and even the legendary Death Egg Robot. Very exciting stuff for fans, almost exciting enough to make me forgive the utterly bizarre way the trailer chops up dialogue to the litter throughout the various sequences.

Movie trailers are an art form. The long lost one… But I digress…

sonic the hedgehog 2 sees Ben Schwartz return as Blue Blur, with James Marsden as his long-suffering pal Tom. Jim Carrey dons Dr. Robotnik’s twirling mustache, while Idris Elba dons Knuckles’ spiked gloves. In a handsome cast, longtime Tails voice actress Colleen O’Shaughnessey will voice the two-tailed fox, reprising her role from the video games.

Paramount Pictures also released a new poster for the moviewhich perfectly reproduces the famous cover of the original Sega Genesis version from 1992 sonic the hedgehog 2 – one of the most successful video games of all time. When you look at how these new marketing materials fully embrace the legacy of the original video game series, these trailers – those trailers – seem practically another lifetime ago.
