Paramount announces Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD
For years there have been many video games turned into feature films, but more often than not they just don’t work. For every Resident Evil there is a Super Mario Bros., but as technology has gotten so much better more properties are being offered to make the leap. In 2020 the face of SEGA Sonic the Hedgehog hit the big screen for his first live action adventure. Now the gang is back for Sonic The Hedgehog 2 including James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey returning, alongside new additions Shemar Moore, Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O'Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.
Sonic The Hedgehog follows Sonic who is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero after settling in Green Hills,. 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.
In addition to the film this release offers up nearly an hour of bonus features, headlined by an all-new, exclusive animated short entitled “Sonic Drone Home” featuring Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles.
Grab your copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on digital and Paramount + on May 24th and then on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on August 9th from Paramount Home Entertainment.
