Sonic the Hedgehog 2 soundtrack releases to audio cassette, first movie back on vinyl

Enjoy the Ride Records have just released a limited run of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 soundtrack audio cassette tapes, limited to 250 copies, featuring the score by Tom Holkenborg. The cassettes feature UV-printed shells, meaning you get promotional graphics from the movie printed right on the tape. Pretty slick! To sweeten the deal, the case evokes Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s video game cover art, a move that the 4K home video release also did with the steelbook. Also available is a repress of the first film’s soundtrack on vinyl, featuring a tri-color swirl. Head on over to Enjoy the Ride Records and order yours today!

FILA and Paramount Pictures release Ray Tracer Evo x Sonic 2 sneakers

There has been many Sonic the Hedgehog clothing collaborations over the past few years, but any time shoes are involved there is always that hope that the collaboration will result in Sonic’s shoes. More often than not, it does not. On top of that, sneaker collaborations are usually region locked and very expensive. HAVING SAID ALL THAT, we finally have a Sonic sneaker collaboration that is (1) emulating Sonic’s shoe design and (2) is AFFORDABLE. Thanks to FILA and Paramount Pictures, the Sonic movie sequel will see a unisex slip on sneaker in the Ray Tracer Evo style that evokes the shoe Sonic wears in the films. While Sonic is not really wearing these in the movie, they are very close and as mentioned AFFORDABLE. Priced at $110, you can knock off an additional 25% for a total of $82.50. That’s cheaper than most everyday sneakers!

So turn on that Honey app and check out how much you can knock off the price. At the moment there are America only (I know, I blasted region specific before) but hey, if you are abroad and have an American friend hit them up.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie trailer debuts at the Video Game Awards

The expected and anticipated Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie trailer debuted at the Video Game Awards, and it largely delivers! Sonic, Tails and Robotnik are all on display sporting refined designs thanks in large part to the movie not starting production with that wonky early design and Jim Carrey finally truly looking the part. What more, we get a look at Knuckles and hear more Emerald Hill Zone music. All-in-all, an impressive trailer. Though, the big question I have is will we return to Sonic’s world and explain that whole owl versus echidna thing? I guess we will find out on April 8, 2022.

Check out the poster for SEGA and Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2, plus trailer update

The Sonic movie twitter account dropped a poster for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and revealed that the first trailer debuts at the Game Awards, tomorrow December 9th at 8pm ET. The poster actually reveals quite a bit! Tails will be taking a co-starring role and the iconic red biplane will be making the jump to the live action movie series, though whether it is christened the Tornado remains the be seen.

Tails voice actor Colleen O’Shaughnessey returning to voice Tails in Sonic movie sequel

 

On top of a Sonic Frontiers reveal, the Sonic movie twitter account has been teasing that something, likely a trailer, is releasing soon. Shortly thereafter, Colleen O’Shaughnessey revealed that she will be returning to voice Tails in the movie. Colleen has voiced Tails in a variety of media, including Sonic Generations, Mario & Sonic 2016 and the Sonic Boom franchise.

When the Sonic movie was announced, it appeared to be a solo endeavor for the blue blur. That is, until WE REVEALED that Tails was returning in a mid-credits scene. Colleen returned to voice the more realistic CG Tails, and with the reveal of the movie sequel Tails took a larger role working his way into the logo. Some fans speculated that a larger role meant Tails would be recast, but thankfully Colleen is back. We can’t wait to see and hear more of Tails, and we are likely to be seeing something real soon!

SEGA in the Media: The Late Show introduces us to Sexy Knuckles the Echidna

Last night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert featured a segment on Idris Elba’s upcoming role as Knuckles in the second Sonic movie. Colbert talked about how Elba spoke about how he doesn’t think his take on Knuckles will be sexy, given Elba himself has previously been named “Sexiest Man Alive”, which led to Colbert making his own Sexy Knuckles trailer. The results are… well, watch the above.

Knock Knock, it’s Idris Elba as Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog 2

That’s a headline I never thought I’d type. But yes, fresh off The Suicide Squad as Bloodsport comes confirmation from the man himself that Idris Elba will voice Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. While filming has already wrapped, post production is underway and thus the voicing of the CG characters. For some time it was speculated Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would take the role, but some fans thought that was too big a “get” for the film. But Idris Elba is, arguably, just as big a get for Paramount and SEGA.
