'Sonic The Hedgehog 2' Has Cast The Perfect Tails

'Sonic The Hedgehog 2' Has Cast The Perfect Tails

After the success of Sonic the Hedgehog, it’s no surprise that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is hot on its tails for release. In what now seems like ancient Internet history, Sonic’s original design disgusted a lot of fans with its strangely human features, but with a lot of work and delays, the film was a hit. So for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 the team obviously wanted to get certain aspects of the film right the first time around, and that means casting the perfect Tails.

Sonic of course is going to be played once again by Ben Schwartz, who played the blue blur in the original movie. Knuckle’s voice actor has been revealed as the one and only Idris Elba, a very talented actor in his own right too. But for Tails, SEGA seems to be keen on keeping him close to home, and the fox will be portrayed by Colleen O'Shaughnessey. 

Colleen O'Shaughnessey has been the voice of Tails in the games since 2014. She’s well acquainted with the character, after performing as him in Sonic Colors, Generations, Forces, Team Sonic Racing and even Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. If she isn’t qualified to portray the fox than no one is.

We shouldn’t sound so surprised that the voice actor is reprising this role but we can’t help it. Hollywood likes to replace classic voice actors all the time with big names so the billing looks flashy to audiences. The best example of this is the upcoming Mario film which has replaced the classic Mario voice actor Charles Martinet with A-lister Chris Pratt. Charles is even going to be in the film, just not as Mario it doesn’t seem. 

At least in the case of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 one of the original voice actors gets a chance to shine. It’s a nice acknowledgement of the games that make the films possible.
