But as soon as they leave, Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) returns, this time with a new partner: Knuckles. The duo search for an emerald who has the power to build and destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own companion, Tails, and together they get together. embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.

According to the comic, Jason Momoa (“Game of Thrones”, “Aquaman”) was asked to voice Knuckles, who in the games becomes an ally of the swift blue hedgehog.
The character in the film will be true to his portrayal in the video game series, which means he’ll be a serious character, and Paramount believes Momoa is perfect for the role.
“For the first movie, we were just looking at the 1991 game and seeing where it all started to keep it simple. We really tried to understand Sonic and Robotnik well and create their rivalry. We tell the origin story a bit, making everyone fall in love with him as a character and ask for more. And so, now we can open up and bring in some of these other characters that fans know and love. And yes, I mean, no one is more excited than me to have this opportunity. Fowler told ComicBook.
Remember that Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) voices Sonic. The cast of the original film also includes Jim Carrey, Adam Pally, and Neal McDonough. Directed by Jeff Fowler.
First released in 1991, the game ‘Sonic’ has sold over 360 million copies in various formats.
