The live-action/CG-hybrid film is being directed by Jeff Fowler (Gopher Broke) and sees Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) teaming up with James Marsden’s Tom Wachowski a cop in the small town of Green Hills, as they look to escape the government and thwart the plans of the evil Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).
Sonic the Hedgehog is set to race into cinemas on November 15th 2019.
