Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will see another familiar face return as the film has revealed over on its Twitter account that Lee Majdoub will reprise his role as Agent Stone, a government agent and one of Dr. Robotnik’s main assistants/henchmen as he tried to capture Sonic.
Plot details aren’t known yet for the sequel, but Sonic The Hedgehog ended with a mid-credits scene showing Tails, Sonic’s faithful friend and partner from the video game series, arrive on Earth searching for him. A casting announcement a few weeks ago revealed another familiar face from the games as Idris Elba (The Suicide Squad) will voice Knuckles, Sonic’s one-time enemy turned ally and friend.
2020’s Sonic The Hedgehog went on to gross close to $320M worldwide, which came out during the early days of the pandemic. It was met with praise from critics and audiences alike.
I’m back for #SonicMovie2!!!
What… did you really think Dr. Robotnik could do this without me? (Don’t answer that).
Anyways, Happy #NationalCoffeeDay! #SteamedAustrianGoatMilkLatte https://t.co/4OBtdZnepu
