Produced by Paramount Pictures in association with SEGA Sammy Group; an Original Film/ Marza Animation Planet/ Blur Studio production, the world’s favourite blue hedgehog is back for next-level adventure featuring the all-star cast of James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, Shemar Moore, Colleen O’Shaughnessey, Lee Majdoub with Idris Elba and Jim Carrey.

After settling in Green Hills, Sonic (Ben Schwartz) is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles (Idris Elba), in search of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilisations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails (Colleen O’Shaughnessey), and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.

It’s quite rare that movie adaptations of video games are really good. That’s not to say that the movies aren’t fun, but they are rarely really good! I was pleasantly surprised by the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie, in fact, it’s one of my son’s favourite movies, which means we have seen it a lot! So when the second movie came out I, and he, was really looking forward to seeing it.

The movie takes place a short while after the first one, Eggman is stuck on the Mushroom planet, Sonic has settled in to his life with the Donut Lord and Pretzel Lady, although at night he becomes Blue Justice. It’s not long before Eggman is back and this time he has company in the form of Knuckles, the last of the Echidna warriors. But this time Sonic has a new friend in the form of Tails – you may remember Tails appeared briefly at the end of the first movie. And so this new adventure begins.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a really fun movie with lots of action, adventure and laughs (watch out for the dance battle which is brilliant) and I would go so far as to say we enjoyed it even more than the first movie, and that’s saying something!

This movie is a must see and must own!

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 is available now on 4K UHD™ + Blu-ray™, Blu-ray and DVD from Paramount Pictures and is currently available to Download & Keep. In addition, fans can also purchase both the new movie and original hit film SONIC THE HEDGEHOG in a 2-Movie Collection on Digital, DVD, Blu-ray™ or 4K UHD™ + Blu-ray™.
