Ben Schwartz Voicing Sonic the Hedgehog In the Forthcoming Film

Ben Schwartz Voicing Sonic the Hedgehog In the Forthcoming Film”

It's been announced that actor and comedian Ben Schwartz, perhaps best known for his work on Parks and Recreation as the obnoxious Jean-Realphio, will be playing the voice of Sonic in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Sonic is a cool hedgehog with plenty of attitude. Standard Sonic stuff then. According to Variety, Schwartz has signed on to voice Sonic the Hedgehog in the upcoming film of the same name. There's Dewy from the new Duck Tales, who is blue. While Sonic will be created using computer animation, this is a live-action hybrid, and one character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise will not be given the digital treatment. Whether or not it lives up to the hype remains to be seen, but it's nice to see that Schwartz seems genuinely confident about the project.

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced. The film is set to be directed by Jeff Fowler, who previously worked on the Oscar-nominated Gopher Broke. Deadpool 1 director Tim Miller is producing. The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film. The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2019, so stay tuned for more.
