Sonic is speeding into another streaming service. After debuting on Paramount+ in May, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is now available to stream for free on Amazon Prime Video for those with an Amazon Prime membership.
Ben Schwartz reprises his voice role as Sonic, while Idris Elba joins as the voice of Knuckles, a self-professed “echidna warrior” with a quill to pick with the bright blue hedgehog. Knuckles joins forces with Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) in search of the Master Emerald, a powerful gemstone that can control the universe. Colleen O’Shaughnessey is the voice of Tails, and James Marsden and Tika Sumpter return as Sonic’s best human friends Tom and Madie Wachowski.
Paramount earlier this week announced that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will be released in theaters in December 2024.
