Ben Schwartz Will Voice Sonic the Hedgehog in the New Movie

Sonic is a snarky but entertaining little piece of shit, a character trope that Schwartz is synonymous with.

Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game.

Scwartz, who is now voicing Dewey Duck on Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, can next be seen in the Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish comedy Night School. Now it's time to move on to the lead, which has Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, Dewey in the new Ducktales show) voicing Sonic himself.

Envisioned as a synthesis of live-action and CGI, the film is to center around Sonic and his friends Tails the fox and Knuckles the echidna. Have you seen any of Schwartz's work?

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced.

The November 2019 movie will be directed by Jeff Fowler, who was involved on the animation side on "Where the Wild Things Are", and 2003's "Rockfish", an award-winning short from "Deadpool" director Tim Miller. The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film.

The movie is now filming in Canada, and one of the first images from the set emerged recently.
