We knew the following Hedgehog Sonic the film would include Knuckles, but we have to admit that even in our wildest dreams we didn’t think Idris Elba would utter a red echidna. Still, here we are with the famous actor who announced on Tuesday that he got the role.
All of this is another surprising development in one of Hollywood’s most unusual success stories of recent times. After a the first trailer to cause nightmares, we were almost certain first Hedgehog Sonic it would be a complete wreck of a train. Still, that turned out decent and was one of the last box office hits before the pandemic closed world cinemas. None of this means that the series will catch thunder in a bottle twice. After all, Elba has burned part of his goodwill, attributing his name to projects like Cats. However, at the very least, we are curious to see how this will turn out.
