A new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer arrives showing Dr. Eggman attacking the titular hero with a giant robot in the upcoming movie sequel. Jim Carrey is back as Doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik, the mad scientist and Sonic’s archenemy who was trapped on the mushroom planet at the end of the first film. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 sees Eggman escape the planet with the help of Knuckles the Echidna and return to Earth to get revenge on the blue speedster and discover the location of the powerful Master Emerald.
Alongside Carrey, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 sees the returns of Ben Schwartz as the titular hero, James Marsden and Tika Sumpter as his human friends Tom and Maddie Wachowski, Natasha Rothwell, Lee Madjoub, Adam Pally and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Miles “Tails” Prower after her post-credits cameo in the first film. The sequel will also mark the franchise introductions of Idris Elba as Knuckles and Criminal Minds and SWAT alum Shemar Moore in an undisclosed role. With just over a month remaining until the film’s release, Paramount is looking to keep anticipation high for Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
As part of the Super Bowl, Paramount Pictures unveiled a new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer. Flipping a coin between heads and Tails akin to the football game’s opening coin toss, the video sees the coin land on Eggman’s head and features footage focused on the iconic villain, including new looks at Eggman’s giant robot.

The new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer serves as a highlight of the outrageous fun to come from Carrey’s Eggman in the upcoming sequel. The first Sonic the Hedgehog film proved to be a surprise critical success with many specifically highlighting Carrey’s performance as a return to the manic energy he became famous for in his ’90s movies and the latest teaser looks to keep that going. Between his further embracing of his villainous persona and his comedic consumption of popcorn while Sonic and Knuckles fight, Carrey looks to be equally as committed as his first go-round.
One of the more interesting elements of the new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 trailer is the reveal of Eggman’s new giant robot attacking Sonic and Tails. While the original film touched upon some elements from Sega’s video game franchise, the sequel looks to be hewing closer to directly adapting the games, namely with the introduction of Knuckles and the hunt for the Master Emerald. The wait for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is nearly over as the film is set to hit theaters on April 8.
