Ben Schwartz Set To Voice Paramount's 'Sonic The Hedgehog'

Ben Schwartz Voicing Sonic the Hedgehog In the Forthcoming Film

The voice of BB8 is now the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog

Ben Schwartz is making a dash for Paramount Pictures' Sonic the Hedgehog. Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game. 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.

In case you didn't know, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie (which will mix CGI with real life footage) is in the works. The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film.

Considering the unique look of Robotnik, as you can see above, people have been curious how they're going to pull off this character in the movie.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho thinks finishing second last season was one of his greatest achievements as a manager. Whether they can do it across a 38-game season, however, is the big question.


"Magic!" Carrey shouted. "Mixed with desperation". We're noticing a lot of blue with this one. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. Jeff Fowler, who received an Oscar nomination for his 2005 animated short Gopher Broke, is directing, with Deadpool director Tim Miller serving as executive producing alongside Toby Ascher.

Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled for a 15th November 2019 release in cinemas, telling the tale of Sonic's quest to defeat Doctor Robotnik, release innocent imprisoned animals and take back the Chaos Emeralds.
