Mark your calendars for April 26, as Paramount presents the thrilling adventures of everyone's favorite echidna in a brand new trailer that will leave your heart racing faster than Sonic himself.
Set between the second and third movies, Knuckles follows the remarkable journey of the mighty echidna, expertly portrayed by the incomparable Idris Elba. But this time, the spotlight isn't solely on Knuckles. Prepare to meet Wade, the bumbling police partner of Tom Wachowski, played by the hilarious Adam Pally. Together, they embark on a quest to transform Wade into a true warrior, leaving chaos and laughter in their wake.
As the trailer unfolds, we're introduced to the formidable antagonist, portrayed by none other than Rory McCann, known for his unforgettable role as the fearsome Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane in Game of Thrones. Brace yourselves for an epic clash of forces that will keep us on the edge of our seats.
But that's not all—prepare for a delightful surprise! The trailer unveils a fantastic reunion cameo, featuring two-thirds of the legendary comedy trio Human Giant. Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer make a hilarious appearance, seated at none other than an ESPN8 The Ocho desk. Ah, the wonders of serendipity! This delightful gag originated from the sidesplitting film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story back in 2004 and has now become a reality. The universe works in mysterious and hilarious ways, indeed.
While the absence of Jim Carrey and James Marsden may leave us longing for their presence, fear not, for Sonic and Tails make their dazzling appearance. Voiced by the talented film voice actors Ben Schwartz and Colleen O'Shaughnessey, respectively, these iconic characters are ready to captivate us once again with their electrifying energy.
The series, aptly titled Knuckles, will grace our screens with six thrilling episodes, each packed with action, humor, and the unmistakable charm of the Sonic universe. Set your coordinates for Paramount+ on April 26, as the adventure unfolds before our very eyes.
