Are you excited for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie?

American actor Ben Schwartz, best known for portraying Jean-Ralphio Saperstein in the sitcom Parks and Recreation, will be voicing Sonic in Paramount's upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced. It'll probably be just a matter of time before we learn about who will be joining Schwartz to voice key characters in the film, such as Sonic's buddies Tails the Fox and Knuckles the Echidna, who are likely to show up at some point considering they're such fan favorites and all. If he can put on a convincing Southern drawl, maybe he'll voice Huckleberry Hound for Hanna-Barbera. Schwartz, who has been a friend of J.J. Abrams for awhile now, helped bring BB-8 to life by writing real dialogue for the ball droid and performing lines that would later be used to inspired the beeps and other sounds used as the droid's manner of speaking in the movie.

When asked about how Carrey will recreate Dr. Robotnik, the actor and comedian shouted his solution to the TCA crowd. He joins a cast that includes James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and Jim Carrey. When asked that very question, Carrey merely said, "Magic!"

The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar. It's now set to premiere on November 15, 2019.
