A ‘Parks And Recreation’ Favorite Will Be The New 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

Standard Sonic stuff then. While Sonic will be created using computer animation, this is a live-action hybrid, and one character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise will not be given the digital treatment. Until today, the title role still had yet to be filled, but we now know who is playing the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in the upcoming film.

Parks and Recreation's own Ben Schwartz-who now plays Dewey on the DuckTales reboot and who will soon take on the role of Leonardo on Nickelodeon's new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-once Tweeted he wouldn't stop until he "voiced every iconic '90s cartoon character in blue!"

Some context for the above tweet, this isn't the first iconic "blue" character from the 90s that Schwartz has voiced.

Scwartz, who is now voicing Dewey Duck on Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, can next be seen in the Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish comedy Night School.

"Magic!" Carrey shouted. "Mixed with desperation".

Schwartz joins James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and the recently confirmed Jim Carrey, who's portraying Dr. Robotnik. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues. The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2019, so stay tuned for more. Meanwhile, the film will be produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller, along with Toby Ascher and Neal H. Moritz.
