Ben Schwartz may be rocking it as Dewey on the new Duck Tales, but he’s gearing up to voice another iconic character, Sonic the Hedgehog!
Paramount Pictures is working on bringing a Sonic the Hedgehog movie to life, and they’ve made an important step in making that film a reality. The title character finally has found its voice in Parks and Recreation actor Ben Schwartz.
Schwartz isn’t new to the voiceover game or voicing iconic, well-loved characters. Not only is he the voice of Dewey on the Duck Tales reboot, but he is also the voice of Leo in the Nickelodeon cartoon Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So he seems like an excellent choice to voice the famous, speedy hedgehog in this live-action hybrid.
But Schwartz isn’t the only talented individual to join the film’s cast. As Variety reports, he’ll be joined by actors Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Tika Sumpter and Deadpool director Tim Miller is set as executive producer. Jeff Fowler, who directed the Oscar-nominated animated short Gopher Broke, will be directing.
For now, additional details surrounding the film are sparse. However, a brief synopsis says that Sonic the Hedgehog will center around a cop in the rural town of Green Hills who helps Sonic escape from government officials out to capture him. Because Sonic doesn’t naturally blend into our everyday world, the movie is being called a live-action film that incorporates some CG elements, which will likely make the movie a fun one for kids and adults.
Sonic the Hedgehog and Ben Schwartz’s speediest performance ever is slated for a November 15, 2019 release.
