Voice actress Colleen O’Shaughnessey has confirmed that she will voice Miles “Tails” Prower in the upcoming sequel to the Sonic the Hedgehog film.
O’Shaughnessey announced on Twitter that she would be doing the voice and couldn’t wait for fans to see how the character will be in the film. Fans got a small tease at Tails at the end of the first film when he arrives through a ring portal in search of his best friend.
Best known for her role as Sora Takenouchi in the Digimon anime, O’Shaughnessey has been voicing Tails in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise since 2014 and was also the voice actor for Tail’s brief cameo in the first film.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will see the return of the original film’s main cast including Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as the voice of Sonic, James Marsden (Westworld) as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter (Ride Along) as Maddie Wachowski, and Jim Carrey (Kidding) as Sonic’s rival, Doctor Robotnik/Eggman along with Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) and Natasha Rothwell (Wonder Woman 1984).
It’s also been confirmed that the video game’s fan-favorite characters Miles “Tails” Prower and Knuckles the Echidna (voiced by Idris Elba) are now joining Sonic in the sequel.
Writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller, with Neal H. Mortiz, Toby Ascher, and Toru Nakahara are all returning to produce while Hajime Satomi, Haruki Satomi, and Tim Miller will return to executive produce. The sequel will arrive in theaters on April 8, 2022.
