Colleen O’Shaughnessy, the long-time voice of Sonic the Hedgehog’s buddy tail, will speak out in the next Sonic theater sequel. She joins Ben Schwartz, who makes the voice of the hedgehog, and Idris Elba, who previously announced that he will make the voice of Knuckles the Ekidna. Tales was teased at the end of the first movie — and also the first teaser for the sequel, revealed last February.
Take the tail of my old companion to another adventure. I’m excited to announce that it’s the voice of Miles “Tails” Prower. # SonicMovie2!! I can’t wait to see him on the big screen.

Since 2014, it may seem natural for Oshonesse to speak out Tales in the movie (and in the post-credit stinger of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie), but many voice actors. Does not replay its role when a video game or cartoon is a big hit screen. For example, Chris Pratt was recently revealed to be Mario’s voice in the next Super Mario Bros. movie, but Charles Martinet, who has spoken Mario since the 1990s, plays only a small role. Hmm. It speaks to the bigger trend of animating famous celebrities rather than voice actors.
The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released on February 14, 2020, after being delayed due to a massive protest against Sonic’s design from the first trailer. Despite the first visceral reaction to the first trailer, the movie worked well with box office revenue and received almost positive reviews. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Speed up to the theater on April 8, 2022.
