Sonic the Hedgehog 3 release date, cast and more
sonic the hedgehog 3 finally has a confirmed release date, but we have a bit of a wait on our hands for the speedy blue hedgehog’s return.
In early August 2022, Paramount confirmed that Part Three would hit theaters in December 2024, marking a slightly longer wait than fans are used to for Sonic adventures on the big screen.
Before Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released in theaters, Paramount and Sega confirmed that a third part was on the way, as well as a spin-off series centered on Knuckles (voiced by Idris Elba) that made its debut at the Sonic the Hedgehog 2. sequel.
We figured Sonic the Hedgehog 3 would bring back the same creative team (director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller) that made the first two movies such a hit, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
so what can we expect from sonic the hedgehog 3 and how does the sequel set it up? here is everything you need to know. (Warning: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 spoilers are ahead.)

Although we have the release date for the third movie, we still don’t know when the Knuckles spin-off TV show will arrive.
sonic the hedgehog 3 cast: who will return for sonic the hedgehog 3?
We haven’t received any official confirmation of the return of the sonic the hedgehog 3 cast yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some educated guesses.
ben schwartz will of course return as sonic and will likely be joined by colleen o’shaughnessey as tails and idris elba as knuckles.
jim carrey revealed his impending retirement from his long-running acting career following the release of sonic 2. he said he’s “pretty serious” about taking a break from the industry, and if that’s the case, we may not see robotnik in the third part.
sonic producers toby ascher and neal h moritz have said they “wouldn’t even try” to change the role. “Jim Carrey is always a member of the sonic family and he will always have a place in these movies and TV shows whenever he wants to be around,” Ascher explained.
“we love jim and he’s so special and what he does with robotnik is so amazing. we would love him as long as he wanted to be there with us.”
As for the other human characters, expect to see james marsden and tika sump return as sonic’s ‘parents’ tom and maddie wachowski, lee majdoub as robotnik’s long-suffering agent stone, and adam pally as deputy sheriff. of green hills, wade. whip.
we could see tom butler back as commander walters as the gun could play a bigger role in the third movie with the arrival of shadow, while natasha rothwell could return as maddie rachel and shemar moore’s older sister like her fiancé randall.
It is unclear who will voice Shadow the Hedgehog in the third film after Shadow’s arrival was teased in the credits scene. Kirk Thornton currently voices the character in the series, but we expect the role to be recast for Shadow’s big-screen debut.
Co-writer Pat Casey revealed that Shadow is “driven by anger and revenge” and that Sonic’s attempts to befriend Shadow won’t pan out as well as they did with Knuckles.
“sonic has never had to deal with someone as emotionally damaged as shadow… when he sees shadow, he says, ‘well, i’ll teach him about the power of friendship, like knuckles!’ but that’s not going to work in the shadows,” he told the green hill zone podcast.

Plot details for the third movie have not been confirmed yet, but it will definitely pick up from the credits scene preview.
This scene reverted to the climax scene when the gun searched for robotnik, but no signal could be found. However, Agent Stone (Lee Majdoub) is seen sneaking away, so there is no doubt that he helped his boss escape.
And then we get our first glimpse of Shadow the Hedgehog, who will surely be around to give Sonic trouble in Part 3. fowler didn’t go into more detail, but shared his excitement with comicbook.com.
“I’m hesitant to go into too much detail, just because it’s obviously still very early. I will say we’re getting ahead of a character that I’m really excited about. It’s very personal to me as a fan.” he pointed it out.
As for what the cast wants to see, O’shaughnessey told Digital Spy that, above all else, he hoped Tails would return: “I hope we get to see more and more of him.” , and see where your devices can take everyone.”
Carrey added: “I think [robotnik] should go into nanotech. I’d like to see their machines released into an aerosol that can be ingested into the human body and turn people into it.” We hope Carrey decides to stay to make this happen!
schwartz isn’t giving any specific plot details, but he did tease what we can expect from it in the playlist: “for [the sequel], we blew it up a lot, and for 3, it’s going to be bananas! It’s going to be crazy! I can’t wait.”
