Are you ready for an epic entertainment lineup? The latest Super Bowl has just dropped a treasure trove of trailers for some of the most anticipated movies and series set to entertain us in the near future. Notable among them are ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ and ‘Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’. But let’s not forget about the exciting addition to the small screen with the announcement of ‘Knuckles’, a spin-off series from the ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ live-action films. Slated for release at the end of April 2024, this six-episode miniseries promises to be a thrilling adventure.
Fans got a sneak peek at ‘Knuckles’ that featured a new, entertaining scene not shown in the first trailer. One highlight from the latest teaser was a humorous exchange between Knuckles and Wade, where Wade throws a quirky nickname at Knuckles, dubbing him “Knuckolas Cage”. This playful nod to actor Nicolas Cage and his iconic 90s action movies adds some light-hearted humor to the series. For those who enjoyed Knuckles’ appearance in ‘Sonic 2 The Movie’, you’ll be happy to know that this miniseries serves as a bridge between that film and the upcoming third installment, expected in December 2024.
When the miniseries hits the screens, prepare to see Knuckles in an unusual role—training Wade Whipple, the Deputy Sheriff of Green Hills, in the art of echidna warfare. Actor Idris Elba, who lent his voice to Knuckles in the second film, returns to give life to the character once more. Fan favorites such as Adam Pally as Wade Whipple, Edi Patterson as Wanda Whipple, Julian Barratt as Jack Sinclair, Scott Mescudi as Agent Mason, and Ellie Taylor as Agent Willoughby will also be back, ensuring a continuity that fans will appreciate.
The series won’t be short on talent, with Ben Schwartz and Colleen O’Shaughnessey reprising their roles as the voices of Sonic and Tails, and Tika Sumpter returning as Maddie. Exciting new additions to the cast, including Rory McCann, Cary Elwes, Stockard Channing, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, and Christopher Lloyd as the voice of Pachacamac, round out an impressive line-up, amping up the anticipation for this miniseries.
A new poster for this spin-off has also been unveiled, capturing the essence of the adventure we’re about to embark on with these beloved characters. The countdown has begun for ‘Knuckles’, which is set to premiere on Paramount+ on April 27, 2024. Get ready to join Knuckles and the gang for an action-packed journey that’s sure to be a hit among fans and newcomers alike!
