Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is slated to open in theaters this week and we cannot wait to see Sonic, Tails, and Sonic’s new partner Knuckles in a brand new globe-trotting adventure. Our favorite voice actors return along with new additions including Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails. This sci-fi action-adventure comedy film is based on the popular Sega video game franchise and will debut in theaters this Friday, April 8, 2022. In honor of the theatrical release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, my daughter and I created these adorable Sonic the Hedgehog cupcakes. Check out the tutorial below, then download our free Sonic printables and activity sheets before you see the film in theaters.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
The most popular blue hedgehog returns for a next-level adventure. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 takes place several months after the defeat of Doctor Robotnik. Sonic is now working to help the public but is having very little success.
Dr. Robotnik returns with the help of Knuckles the Echidna, who is seeking to honor the legacy of his extinct tribe by finding the legendary Master Emerald which has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic eventually convinces Tails to help him find the Master Emerald before it falls into Doctor Robotnik’s scheming hands.
