It has now been confirmed that Colleen O’Shaughnessey will lend her voice to the iconic Sega character. While not as well as known as co-stars such as Ben Schwartz (Sonic), Idris Elba (Knuckles), and Jim Carey (Eggman), this news will delight die-hard Sonic the Hedgehog fans. O’Shaughnessey has voiced Tails in numerous games for the best part of a decade since Sonic Boom. Other voice credits include Final Fantasy VII Remake, Persona 5 Strikers, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Tails made a very brief appearance at the end of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie with a subsequent logo reveal also pointing to the character’s inclusion in a sequel. We also know that Knuckles will help fill out the cast though we’ve yet to see if Sonic 2 will go even deeper. Is there a chance we could see Bigs the Cat?

With the original movie having appeared on Netflix, there’s been a sudden burst of interest surrounding the sequel. As previously mentioned, a trailer will debut at The Game Awards. Here’s a look at the first poster.
