Jim Carrey gives out ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ details

Sonic is a cool hedgehog with plenty of attitude. Now it's time to move on to the lead, which has Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, Dewey in the new Ducktales show) voicing Sonic himself.

Paramount Pictures' live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is moving fast and loose - in more ways than one! There's Dewy from the new Duck Tales, who is blue.

While Carrey's past form in playing outrageous characters (like The Grinch, for instance) is well-documented, Schwartz has prior experience in voice-acting, now lending his larynx to Dewey Duck in the rebooted Duck Tales series on the Disney Channel and confirmed as Leonardo in the Nickelodeon's "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". That's quite the collection of blue cartoon characters Schwartz has. Schwartz, who has been a friend of J.J. Abrams for awhile now, helped bring BB-8 to life by writing real dialogue for the ball droid and performing lines that would later be used to inspired the beeps and other sounds used as the droid's manner of speaking in the movie. Have you seen any of Schwartz's work?

The actor confirmed that he would play longtime Sonic nemesis Doctor Robotnik, and that he was involved in a live-action capacity, according to a recent report.

"Magic!" Carrey shouted. "Mixed with desperation". The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019.

The Sonic The Hedgehog movie is also set to feature James Marsden, Tika Sumpter and Jim Carrey, who is rumored to be playing Robotnik. Deadpool director Tim Miller is also serving as executive producer with Toby Ascher.
