Sonic Movie 2 Japanese Dub Trailer and Voice Actors Revealed

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie Japanese dub trailer - Sonic and Tails

The Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie will have a Japanese dub when it appears in Japan as Sonic the Movie / Sonic VS Knuckles. Paramount Pictures has published a new trailer with Japanese voiceovers on its Japanese YouTube channel. It also announced the list of Japanese voice actors for the main characters in the film.

Paramount Pictures had previously confirmed that Taishi Nakagawa and Koichi Yamadera will return to voice Sonic and Dr. Ivo Robotnik, respectively. The Japanese voice actors for Tom and Maddie Wachowski will also reprise their roles. Tails will have a familiar voice from Ryo Hirohashi, the voice actress who has been voicing the character since the 2003 anime Sonic X.

Knuckles the Echidna, who did not appear in the first movie, will have a different voice in this movie. Nobutoshi Canna would usually provide voices for the character in most Japanese Sonic games and anime shows. However, the new film will instead have Subaru Kimura voicing the echidna.

Here’s the list of Japanese dub voice actors for the main characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog: Taishi Nakagawa
  • Miles “Tails” Prower: Ryo Hirohashi
  • Knuckles the Echidna: Subaru Kimura
  • Dr. Ivo Robotnik (Jim Carrey): Koichi Yamadera
  • Tom Wachowski (James Marsden): Yuichi Nakamura
  • Maddie Wachowski (Tika Sumpter): Marina Inoue

And here’s the official Japanese dub trailer for the movie, which will be known in Japan as Sonic the Movie / Sonic VS Knuckles:
