Preview:

  • The Paramount+ ‘Knuckles’ series has a new trailer.
  • The ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ spin-off features Idris Elba as the voice of the title character.
  • ‘Knuckles’ starts streaming on April 26th.

With the success of 2020’s ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and 2022 sequel ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ (a combined box office haul of $725.2 million so far) Paramount is naturally looking to keep the speedy cash train running.

A third ‘Sonic’ movie outing is due in theaters on December 20th (and recently confirmed the return of Jim Carrey as the scheming Dr. Robotnik), but for young fans of the franchise who don’t want to wait that long, there is another ‘Sonic’-based story on its way.

‘Knuckles’, a series for Paramount+ that focuses on the warrior echidna voiced by Idris Elba, has been in the works for a while and has a new trailer online, with a Super Bowl spot to follow at the weekend.

The new live-action event series follows Knuckles (Elba) on a hilarious and action-packed journey of self-discovery as he agrees to train Wade (Adam Pally) as his protégé and teach him the ways of the Echidna warrior.

We can also see that Knuckles will come under threat from a new set of baddies, who seem bent on stealing his powers.

‘Knuckles’ will take place between the events of the second and third ‘Sonic’ movies.
