The voice of BB8 is now the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog

According to early reports, the film will be a live-action hybrid, focusing on Sonic's time as "a juvenile delinquent on the adventures in a pretty straight rural environment with a local policeman".

Yes, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is in production, and the cast is starting to trickle out online. Schwartz now lends his voice to Dewey in Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, and he will later be heard as the voice of Leonardo in the Nickelodeon animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is set to debut this September. That's quite the collection of blue cartoon characters Schwartz has. A little known fact about Schwartz is that he was also credited under "Vocal Consultants" in Star Wars: The Force Awakens' BB-8. 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.

Marsden will play a small-town cop from South Dakota who ends up going on a road trip to San Francisco with Sonic the Hedgehog as they race against the evil Dr. Robotnik (Carrey) to recover Sonic's rings.

What do you think about this casting choice for the voice of Sonic?

Schwartz will later be seen this summer in the comedy thriller Blue Iguana. When asked that very question, Carrey merely said, "Magic!" We're noticing a lot of blue with this one.

Jim Carrey has joined James Marsden of "Westworld" and "X-Men" in an adaptation of speedy SEGA video game franchise "Sonic the Hedgehog". Jeff Fowler will direct with Neal H. Moritz producing and Tim Miller and Toby Ascher executive producing.

Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled for a 15th November 2019 release in cinemas, telling the tale of Sonic's quest to defeat Doctor Robotnik, release innocent imprisoned animals and take back the Chaos Emeralds.
