Since then, Sonic has spawned endless video games, cartoons, and even the longest running comic book based on a video game.
In case you didn't know, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie (which will mix CGI with real life footage) is in the works.
Schwartz has some experience with voice acting, lending his distinct voice to the Ducktales reboot as Dewey Duck (the blue one) and the upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as Leonardo (the blue one). And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed.
Parks and Recreation's own Ben Schwartz-who now plays Dewey on the DuckTales reboot and who will soon take on the role of Leonardo on Nickelodeon's new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-once Tweeted he wouldn't stop until he "voiced every iconic '90s cartoon character in blue!" The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film. The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019. When asked that very question, Carrey merely said, "Magic!" Meanwhile, the film will be produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller, along with Toby Ascher and Neal H. Moritz.
The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar.
