'Sonic 3' Finally Confirms Main Cast Members with a Few Exciting Surprises!

Remember how the live-action version of Sonic the Hedgehog had a rough start? The fans were horrified by the leaked design of the character, as Paramount initially opted for a more original design, which was panned by fans, so they decided to listen to them and simply keep the original design, and this turned out to be the best decision they made. The first movie was a massive hit, and so was the sequel, so it was no surprise that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was quickly announced, we can confirm that the movie is set for a December 20, 2024 theatrical release.

And while we’ve had several updates related to the movie, including Jim Carrey’s confirmed return as Dr. Robotnik, today is a big day as the main voice cast of the movie has finally been confirmed, all of that amidst flooding rumors that Keanu Reeves will be voicing Shadow, the film’s main villain.

And yes, we can confirm that these rumors indeed proved to be true, as it has been officially confirmed that the Matrix and Speed actor is going to portray Shadow the Hedgehog in the third Sonic movie. The main voice cast thus includes:

  • Ben Schwartz as Sonic
  • Keanu Reeves as Shadow
  • Idris Elba as Knuckles
  • Colleen O’Shaughnessey as Tails

As you can see, the old actors are reprising their roles, but Reeves’ involvement is especially great because, as we know, Sonic himself is a big fan of the actor due to his role in the movie Speed, as has been confirmed in the movie itself.

As for the other cast members, the live-action ones, we can confirm that the following names will appear in the movie:

  • James Marsden as Tom Wachowski
  • Tika Sumpter as Maddie Wachowski
  • Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik
  • Lee Majdoub as Agent Stone
  • Tom Butler as Commander Walters
  • Alyla Browne as Maria

Alongside them, Krysten Ritter, Sofia Pernas, Cristo Fern├índez, James Wolk, and Jorma Taccone will also be joining the movie, but in – as of the time of writing – undisclosed roles. Jeff Fowler is returning to direct the movie, which will continue from where the second movie left off.

And this is all that we have at this moment, but as you can see – this is absolutely great news. Not only have we confirmed that all the main actors from the previous movies will be back in the third film, but we also know that acting legend Keanu Reeves will be joining the cast of the movie, which makes us certain that Shadow will be portrayed in an amazing way. Of course, more updates are to come in the upcoming months, so be sure to keep following us for more.
