Sonic the Hedgehog is not just a popular video game series. With two movies out – and a third on the way – Sonic is bigger than ever! And along with Sonic comes his friends, which include Tails and Knuckles. Now, Knuckles – voiced by Idris Elba – is getting his own six-episode series on Paramount+.
The trailer shows the Echidna choosing to remain on Earth with his friends, Sonic and Tails, to protect the planet. Life in the slow lane is a bit hard for Knuckles, who aches to show his inner warrior. But when a man who wants to steal his powers to fuel his tech sends his goons after him, the race is on to see how Knuckles will rise as the hero of his own series.
First introduced in 1994’s “Sonic the Hedgehog 3,” Knuckles hails from Angel Island, serving as the fierce guardian of the Master Emerald. This powerful gem stabilizes the chaotic energy of the Chaos Emeralds. As the release date approaches, fans eagerly anticipate how this series will expand the Sonic universe and deepen the lore surrounding one of its most iconic characters.
