We've recently heard some rumblings that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel was going to start filming soon, and in an interview with Comicbook.com, Ben Schwartz himself confirmst hat to be true.
"I know that the sequel's happening, and they're gonna start filming soon, but because I'm the voice behind a speaker, I don't know any exact dates or anything like that. But I'm excited, I read the script and it's awesome."
Along with that, people have been wondering if Schwartz is going to step into the role of Sonic for the games as well, since Roger Craig Smith is no longer lending his talents to the character. According to Schwartz, no one has asked him to take on the job yet.
"Let's all, for a second, before we even say that, Roger Craig Smith is an absolute legend. Like, his VO work, Sonic being one of them, but his career is unbelievable for a VO artist. He is so talented.
I haven't thought about it, I haven't really thought about it. The first time that it's ever come up was because Roger seems to be stepping away, so, the first time ever, people are asking me I wonder, nobody's asked me, between you and I, I haven't really answered this question yet but nobody's come up to me and said anything so my assumption is that, who knows? But I wonder. I love the world of Sonic, and I love the fan base. The fan base has been so supportive and lovely. So, I don't know. I wonder, I wonder what would happen. But as of now, nobody's had a conversation with me about any of that. But I do just want to say, that you know like, of course that whole you know, Jaleel, Ryan, all those guys are incredible, but it was incredible to be a part of that legacy and then to hear that Roger is stepping down just to say again how amazing he was."
