Standard Sonic stuff then. 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".

Ben Schwartz is making a dash for Paramount Pictures' Sonic the Hedgehog. On top of that, Schwartz also provides the voice of the blue clad Dewey Duck on Disney XD's revamp of DuckTales. There's Dewy from the new Duck Tales, who is blue.

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!"

Trump going ahead with tariffs on $16B in Chinese imports

Perseids Meteor Shower Will Be One Of Year’s Best Sky Shows
Your meteor rates will be lower, but it's possible to see at least a few of the brightest meteors over the course of a few hours. The Perseids are so-called because the point from which they appear, known as the radiant, lies in the constellation of Perseus.

Schwartz is certainly an in-demand voice actor now, and perhaps not coincidentally, this facet of his career really took off after the actor lent his voice to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The news comes after the confirmation that Jim Carrey will indeed portray a live-action Dr. Eggman in the same film.

"Magic!" Carrey shouted. "Mixed with desperation". Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this perplexing movie as production continues.

Set for release on November 15, 2019, Sonic the Hedgehog will be the directorial debut of Jeff Fowler, who is directing from a script by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller (12 Deadly Days).
