Ben Schwartz Says Sonic 2 Will Be Much Bigger in Scope

In an interview with, Ben Schwartz said that Sonic 2 will be much bigger than Sonic 1 in terms of size. According to him, compared to the first one “this is a movie, this is a film, this is a movie-film.” Beyond praising his co-stars, Schwartz was pretty tight-lipped about everything else.

Sonic 1 was more or less a road trip comedy with a cartoon hedgehog. While this is pure speculation on my part, it sure does sound like Schwartz is saying this is going to be more akin to a summer blockbuster. While, again, this is pure speculation on my part meant to pad out this article, I’m not sure how else one can take “compared to the first one, this is a movie-film.” We’ll find out for sure when it debuts on April 8.

  1. If there’s a Master Emerald, there has to be Chaos Emeralds. If there’s Chaos Emeralds there HAS to be Super Sonic! If there’s Super Sonic, then they’re probably going to the one place that hasn’t been corrupted by capitalism!

    SPACE!!! We’re gonna see the Death Egg!!!
