The Story of Sonic Colors and the Wisps Continues in New Two-Part Animated Short

The latest Sonic animated short, “Rise of the Wisps,” will center around the world of Sonic Colors! This short will be the first of some new shorts that will feature full voice acting from the Sonic game cast. This two-part Sonic Colors short will see Sonic and Tails traveling to Sweet Mountain, where they will meet a new wisp, the “Jade Ghost wisp,” which will help them free wisps that have been captured by Dr. Eggman.

The first part of this short will debut this summer. Check out the trailer below!

Colleen O’Shaughnessey Isn’t Done With Tails Yet

Earlier today on Twitter, Tails voice actor Collen O’Shaugnessey was showing off her new flocked Tails Funko Pop that she got from Target, when she broke some surprising news in the comments.

As we reported earlier this month, Colleen is one of several voice actors not returning to their previous roles in the upcoming Sonic Netflix show, Sonic Prime. However, as one fan mentioned how much they are going to miss her, Colleen surprised everyone with the following…

So what does this mean for Colleen in the role of Tails? Well, she’s completely out of Sonic Prime. “Still not Canadian, so still not doing prime” she replied to one fan. Whether she’ll be back for the Sonic 2 movie, or if she’s returning to the games, she definitely won’t be leaving Tails and the Sonic franchise behind just yet.

Both Sonic Prime and the Sonic 2 movie will be out next year.

Colleen O’Shaughnessey Not Voicing Tails in Sonic Prime

Colleen O’Shaughnessey, Tails’ voice actress for the past seven years, has confirmed on Twitter that she will not be reprising her role in the upcoming Netflix series, Sonic Prime.

Unlike Roger Craig Smith, this does not yet appear to mark a permanent departure from the role, and it appears that Sonic Prime may instead either have a separate voice cast, or only share some cast members from the games. What makes O’Shaughnessey‘s lack of involvement especially surprising is that she did actually voice Tails in last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Mike Pollock, the voice of Eggman, does appear to at least be hinting that he is a part of the production. Though he could also just be trolling us for his own amusement:

Turnover in the Sonic voice acting cast is nothing new. Back in 2019, several characters had their voices recast, the most notable of them being Knuckles. The first major voice actor overhaul came in 2005, when every voice actor from the games was replaced with the cast from the recently released 4kids dub of Sonic X. That cast was in turn replaced five years later in 2010.

No doubt story editors on the cartoon, Greg Hahn and Alan Denton, miss the animation grind more than most though – and to pep themselves (and the world) up a little bit they’ve collaborated with ‘Sonic’ voice actor talent to perform a readthrough of one of their favourite unpublished pilot scripts.
