It's hard to believe, but the live-action/CGI Sonic the Hedgehog movie is well on its way to becoming a reality. And now he's getting his own movie, and the actor who will voice the speedy, blue hero has been revealed. 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". Schwartz now lends his voice to Dewey in Disney Channel's Duck Tales reboot, and he will later be heard as the voice of Leonardo in the Nickelodeon animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is set to debut this September.
You might be wondering why Ben Schwartz mentions his love for blue, iconic characters when confirming Variety's story, and that's because he's also voicing Leonardo on the upcoming Nickelodeon animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which we learned a lot more about at San Diego Comic-Con last month).
Playing opposite Schwartz will be Jim Carrey as Dr. Eggman. Have you seen any of Schwartz's work?

Gates is also admitting to carrying out a vast scheme to hide millions of dollars in foreign bank accounts on Manafort's behalf. That's what the former Trump campaign chairman's "right-hand man", Rick Gates, told jurors in Manafort's financial fraud trial.
Previously announced cast members include WestWorld and Hop's James Marsden along with Tika Sumpter who has featured in the likes of Gossip Girl and Law & Order. "It will be live-action", Carrey said, regarding the movie.
Jeff Fowler (2005's Oscar-nominated Gopher Broke short) is directing Sonic the Hedgehog, with Neal H. Moritz producing and Deadpool director Tim Miller serving as executive producer with Toby Ascher. The film will dash into theaters on November 15, 2019.
