Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will see the return of faves from the first movie outing, along with the arrival of some fuzzy new faces.

The big ones in the latter department are Sonic’s buddy Tails, and his sometimes friend, sometimes foe (well, in the bigger Sonic universe at least) Knuckles.

Idris Elba gives voice to Knuckles, and he features – along with other cast members including Jim Carrey and Sonic himself, Ben Schwartz – in the fun little behind-the-scenes featurette that we’ve handily linked just below.

Sonic the Hedeghog 2 is set to hit Aussie cinemas from March 31.
