Old school Sonic fans are pretty excited for the arrival of Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Here’s a little bit more of him.

The very determined echidna is given voice by Idris Elba, and in the clip below he’s out for a spot of skiing with Sonic.

The positive reaction to Knuckles hitting the Sonic Cinematic Universe (come on, it’s inevitable) has already led to the announcement of a Knuckles live action/animation spinoff series, also featuring Idris Elba as the voice of the guardian of the Master Emerald. The series should appear sometime in 2023.

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