However, up until now, we've been kept in the dark about who will actually voice the speedy rodent.
Now, it's been revealed that Ben Schwartz - who currently voices Dewey on Disney's reboot of 'Duck Tales' and is best known for playing Jean-Ralphio on 'Parks and Recreation' - will take on the role.
The movie will also star Jim Carrey (as Dr. Robotnik), James Marsden and Tika Sumpter, with the plot seeing Sonic "on a quest to defeat Doctor Robotnik, a scientist who has imprisoned animals in robots and stolen magical Chaos Emeralds."
Schwartz is certainly happy about his casting...
I. LOVE. 90S. BLUE. ICONIC. CHARACTERS. I am beyond excited about this movie. It’s gonna be amazing. I have been training by running, wagging my finger and impatiently tapping my foot. GOTTA GO FAST! https://t.co/SOYqgnf3ym
