Kid Cudi Joins ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Spinoff Series ‘Knuckles’
If you’ve wondered where rapper/producer Kid Cudi has been, well, he’s aboard Knuckles now.
The ensemble of Knuckles, which is the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog spinoff series from Paramount+ and SEGA, has expanded to include the ‘Man On The Moon’ rhymer, along with Julian Barratt, Ellie Taylor, and Edi Patterson. Idris Elba will return as the show’s iconic red Echidna.
In addition, Adam Pally is set to reprise Walt Whipple from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Tika Sumpter will play Maddie opposite Rory McCann as a guest appearance.
Knuckles accepts Wade’s offer to train him as his apprentice and instruct him in the ways of the Echidna warrior in the Knuckles spinoff, which is presently in production. Wade will be followed by Sonic’s nemesis on this action-packed voyage of self-discovery.
The third movie, scheduled for release on December 20, 2024, which includes Shadow the Hedgehog, will be the series’ prequel and will take place after the sequel movie.
