No casting announcements have been made for Miles “Tails” Prower’s voice yet.
The sequel also brings back Jim Carrey as the antagonist, Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik. Carrey’s performance in the original film was seen as a highlight by fans and critics who saw the role as a return to form for the comedic actor. James Marsden and Tika Sumpter will also return as Tom and Maddie Wachowski. Jeff Fowler is back in the director’s chair with screenwriters Pat Casey and Josh Miller returning to write the script. Neal H. Moritz, Toby Ascher, Toru Nakahara and Takeshi Ito are producing.
“The great thing about Jim is that he just has so many ideas,” Fowler said of directing Carrey in an interview with GamesRadar last year. “We had so many discussions, even before filming, where he would pitch ideas, we talked about wardrobe and costumes and he just really wanted to play a part in every aspect of the character, which is great because it created such a collaborative experience. “
Fowler added, “Any scene he would pop up with ideas and pitches for dialogue adjustments or little ways to block the scene, or how to interact with the other actors. He really made every scene better. He was a joy to work with. . with. “
