Yesterday, Netflix released the first proper teaser of its new Sonic Prime series. We got a glimpse of the blue blur and now in addition to this, the cast has been revealed.
For this particular series, there’ll be a brand new Sonic voice actor – revealed as the experienced Canadian VA Deven Mack. In a “thank you” video via social media, Mack also mentioned how the existing Sonic voice actors wouldn’t be going anywhere – so there’s no need to worry about that:
“If I could be serious for a minute, real talk, I’ll join the ranks of some amazing talents who have and will still be performing this legendary character in the video games and movies, so I like it to be perfectly clear that they ain’t going anywhere, and I wouldn’t have it any other way, they’ve been doing amazing work for years that I legit can’t wait to hear more of.”
The video game version of Sonic (aka Roger Craig Smith) also gave Mack his blessing via social media:
While we know who the rest of the cast is, at this stage, it’s not clear the characters they’ll be playing. It’s also worth noting that this is reportedly a full cast of Canadian VA due to the rules in place for local productions in this country. Some of these VAs have already voiced Sonic characters before as well.
So, there you have it – the new voice of Sonic in Sonic Prime. Give Deven Mack a warm welcome in the comments below.
