Are you ready for Paramount Studios’ Sonic The Hedgehog? I bet you are! This gem will probably get you more excited for it: Ben Schwartz is Sonic – Exclusive Interview ! I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts on the movie. But first, the Ben Schwartz Sonic Interview!
The Sonic Sparks
Remember, back in October during The Geekly Retreat, I had the pleasure and joy of watching the Sonic The Hedgehog revamped movie trailer! Not only did we watch it on the Paramount lot, we also enjoyed it before it was released! I was in heaven. If you read my Sonic trailer reaction you know I was on countdown mode for the movie. I have to tell you, I can’t wait to watch it again when it is in theaters everywhere on February 14th!
Ben Schwartz is Sonic – Exclusive Interview
Undoubtedly, there is nothing like talking to the cast about their work. As a super treat, I got to sit down with the talent that voices Sonic in the movie! This time around I got a video interview which gave me very little time for all the questions I usually have. Nevertheless it was a great interview. When I walked into the room Ben Schwartz was ready! His first word to me was a big welcoming “Hola”. From that moment in we were old buddies! He shared he hadn’t had a chance to enjoy Miami and was headed to the airport after the interviews. I bet he was tired. It didn’t show though. He was definitively full of energy and had plenty to say about the movie
Yes, my tongue got tied a couple of times, but if you know me, it happens frequently :-). Here is my tongue twisted and accented interview
So Much Sonic Fun!!
It was fantastic! Best answer ever: love hard how he incorporated Cool Moms in his answer!!! Woot!! But, time flies when you are having fun. Our time together was so short! Nevertheless, every minute was priceless, and I loved the way Ben Schwartz approached his answers. If I have more time I would have asked:
- There is no doubt there is a passionate fan base for this iconic character. How do you feel about Sonic’s redesign after the first trailer was released?
- The Trailer had so many view. We the fan base are more that ready for Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Is the pressure on about being the first of hopefully many Sonic movies?
- When you filmed, you had dots on your face and Sonic has some of your gestures. What else were you able to infuse from yourself into the character?
Anything else you would have asked? Do you have a favorite Ben Schwartz answer?
