  • Keane Reeves will give the voice to Shadow the Hedgehog in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
  • Shadow, a rival to Sonic, has abilities like incredible speed and the power to manipulate time and space.
  • The Sonic movie series’ success continues following Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which grossed over $400 million.

In an exciting casting announcement, Keanu Reeves will voice Shadow the Hedgehog in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 3. This news is spreading rapidly among Sonic fans, as Reeves will bring his iconic charm to one of the franchise’s most intricate characters. The announcement was first made on The John Campea Show.

Shadow the Hedgehog, introduced in the 2001 game Sonic Adventure 2, is famous for his calm attitude and morally uncertain character. Often called the “Ultimate Lifeform,” Shadow is both a rival and a darker reflection of Sonic. He represents a more serious and thoughtful version of the speedy hero. Like Sonic, he has super speed and can use Chaos Emeralds to control time and space.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie series has been incredibly successful, combining humor, action, and heart. The first movie, released in 2020, overcame initial criticism of Sonic’s design to become the highest-grossing video game movie in the U.S. at that time. Its sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, released in 2022, continued the success by earning over $400 million worldwide and introducing beloved characters like Tails and Knuckles. This perfectly sets the stage for Shadow’s exciting debut. Shadow the Hedgehog’s introduction to the Sonic movie universe was cleverly hinted at the end of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with a post-credits scene showing Shadow ‘awakening,’ hinting at an exciting sequel.
