“I was very excited to step back into Tom’s boots and revisit Green Hills again,” Marsden reveals. “The first film was a lot of fun but it was uncharted territory for all of us. We were still figuring out what story we were going to tell and what (Sonic) was going to look like.”
Discussing the character further Marsden shares, “To play Tom again is always a fun one. He’s one of the characters that’s more like I am in real life.”
Teasing what fans can expect from Tom and Sonic’s relationship this time around, Marsden comments, “This sort of buddy relationship that Tom had with Sonic the first time around has evolved into more of a father-son relationship in the second film, which is nice.”
