Jim Carrey reveals the secrets behind Sonic the Hedgehog 2 — including the death metal moment we didn’t get to see.

The sequel, which also starred Idris Elba, Ben Schwartz and James Marsden, hit the big screen earlier this year, taking us on another adventure with the mini blue icon battling to save the world.

Ahead of the DVD release, the Hollywood veteran shed light on how he channeled his inner Dr Robotnik – revealing that a lot of metal music was played behind the scenes.

In a new video shared with Metro.co.ukThe 60-year-old was questioned on his favorite sets and places to work.

‘Panna Cave, for me, was a really fun set,’ he began. ‘It’s kind of reminiscent of Indiana Jones, and we do’ [pay] A comedic tribute to Indiana Jones.

“Also, what I was most uncomfortable with in the movie was hanging from those harnesses and the giant robot’s electric brain.

“He had a way of projecting these wild things behind me so that I could really understand what it would be like in an actual film.

‘While I was making my short tempo, my gun pantomime, we would play incredible, raucous death metal music. Pantera was big in those shots.

Giving us his best death metal impression, Jim insists: ‘I had a lot of fun on them.’

It certainly seems.

The first Sonic big screen adventure hit theaters in 2020, and became an instant hit with fans.

With the action-packed sequel storming theaters earlier this year, no one could stop the world’s most famous hedgehog.

The official synopsis for the flick reads: ‘Having settled in the Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. He is put to the test when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, the Knuckles, in search of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations.

‘Sonic teams up with his sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find Emerald before she falls into the wrong hands.’

Jim reprized his role as the film’s villain, and admitted that Dr Robotnik was ‘newer and better, more dastardly’ this time.

He said, ‘I think this time it is 3.0 times 1,000.’ ‘He not only comes back full of vengeance and a giant canyon-shaped chip on his shoulder, but he comes back buried in the mushroom planet.

‘I don’t know what he did there but something happened. He cut off all his hair because it was clearly the hair of a loser. He lost that battle, the initial battle. The mustache was just an outward expression of arrogance.

‘He comes back, not only as a gifted genius who wants to do evil, he comes back as a god in his mind.’

To be honest, we’re not hugely surprised…
