Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps is a two-episode 2D cartoon animated series that will be released in summer 2021. The series serves as a promotion for Sonic Colors: Ultimate, as well as a celebration for the 30th anniversary for the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Set in the world of Sonic Colors, the story follows Sonic and Tails as they travel to Sweet Mountain with their new friend, a Jade Wisp, to free the captured Wisps from the evil Dr. Eggman and his henchrobots.
- Sonic the Hedgehog (voiced by Roger Craig Smith) - An anthropomorphic blue hedgehog with the ability to run at supersonic speeds. Learning of the Wisps' plight, he sets off to save these alien beings.
- Miles "Tails" Prower (voiced by Kate Higgins) - An anthropomorphic two-tailed fox and Sonic's genius sidekick. Armed with his Miles Electric translator, he aids Sonic in his mission.
- Dr. Eggman - An evil human scientist with an IQ of 300. Always scheming for world domination, he plans this time to harness the Wisps' power for his own nefarious purposes.
- Metal Sonic - The robotic duplicate and rival of Sonic, and Dr. Eggman's deadly enforcer.
- Orbot - A sphere-based robot and one of Eggman's aide robots.
- Cubot - A cube-based robot and one of Eggman's aide robots.
- Wisps - A alien race of squid-like creatures with immense powers. They are being hunted by Dr. Eggman for their powers.
- Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps will be the first 2D online animated medium to feature full voice acting (not counting Sonic's one line in Chao in Space).
- Kate Higgins voiced Tails in the series, despite the fact that his current voice actress at the time was Colleen O'Shaughnessey.
- This is the first time Kate Higgins voices Tails since Sonic Lost World as well as the first time she has voiced a Sonic character since Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where she voiced Wave the Swallow via recycled voice clips.
- This is the second instance of an English voice actor returning to voice a Sonic series character that they stopped voicing, the first being Roger Craig Smith.
- However, this is the first instance of this happening without the character gaining a new voice actor after the previous one had left.
