The brand new Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers film is now streaming on Disney Plus; an formidable, live-action animated function starring a assassin’s row of comedic voice expertise and a fair larger smorgasbord of beloved characters from throughout tv, movie, many years, and franchises.

So not solely is having not simply Sonic — however Ugly Sonic — in Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers an awesome gag; however casting managed to attain Tim Robinson of Netflix’s widespread sketch comedy collection I Assume You Ought to Depart to voice the character.
