Super Mario Bros. Hits theaters on April 7, 2023
The wait is finally over. The first trailer for the Nintendo animated Super Mario Bros. The movie is out and now we all know what Chris Pratt’s Mario voice sounds like. In addition to Pratt’s lead role, the Mario film features a star-studded cast of Mushroom Kingdom characters including Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Jack Black as Bowser, and Keegan-Michael Key. Todd, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike, Variety reported.
The trailer begins with Bowser and his massive, flaming castle descending on the Ice Kingdom. Bowser’s army of Koopa Troopas led by Spike the Magikoopa faces off against the Ice Kingdom’s army of Blue Penguins as seen in the “Mario” games. However, the penguins’ snowballs are no match for Bowser. He burns down the icy castle and takes control of the “Mario” star power-up. “I finally figured it out, now, who’s going to stop me?” Bowser yells. Enter: everyone’s favorite Italian plumber. In a new scene, Mario flies through a green pipe into the Mushroom Kingdom, flying huge, red mushrooms until he flops on the ground. Mario’s theme song plays in the background as he wakes up to find Toad. “What is this place?” Mario exclaims out loud in a very prat-like voice. Toad leads Mario through a valley of giant mushrooms, with Princess Peach’s castle in the distance. After the credits roll, the trailer ends with a group of Dry Bones chasing Luigi through a spooky forest.
Pratt said earlier, sharing his experience voicing Mario Variety, “I worked very closely with the directors and tried a few things and I’m really proud and can’t wait for people to see and hear. It’s an animated voiceover story. It’s not a live-action movie. I’m not wearing a plumber’s suit. I’m doing the voice for an animated character and it’s Updated and unlike anything you’ve heard in the world of ‘Mario’ before.” A social media user reacted to the trailer, commenting that it was “so nostalgic”. “Taken back to when I played Mario with my brother. Can’t wait for the movie,” wrote another on Instagram. Super Mario Bros. Hits theaters on April 7, 2023.
