Nintendo unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” an animated adventure that features some seriously meme-worthy casting. The film stars Chris Pratt as Mario and Jack Black as Bowser, the fans were thrilled to see just how zany the film could be. Over 600,000 people watched the premier through Nintendo’s YouTube Channel, and the trailer was streamed simultaneously on the eve of New York Comic Con.
Although the trailer was quite too short, it was not disappointing. We finally heard Chris Pratt’s voice pop from Mario’s animated character and it was delightfully strange. In addition, Keegan-Michael key is already a swaggering Toad in the video, and is admonishing Mario who mistakenly believes he’s the mushroom. What’s a Toad that has an attitude? Oh yeah!
The trailer begins with Bowser returning to his bullshit and attempting to steal our stars , just like you’re in “Mario party.” Koopa Troopas- which are essentially soldiers True to their name are following Bowser to a castle covered in snow and he demands they let the gates open. Penguins try throwing snowballs at him in order to defend their territory However, their efforts fail.
So so far, Black seems to have been fully committed to his character of the scary Mario villain.
“Do you know what it was like to figure out how to breath the fire?” Black deadpanned in the video pre-recorded, which was shown alongside the trailer. “I learned the art of firemaking from Gene Simmons of Kiss!”
To quote our very own Greg Kumparak, “Bowser looks scary! Mario looks like Chris Pratt.”
It’s true. We get to meet Mario as he slithers through a pipe into a mystical, mushroom-filled landscape, only to be without a trace of a companion in the field. Chris Pratt’s Mario appears to be more Andy Dwyer rather than Star-Lord and we’re thrilled for him.
“It’s been a lifetime desire of mine to be Mario,” Pratt said before the trailer was aired. He recalled spending the majority of his life running around the streets of Koopas in the first Mario arcade game in the local laundry.
We weren’t able to witness other performances by the cast of stars, which includes Anya Taylor-Joy’s Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi and the former TechCrunch Disrupt speaker Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. We might be able to see them in the second trailer!
“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” is scheduled to release on 7 April 2023.
