The wait is over – Nintendo has released the first trailer showing off the highly anticipated Super Mario Bros. action movie. We can finally stop talking about Mario’s flat ass and talk more about what his face will look like on the big screen. The Mario Bros Movie trailer was released live to coincide with its appearance at New York Comic-Con, and the Illumination movie is scheduled to premiere on April 7, 2023.
The special Nintendo Direct aired on YouTube and also aired in a conference room at NYCC. The animation is almost over on the movie, after which it turns off. In the trailer, King Koopa (Jack Black) and his army of Koopas mount the blue penguins we know and love from Mario 64. Of course, Mario (Chris Pratt) also makes an appearance, and he is. sounds exactly like Chris Pratt. You can watch the trailer for Super Mario Bros.
During the convention at NYCC, the cast was there, and Jack Black said he had a big shoe to fill, telling Bowser, “It’s a lot of pressure because Bowser is known by millions around the world. come and love for years,” Black said in the panel. “One of the greatest video game villains of all time. There’s a lot of responsibility with such a built fandom – and great responsibility comes with great power, that’s how they are. say it right?”
“I went with a small method,” explains Jack. I did a lot of research for this role. “And really the only research you can do is play all the games…so that’s what I did. I brought some of my heavy metal roots. Bowser was like a house. heavy metal rock star, a strong and scary rock star. I did a bit of rockin. I think you might be surprised to learn that Bowser has musical inclinations.”
Does this mean we’re getting some Bowser musicals?
In addition to Chris Pratt as the voice of Mario, the film features an all-star cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
