A new trailer for The movie Super Mario Bros. arrived on Tuesday, giving Nintendo fans a more robust look at the animated adaptation of Mario and Luigi’s Mushroom Kingdom adventures. After teasing Mario, Bowser, Toad, Luigi and an army of penguins last month, Nintendo and Illumination’s new trailer reveals a whole lot more about the brothers’ adventure – and our first look at Princess Peach and Donkey Kong.
The movie Super Mario Bros. stars Chris Pratt as the voice of Mario, with Charlie Day as Luigi, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike. The film is written by Matthew Fogel (Minions: The Rise of Gru) and co-directed by Michael Jelenic (The Teen Titans Go!) and Aaron Horvath (The Teen Titans Go! At the movie theater).
Nintendo and Illumination announced their animated Mario movie in 2021, and while most of the cast had excited fans, Pratt’s casting was mocked relentlessly. In October, Nintendo fans got their first taste of Pratt’s take on Mario, which is… good. Its good. It’s not Jack Black, but it’s…perfectly fine.
The movie Super Mario Bros. is set to hit theaters on April 7, 2023.
