SUPER MARIO BROS. Animated Movie Poster Released; First Trailer Coming This Thursday

Nintendo/Illumination have debuted the first teaser poster for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. animated movie, which will feature Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt as the voice of the iconic plumber.

Nintendo and Illumination have debuted the first poster for the upcoming animated Super Mario Bros. movie, with a teaser trailer set to follow this Thursday.

Though Mario himself is only shown from the back, this poster definitely suggests that fans will be getting a pretty faithful recreation of the colorful, expansive world featured in the classic video games.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt will provide the voice of the title character, with It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia alum Charlie Day on board as his brother Luigi. Joining them will be Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, 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.

There was some backlash when Pratt and Day were cast as the voices of Mario and Luigi, who are usually depicted of a pair of Italian plumbers in the games. Pratt already teased the voice he used for the character, and... yeah, looking forward to that trailer!

The late Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo played Mario and Luigi, respectively, in the critically lambasted 1993 live-action movie.

Super Mario Bros. will be produced by Illumination founder Chris Meledandri and Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto. The movie was scheduled to hit theaters on December 21, 2022, but was recently pushed back to April, 2023.

“Mario and Luigi are two of the most beloved heroes in all of popular culture, and we are honored to have the unique opportunity to work so closely with Shigeru Miyamoto and the widely imaginative team at Nintendo to bring these characters to life in an animated movie, unlike any film Illumination has made to date,” said Meledandri in a statement when the project was announced.
