Finally, the first trailer for The movie Super Mario Bros. happened, and we heard Chris Pratt’s voice coming out of the video game’s iconic plumber’s mouth.
Thursday, October 6, Nintendo and Illumination Studios used the first day of New York Comic-Con to unveil the trailer for the highly anticipated feature film based on Nintendo’s iconic platform game.
Jack Black, who plays King Bowser in the animated film, was on hand to reveal the trailer to the world. When The movie Super Mario Bros. was first announced, the most important question mark revolved around Chris Pratt and how he would sound as a fictional video game character.
After watching the roughly 2 minute trailer, Mario looks like Chris Pratt.
Apart from this, The movie Super Mario Bros. offers wonderful animation. Jack Black looks amazing as Bowser, and the movie looks promising. We only get a few lines of Pratt’s Mario in the trailer, and many are disappointed, but we here at Wired Hip-Hop refrain from evaluating its performance on a small sample.
But let’s focus on the good that this project is. For the most part, it looks like this will be a pretty good animated film adaptation of Super Mario Bros.regardless of the fact that they don’t use Charles Martinet as Mario’s voice.
As for the plot, it looks like Bowser is on a quest to collect stars, and Mario is heading to the Mushroom Kingdom to stop him.
Reactions on Twitter are positive, except for Chris Pratt
From day one, no one wanted Chris Pratt to be the voice of Mario. His alleged MAGA ties, plus Star-Lord being the reason Thanos won (Doctor Strange said it was the only way), didn’t sit well with fans. So the reactions to him being the voice are still negative, even though we haven’t had the full experience.
Super Marios Bros movie. hits theaters on April 7. It also stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, 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.
