The Mario movie trailer is as cursed as we hoped
The first trailer for the much awaited “Super Mario Bros. Movie,” an animated adventure with some very meme-worthy casting, was released by Nintendo. Fans were eager to see exactly how insane this movie would be with Chris Pratt as Mario and Jack Black as Bowser. On of America’s YouTube channel, the teaser debuted to more than 600,000 viewers, and it was also aired live at New York Comic Con.
Despite being very brief, the trailer didn’t let me down. Chris Pratt’s voice eventually emerged from Mario’s animated form, and it was deliciously strange. Additionally, Keegan-Michael Key is already doing a fantastic job as Toad, chastising Mario for thinking he was a mushroom. A toad with a grudge? Oh, yes.
Back on his crap, Bowser tries to take our stars in the first scene of the trailer, as if we’re playing “Mario Party.” leads the Koopa Troopas—true to their name, they are very literally troops—to a snowy castle, where he commands them to unlock the gates. To protect their territory, several penguins attempt to throw snowballs at him, but their attempts are unsuccessfull Black appears to have so far made a sincere commitment to playing the dreadful Mario villain.
Do you know how long it took me to master the ability to breathe fire? In a pre-recorded video that accompanied the trailer, Black deadpanned. “I had to pick Gene Simmons’ brain from Kiss!”
Greg Kumparak, one of our own, said, “Bowser looks terrible! a Mario chris pratt.”
He is correct. Mario first appears when he emerges from a warp pipe into a magical world filled with mushrooms, but he unexpectedly falls by himself in a field. We adore Chris Pratt’s portrayal of Mario thus far since he resembles Andy Dwyer more than Star-Lord.
Before the teaser premiered, Pratt declared, “Becoming Mario has been a lifelong ambition of mine. He remembered spending hours of his life at his neighbourhood laundry crushing Koopas in the first Mario arcade game.
The star-studded ensemble, which included Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and previous TechCrunch Disrupt speaker Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, did not perform any further scenes for us. Maybe they’ll appear in the second trailer!
The release date for “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” is set for April 7, 2023.
