Super Mario Bros. Movie First Look Revealed, Trailer Coming Thursday
The first look at the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie has been revealed. Previously adapted as a live-action feature film in 1993, the new movie will be fully animated in a style reminiscent of the video games. On Thursday, Oct. 6, Nintendo will debut the first trailer for the film for a Nintendo Direct presentation. Along with this announcement from Nintendo comes the release of the first poster, unveiling our first look at Mario in the Mushroom Kingdom.
Take a look at the teaser poster below.
Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic co-direct the animated Mario movie using a screenplay by Matthew Fogel. Plot details have not yet been revealed, but given the artwork seen in the poster, it would appear that this movie will more closely resemble its source material with the titular plumber making his way through the magical land known as the Mushroom Kingdom, led by Princess Peach while under the threat of King Bowser and his minions.
MOVIEWEB VIDEO OF THE DAY
For many years, Nintendo execs were not interested in making another movie after the live-action adaptation was met with harsh criticism from critics and fans. One common complaint with that film is that it deviated so far from the video games with many of the characters looking unrecognizable. If nothing else, it was an interesting take on the Super Mario Bros. story, and over the years, it has developed a bit of a cult following. It was going to take a strong idea for a new film to get Nintendo back on board to roll the dice with another adaptation, but Mario creator and the film’s co-producer Shigeru Miyamoto has a “very good feeling” about it.
“Super Mario film is pretty much done, working on the last bit, have a very good feeling about it, but we are very careful not to betray customers and meet expectations, continue to work to polish the movie,” Miyamoto said of the movie’s progress last year.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie Has an A-List Voice Cast
The voice cast for the Super Mario Bros. movie includes Chris Pratt as Mario, though the casting has not been without some backlash. Also featured in the ensemble voice cast are Charlie Day as Luigi, 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 Foreman Spike. Longtime Mario voice actor Charles Martinet will also be featured in an undisclosed cameo voice role as an Easter egg for the gamers.
The Super Mario Bros. movie will be released only in theaters on April 7, 2023. Watch for the trailer to be released on Oct. 6.
