Chris Pratt and Anya Taylor-Joy highlight the cast of Super Mario Bros. movie
Nintendo just announced some exciting new news on their Facebook and Direct Livestream! The Illumination animation studio that brought us the Despicable Me films as well as To sing and The Lorax, are the origin of the life of one of the most beloved video game characters. The feature film adaptation of Super Mario Bros. will be released in the United States on December 21, 2021.
WHO IS PART OF THE OFFICIAL VOICE OF SUPER MARIO BROS.?
Mario creator Shigeru miyamoto also said, while they have no footage to reveal yet… They have announced the official casting of the film! The cast is as follows: Chris Pratt (Mario), Anya Taylor-Joy (Princess Peach), Charlie day (Luigi), Jack Black (Bowser), Keegan Michael-Key (Toad), Seth Rogen (Donkey Kong), Fred armisen (Cranky Kong), Kevin michael richardson (Kamek), Sebastien Maniscalco (Spike) and veteran Nintendo voice actor Charles Martinet in undisclosed cameos.
There is a lot to be learned from this information. So, now we know that rather than keeping this movie strictly Super Mario Bros.… we’re getting characters from Donkey kong, also. Is a Nintendo Expanded Universe upon us? I really hope so. Time will tell how Chris Pratt and Charlie Day can make these iconic voices of Italian plumber brothers heard. But I think it’s an extremely talented cast and this announcement has skyrocketed my expectation for this movie! While Illumination is definitely not my favorite animation studio, I think their talents mixed with Nintendo’s are a perfect match!
What do you think of the cast of the animated film Super Mario Bros. ? Are you excited to see Mario on the big screen?
Super Mario Bros: The Movie premieres on December 21, 2021.
