Fan Creates Realistic Super Mario Bros Video Game Trailer Using Movie Cast
While Super Mario Bros. await the first teaser for the yet-untitled computer-animated adaptation, a plumber enthusiast has created a teaser trailer for what could be the biggest Super Mario Bros. game yet. never realized.
A YouTuber and digital artist who publishes under Re-Imagined Games used the Unreal Engine 5 to create the Super Mario Bros. video game trailer, the process of which he detailed via his channel. The trailer mainly showcases levels 1-1 and 1-2 of the 1985 video game, here with incredibly detailed visuals, characters, and worlds. In the video, a Chris Pratt Mario jumps and runs through levels picking up coins, smashing goombas, smashing blocks, powering up with a mushroom before sliding down the mast. From there, Mario heads into the tunnel and the basement, even reaching the infamous “hidden” warp zone. We also get a glimpse of the game’s first castle, concluding with the still devastating text: “Thank you Mario! But our princess is in another castle!”
Re-Imagined Games also plans to release videos featuring Bowser and Luigi.
In addition to Chris Pratt, the Super Mario Bros. (which is untitled at the time of publication) will feature the voices of Charlie Day (Luigi), Anya Taylor-Joy (Princess Peach), Jack Black (Bowser), Keegan-Michael Key (Toad), Seth Rogen (Donkey Kong) and Fred Armisen (Cranky Kong). It is directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, who co-created The Teen Titans Go! It will be produced by Nintendo and Illumination, the studio behind the grinch and the Despicable Me franchise.
