Chris Pratt's Super Mario voice has been revealed

This story about a new voice, boiled down, in 1:31 minutes.

What's the fuss?

The first look at the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie just dropped, and fans finally heard the voice of Mario - for better or for worse.

The situation

Nintendo first announced an animated movie based on the Super Mario Bros. franchise back in 2018, and released the names of the voice cast a few years later.

  • The star-studded cast includes Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, The LEGO Movie, etc.) as the titular Mario.
  • Fans were concerned that not having the original voice actor, who has voiced the iconic character for over 30 years, would tarnish Mario's image.

Nintendo has just dropped the first trailer that gives fans a brief glimpse of the film - including Chris Pratt's Mario voice.

Boiling it down

Mario has never really been a fully voiced character.

This isn't Nintendo's first attempt at a Mario movie.
