'The Super Mario Bros. Movie' Releases Its First-Ever Teaser Trailer

And Mario, voiced by Chris Pratt, has an American accent.

UPDATE (October 6, 2022): The first-ever official teaser trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been released, unveiling some of your favorite video game characters’ voices.

The preview starts out with a first look at Bowser, voiced by Jack Black, as he and his army are about to get attacked by penguins with snowballs — well, sort of. Then, we see Mario appear out of nowhere, falling from the sky and landing onto Mushroom Kingdom and it is there where we get to finally hear his voice.

Mario, who is voiced by Chris Pratt, appears to be American, which may be confusing to some fans, who have always been led to believe he, along with his brother Luigi (Charlie Day), are Italian. However, in 2020, Masayuki Uemura, who was a Nintendo engineer from 1971 to 2004, revealed Mario’s true ethnicity — at least during the time of the character’s creation.

Super Mario Bros. isn’t set in Japan, but the character’s Japanese. The name Mario sounds Italian, but he isn’t Italian. They were really able to capture that ambiguity,” Uemura told Kotaku.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is slated to hit theaters on April 7, 2023. Watch the first teaser trailer above and scroll below for more info.


ORIGINAL STORY (October 5, 2022): Nintendo has shared the first official movie poster for The Super Mario Bros. Moviealong with some key info about an upcoming presentation regarding the film.

“Tune in at 1:05 p.m. PT on 10/6 for a #NintendoDirect: The Super Mario Bros. Movie presentation introducing the world premiere trailer for the upcoming film (no game information will be featured),” read a tweet posted by Nintendo of America.

The film has been in the works since 2017, further filling fans of the legendary video game characters with excitement as more details are unveiled. Your favorite characters will be featured in the movie and voiced by iconic actors — Mario (Chris Pratt), Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy), Luigi (Charlie Day), Donkey Kong (Seth Rogen), Bowser (Jack Black) and Toad (Keegan-Michael Key).

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is slated to hit theaters on April 7, 2023. Check out the full movie poster along with important info below.
