Fans of the video game franchise have been anticipating the first-ever Super Mario Bros. Movie since its official announcement in 2018. This film is supposed to be the result of a collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment, the same studio that gave us Minions. Their wait appears to have been in vain, and they are now disappointed.
Long-time Nintendo fans have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with Chris Pratt’s Mario voice for Illumination’s upcoming, ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie.’ The film is an adaptation of Nintendo’s iconic video game franchise, with Pratt as the heroic plumber of the Mushroom Kingdom. The Super Mario Bros. Movie is scheduled to hit theaters on April 27, 2023.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie, a close collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination Animation, will bring the worlds of the Mushroom Kingdom to the big screen for the first time since 1993’s critically panned Super Mario Bros. The film, directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, stars Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, and Seth Rogen in the roles of some of Nintendo’s most iconic characters.
However, the film’s celebrity cast has sparked debate, and since the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie trailer, fans have flocked to social media to express their opinions on Pratt’s take on Nintendo’s iconic mascot character. Dedicated Nintendo fans have taken to Twitter to give their responses to the new trailer, as well as their first impressions of the cast of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. While many admired the film’s animation and Black’s performance as Bowser, fans were critical of Pratt’s Mario voice.
Many people believe that his voice for the character sounds too similar to the actor’s normal voice. Others have questioned the decision to cast Pratt over a professional voice actor. You can check out the responses below. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
