The first trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie is here

Nintendo has debuted the first trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, revealing exactly which voice Chris Pratt has gone with for the main character.

Spoiler alert: it’s his own voice. Regular old Chris Pratt voice. Close your eyes and you’ll hear Emmett, Star-Lord, Owen Grady, and even Andy Dwyer. Open them again and you’ll see our old pal Mario bouncing around Mushroom Kingdom, in the first trailer for Universal Pictures’ upcoming The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

The plumber isn’t actually the main focus of this initial teaser, though: instead, we spend most of our time with the King of the Koopas, Bowser, who’s voiced by Jack Black. The clip sets him up as a bad guy to be reckoned with, burning down an entire kingdom with what appears to be his right-hand Koopa, Kamek. Check out the full trailer below.

If you’ve watched to the end, you’ll also have caught a glimpse of Luigi – voiced by Charlie Day – in a familiar setting. As predicted, this is all prime material for LEGO sets that could go beyond the current Super Mario theme’s assortment of brick-built characters, finally giving us the minifigure-scale sets most of us have been asking for since day one.

From this trailer alone, those sets could encompass the Mushroom Kingdom, Luigi’s Mansion and – of course – yet another Bowser. Because the one we just got definitely wasn’t enough…

The Super Mario Bros. Movie stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. It’s due to hit cinemas on April 7, 2023.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
