One of the biggest announcements for the video game community this year has been the new Mario movie, coming to the big screen in 2022. Illumination studios, the creators of ‘Despicable Me’ and ‘Minions’, are joining Nintendo in this venture to give new life to Mario, Luigi, Bowser and Peach in ‘Super Mario Bros.’ It’s been a while since the popular duo appeared in a movie in 1993, which was welcome with lots of negative reviews.
This time, however, Nintendo is ready to make this production a success by lining up a cast of stars to provide their voices for the characters. The film will feature Chris Pratt as Mario, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach - who is regarded as one of Hollywood’s most promising actresses. Charles Martinet, the video game voice of Mario, will also have an unspecified cameo role.
Along with the announcement of the film, there was an explosion of positive social media reactions - mostly due to Pratt’s casting as the movie’s main character. ‘Super Mario Bros.’ will be directed by the ‘Teen Titans Go! To the Movies’ team of Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic with a screenplay by Matthew Fogel.
Time will only tell if the movie will follow the same unsuccessful fate of many other video game-themed movies or if it will be the exception to the rule with a high quality plot and iconic voice acting performances.
