During the Nintendo Direct event that took place last night, I found out details about Bayonetta 3 and Kirby, but for me the highlight was the announcement of the animated film that follows the story of Mario and his friends. It is set to release at the end of the year and brings to the same place an impressive selection of first-hand actors from Hollywood.
Among the names of those who will borrow their voices for this film, we find Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Brother Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. And these are just some of the big-caliber Nintendo players take on. “recruited”For this project.
The next Super Mario movie has huge potential
I don’t even know who I’m happier with. Either Chris Pratt who can make Mario sound like the Star-Lord of the Guardians of the Galaxy, or Jack Black whose very versatile voice has the potential to make Bowser the star of this movie. And for those who worry about the voice of the main character, Charles Martinet, ie the vocal actor who has so far enlivened the Italian plumber will appear in the film in the form of a surprise cameo.
The film Super Mario will debut in the United States on December 21, 2021, while the premieres in Asia and Europe will take place a little later. Personally, I can’t wait for this release and even if I’m not a big fan of the series, I can’t help but appreciate Nintendo’s efforts to bring together so many talented actors. And did I mention that the animated film will be created by Illumination, meaning the people behind Despicable Me?
