Though the trailer was short, it satisfied fans and viewers alike. As they finally heard Chris Pratt’s voice in an animated character. Keegan-Michael Key is excellent as Toad in rebuking Mario for turning him into a toad. 

The Mario movie trailer starts with Bowser on his usual business. He’s trying to steal the stars like in the iconic Nintendo video game. Moreover, the Kooka Troopas followed Bowser; where they demanded to open the gates. While some penguins are trying to throw snowballs at him to guard their territory. But they didn’t succeed.

The snowballs of the penguins are no match for Bowser. He then burns the icy castle and captures the “Mario” star power-up. Bowler yells, “I finally found it. Now, who’s gonna stop me.” Then came the Nintendo favorite, Mario.

The video showed Mario flying in a green pipe to the Mushroom Kingdom. In this scene, he bounces over red mushrooms before falling to the ground. He woke up to find Toad while the “Mario” theme song was playing in the background. 

The Mario movie trailer ends with a troop of Dry Bones chasing Luigi in the forest. Moreover, Mario movie was announced in September 2021. Its original release date was set to December 2022 but was already delayed to April 27, 2023.

Illumination Entertainment, who’s behind successful movies like “Minions,” “Despicable Me,” and “Sing,” is producing the movie with Nintendo. While Michael Jelenic and Aaron Hovarth will direct the Mario movie.

Furthermore, Chris Pratt, who isn’t Italian in real life, spoke about Mario’s voice. Pratt said it was “unlike anything you’ve heard in Super Mario. Bros” video games.
