The Super Mario Bros Movie: teaser trailer offers a chance to hear Chris Pratt voice titular character
Minions studio Illumination have released a teaser trailer of The Super Mario Bros. movie and yes - you can hear how Chris Pratt approached the character
After Nintendo Direct released the teaser poster for the forthcoming The Super Mario Bros. Movie, animation studio Illumination (who are responsible for the Minions franchise) have now dropped a teaser trailer for the film.
The trailer offers Nintendo fans a chance to not only have a look at the animation style used in the forthcoming movie, but also a glimpse into both the characters and the voices involved in the production.
Perhaps the most important question on everyone’s mind since the cast announcement for the movie is how Chris Pratt, star of the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies, will approach the voice of the Italian plumber.
Would he attempt to mimic the exaggerated accent maybe Mario fans are familiar with throughout the video game franchise?
Or, much like Bob Hoskins did in the 90s adaptation of Nintendo’s flagship character, will Chris Pratt just voice it as Chris Pratt?
Find out for yourself by watching the teaser trailer below.
