The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Check Out The Second Trailer For The Super Mario Bros. Movie

In September, we saw the first official trailer for the upcoming The Super Mario Bros. Movie from Illumination and Nintendo Pictures. Overall, I found the reception to be positive for the trailer that offered a preview of Jack Black’s take on Bowser, Keegan Michael-Key’s take on Toad, and Chris Pratt’s take on Mario.

Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic with a screenplay from Matthew Fogel, the film is produced by Illumination’s co-founder Chris Meledandri and Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo.

With the second trailer, we now have a better look at the Mushroom Kingdom and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach. And as I had hoped, we finally got a look at Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong! We also saw a peek of Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.

The trailer also incorporated familiar elements fans of the franchise will know including a hilarious battle between Donkey Kong and Mario, platforming sections from the original Mario games, a look at the Tanooki Suit, and Mario Kart!

From the looks of it, this is going to be a faithful adaption of the series.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie lands in theatres on April 7, 2023.
