The long-awaited Super Mario Bros movie‘s final design is now known. Nintendo and Illumination have released a teaser trailer that gives a sneak preview of the computer-animated blockbuster.
The video depicts Bowser (Jack Black’s character) attacking a kingdom of penguins in search of an invincible star. We already know who will save them, though, since Mario (Chris Pratt) and his brother Luigi (Charlie Day) both make brief appearances in the Mushroom Kingdom.
The Super Mario Bros movie also features Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach from The Queen’s Gambit, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and other well-known actors. Super Mario Bros. is scheduled to be released on April 7, 2023.
The makers aren’t taking any chances if the teaser is any indication. You won’t get flashbacks to the peculiar 1993 live-action film; this seems to be a conventional CG film aimed to appeal to a broad audience.
Having said that, if the renowned gaming brand isn’t enough on its own, the top-notch performers and opulent aesthetics might make it stand out.
