Coinciding with the premiere at Comic Con, the Trailer will also be broadcast over the Internet, giving fans who aren’t there a chance to enjoy the spectacle.
What’s already known about the Super Mario Film
Although the Trailer is within reach, the makers of the movie have been scarce with information so far. However, we already know quite a bit about the star cast, which was revealed by Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto back in September last year: Comedian Jack Black (School of Rock) is to slip into the role of Bowser, and actor Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) is to embody the plumber Mario. It is also known that Toad will be played by Keegan-Michael Kay (Get Out) and Donkey Kong by Seth Rogen (Ananas Express). The characteristic of Nintendo’s famous plumber is, of course, his typical Italian accent. It was already announced by Chris Meledandri, co-founder and CEO of Illumination, that actor Chris Pratt would not be up for this, which would be a bummer. Let’s see how and if the authentic accent might still be taken into account in the movie.
By October 6th at the latest, many of the fan’s questions will have been answered. So we can be curious and look forward to the appearance of Super Mario Bros. on the big screen.
