It’s-a Me, Mario!

It’s been years since Mario and company were on the big screen. Illumination and Nintendo announced they joined forces to bring the beloved video game characters on to the big screen as an animated movie.

The team-up couldn’t be more perfect with Illumination, the brainchild animators of Despicable Me, Minions, Sing, and The Secret Life of Pets. So, the new animated film for the untitled Super Mario Bros. movie is definitely in good hands.

Although, it’s too early for plot details as we would like to speculate in hopes of flying clouds, mushroom armies, and castles.

They did announce the full cast and they are bringing out all the big guns for the voices.

Leading the voice cast is Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and Charlie Day as Luigi. The rest of the voice cast includes Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kemek, Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike, and surprise cameos from Charles Martinet.

With a couple of Kongs in the film, we may have a subplot of saving the princess from the Kongs.

Nonetheless, we’re already salivating on the relaunch of this animated film of Super Mario Bros. Just be the cast announcement, it sounds more intriguing than the live-action 1993 film with Super Mario Bros.: The Movie that starred Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper. Although it bombed at the box office, the film eventually became a cult classic with video game fans of Super Mario Bros.

For now, let’s circle the release date around the holidays of 2022. It’s a long time to wait, but we all good things come in those boxes with question marks.

Check out the graphic announcement below. Let us know what you think of this announcement.
