The cast alone is enough to get me excited about this film. I really don’t need to see a trailer. I have loved the character of Mario since I was a kid, and as a 90s kid, I’m on board for all the nostalgia they can throw at me. That all being said, of course, I’ll check out the trailer when it drops, but I’m already sold on this movie.
It’s been a long time coming and hopefully, it can cleanse the IP of that terrible 1993 live-action travesty that was Super Mario Bros. For real, that movie hurt my soul. The new film has to be better than that so there is nowhere they can go but up in my opinion. Casting Chris Pratt as Mario was a stroke of genius and I know he’ll crush it in the role. Throw in Charlie Day as Luigi and you’ve got real magic. You can catch the Untitled Super Mario Bros. film when it hits theaters on April 7, 2023.
