Chris Pratt is Mario, Charlie Day is Luigi, Jack Black is Bowser in Upcoming Super Mario Movie

Seth Rogen is Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key is Toad, and Anya Taylor-Joy is Peach.



In some of the most bizarre casting we have ever heard of, Nintendo surprised us during their recent Direct Event this week where they shared the main cast that will be voicing the core characters in the upcoming Super Mario film.

We never really thought about who would voice the older Mario but this just seems super weird. But hey, it might work! Maybe…
This is just perfect casting, both as a voice and live-action. Sure, this movie is going to be animated but we are in full support of Charlie Day playing Luigi in a live-action film some day. Wild card, bitches!
Another fantastic casting choice. Both in appearance and in voice, Anya Taylor-Joy is going to knock this out of the park. And then stomp you in chess.
If Bowser doesn’t sing in this movie, we are going to be disappointed.
Come on, we all knew, right?
Expect Donkey Kong to roll up and smoke some banana leaves and make plenty of pot references.
After seeing the entire cast lineup, we have no doubts that this film is going to be absolutely hilarious.

The upcoming Super Mario film, which is currently untitled though we suspect it will probably be something like “Super Mario”, looks like it is going to be a pretty funny film considering the cast. We just hope that when it releases next year that it opens up some sort of Nintenoverse where we get crossovers from all over that lead to some sort of Super Smash Bros Infinity War event. I mean, could you imagine?

The film is scheduled to be released in North America by Universal Pictures on December 21, 2022 and stars Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Seth Rogen, Fred Armisen, Kevin Michael Richardson, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Charles Martinet.
