I know it has been nine months since the announcement, but I am still not over it. Is that going to sound weird?

It seems like it will be something special. "I worked really closely with the directors and tried out a few things and landed on something that I'm really proud of and can't wait for people to see and hear" The narrative is an animation. It is not a live action movie. I'm not going to be running around in a suit. I provide a voice for an animated character that is updated and unlike anything else you have heard in the Mario world before.

Nintendo, please, release a trailer

It looks like the last sentence means that Pratt won't be copying Charles Martinet's take on the famous Nintendo character. We already knew that, but now I am even more curious to know how the character is created.

Chris Meledandri, the founder and CEO of Illumination, said recently that he wasn't happy with the final result. According to Deadline, he said that people love to voice their opinions, even if they aren't always right. I am pretty sure every other person on the internet will voice an opinion whenever we hear a new interpretation of Mario from the man.

The Mario film was supposed to be released in December. It will debut in North America and Japan on April 7 and April 28. The cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach. Martinet will be appearing in "surprise cameos."
