The Super Mario Bros cast has been announced. Get your overalls ready!
On Thursday, Illumination and Nintendo announced the voice cast for their new Super Mario Bros movie. The movie doesn’t release until 2022, but the cast has Nintendo and animation fans excited right now.
Taking on the role of everyone’s favorite princess-saving plumber is Chris Pratt. The Guardians of the Galaxy star will voice Mario, while It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Charlie Day will voice his brother Luigi. Emmy-nominated Anya Taylor-Joy will voice Princess Peach, who will most likely be captured by Jack Black’s Bowser.
Also in the cast is Seth Rogen voicing Donkey Kong and Keegan-Michael Key voicing Toad. Kevin Michael Richardson, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Charles Martinet round out the cast for a film that should be a big draw next holiday season.
The Super Mario Bros. Animated Film movie is heading to theaters in North America on 12/21/22!
