During tonight’s Nintendo Direct, Shigeru Miyamoto took to the stage to give a brief update on the project he’s currently working on: the upcoming Super Mario animated movie.
The update kept the focus on introducing who would lend their voices to well-known Mario characters, with several family names on the plan.
Chris Pratt will play Mario himself (best known for the films Guardians of the Galaxy, Parks and Rec, and Jurrasic World), while brother Luigi will play Charlie Day (probably better known as Charlie in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). Princess Peach is voiced by Anya Taylor-Joy, which most people probably know from the Netflix hit The Queen’s Gambit. On the bad side, we find Jack Black as Bowser and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong.
The man we know with the voice of Mario – Charles Martinet – will also play a role in the film, but it is not known exactly what voices he will contribute.
In addition to the above, Keegan Michael Key, Fred Armisen, Kevin Michael Richardson and Sebastian Maniscalco fill the audio gallery.
The film will be released in the United States on December 21, 2022. No Norwegian date has been given.
From the past we know that Nintendo has acquired Minions and Cruel Me Illumination Entertainment as partners. Chris Meledandri, CEO of Illumination, sits in the production chair alongside Miyamoto.
