The release date of the Super Mario Bros. movie trailer. is set for November 29, Nintendo Direct

The movie Super Mario Bros. gets a new trailer tomorrow. In a tweet, Nintendo confirmed that the Chris Pratt-directed anime video game adaptation is getting a second exclusive preview. The event will be streamed live on Nintendo’s official YouTube channels on Nov. 30 at 3:30 a.m. IST in India / Nov. 29 at 2 p.m. PT in the US. As part of the announcement, Nintendo also dropped a new Super Mario Bros. movie poster. featuring Princess Peach’s throne, placed in front of a stained glass window resembling her likeness.

The first Super Mario Bros. movie trailer. never featured the royal damsel in distress, voiced by Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit). We got a brief glimpse of Peach’s castle on top of a mountain, followed by Pratt’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) first voice as Mario, who lacked the signature high-pitched Italian accent. Pratt’s devotion to this film caused concern in the gaming space, even more so when he told Variety that his voice acting was “unlike anything you’ve heard before in the world of Mario. “. The film also has Charles Martinet in its cast, who originally voiced Mario and Luigi in the video games. You can guess why he doesn’t play the role.

Nintendo also clarified that the Direct event is dedicated solely to the Super Mario Bros. movie trailer, and that new video game updates will be offered. Other cast additions include Jack Black (Tropic Thunder) as Bowser, Seth Rogen (Superbad) as Donkey Kong, and Keegan-Michael Key (The Lion King) as Toad.

Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic are co-directing the Super Mario Bros. movie. under the supervision of original game creator Shigeru Miyamoto, who is attached as a producer. Matthew Fogel, best known for Minions: The Rise of Gru and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, is the screenwriter.

Earlier this month, John Leguizamo, who played Luigi in the Super Mario Bros. from 1993, expressed disappointment with the casting choices in the upcoming anime adaptation for its lack of diversity. “Directors Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton fought very hard for me to be the lead [in the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film] because I was a Latin, and [the studio] didn’t want me to be the leader. They fought really hard, and it was such a breakthrough. So they go back and don’t start another [actor of colour] kinda sucks,” he said in a recent interview.

This is the second time Leguizamo has voiced concerns about the “all-white” cast. The first was after the first trailer, when he tweeted (via DailyMail) that he was the “only one who knows how to make this movie work script-wise!” Keep in mind that neither Pratt nor Leguizamo are of Italian descent.

The movie Super Mario Bros. is set to be released on April 7, 2023 in cinemas worldwide.
