Something that users have appreciated, because they feared that the same thing would happen that happened with Sonic in his day, who was forced to change his appearance after criticism from viewers
For now, few details have emerged. What is known is that Chris Pratt and Jack Black will play Mario and the great villain Bowser, respectively. For her part, Anya Taylor-Joy will be Princess Peach and Charlie Day will lend his voice to Luigi.
Also confirmed are Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
This will be the second Super Mario movie to hit theaters, although the first animated one, since a live-action film starring Bob Hoskins was released in the early 1990s. In addition, it has been confirmed that the musician Koji Kondo has collaborated on the soundtrack to guarantee fidelity to the originals. The film will be borne by the Illumination studio, which has already faced other great successes, such as the Minions.
