Nintendo got plenty of attention for its cast announcements around the movie in 2021, with a host of voice actors confirmed for the film.


The most attention went to the central casting of Chris Pratt as Mario, which attracted some criticism due to how many movies the leading man has been in. However, after the teaser trailer aired, many fans started to accept that he could be a decent fit after all

Other fun bits of casting include Jack Black as an irrepressible Bowser and megastar Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach. You can find the full list of confirmed cast members below:

  • Chris Pratt as Mario

The Super Mario Bros. Movie story

The plot for the film is a little up in the air still. In the teaser trailer we can see a plumber Mario arriving in Mushroom Kingdom for what seems to be the first time.

We also see Bowser collecting a Super Star, so it might be a race to prevent him finding them all.

We’ll have to wait to find out more.
