Yesterday, the second The Super Mario Bros. Movie Direct revealed the first proper trailer for the highly-awaited The Super Mario Bros. Movie (following the teaser trailer last month). Missed the presentation? You can now watch the recording on YouTube:
If you’re not interested in the short segment before the trailer (with a video message from Anya Taylor-Joy (Princess Peach) and Seth Rogen (Donkey Kong)), the stand-alone trailer is also available:
Following the reveal of the trailer, a set of movie posters were shared on social media. They feature Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, Toad, Donkey Kong, and Bowser. The one for Donkey Kong reveals that some members of the Kong family (namely Diddy and Dixie Kong) seemingly make an appearance in the movie, though it’s not clear what role they will play.
Here’s the posters:
Finally, Nintendo and Illumination revealed part of the Japanese cast for the movie. Mario will be voiced by none other than Mamoru Miyano (a voice actor that anime fans are quite familiar with!).
Here’s the Japanese voice cast so far:
- Mario: Mamoru Miyano
- Princess Peach: Arisa Shida
- Luigi: Tasuku Hatanaka
- Bowser: Kenta Miyake
- Toad: Tomokazu Seki
The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be released on April 7th in the United States, with France getting the movie on March 29th, and Japan on April 28th.
