The Super Mario Bros. is coming for a big animated experience and today we have the cast decision for the project. So far, the announcement has been met with a lot of controversy. The big complaint is that Chris Pratt isn’t actually Italian. He is however an actor who can play anything because he is an actor. The internet is a silly place sometimes.
The big players include, Mario (Chris Pratt), Princess Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy), Luigi (Charlie Day), Bowser (Jack Black), Toad (Keegan-Michael Key), Donkey Kong (Seth Rogen), Cranky Kong (Fred Armisen), Kamek (Kevin Michael Richardson) and Spike (Sebastian Maniscalco).
I’m confused why they just didn’t get our original Mario voice to do the work? Either way, I’m totally fine with the casting. I’m just hoping that they get the property correct.
