Many are wondering what Chris Pratt’s Mario will sound like in the future Super Mario Bros. film. And while that voice has not yet been made public, Pratt claims it’s “unlike anything you’ve ever heard.”
The actor spoke about this “updated” voice to different. He said he was proud of his rendition after he worked with the directors to figure out what worked and what didn’t.
“I worked really hard with directors and tried a few things and came up with something I’m proud of and can’t wait to be seen and heard by people,” he said. “It’s an animated voiceover narrative. This is not a live-action movie. I don’t wear a plumber suit running. I provided a voice for an animated character, and it was updated and unlike anything you’ve heard in the world of Mario before.
Co-Producer Chris Meledandri recently spoke TooFab that this mysterious voice is not the stereotypical Italian accent, but is said to be covered in the film. He was also recent defended the molding of Pratt, who was not Italian, as Mario. It may be several hours until this voice is officially revealed, too, as The movie is delayed to 2023.
With Pratt, the rest of the cast includes Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike ( previously announced). Mario’s traditional voice actor, Charles Martinet, will also be involved and have a “surprise cameo in the film.”
Mario’s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, will produce the film alongside Chris Meledandri of Illumination.
