Super Mario Bros. Movie Gets April Premiere Date, First Teaser Trailer Airs Next Month


Illumination’s Super Mario Bros. movie gets its first teaser trailer next month. It also has a new premiere date for the film after the April delay.

The animated film, starring Chris Pratt as the titular plumber, will hit theaters on April 7, 2023. The biggest question regarding the movie was what Pratt’s Mario performance will sound like, and maybe we’ll finally get to hear it in a few weeks. The film’s first teaser trailer will premiere at New York Comic Con on October 6 at 4 p.m. ET.

The cast of Super Mario Bros. also includes Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogan as Donkey Kong. The film was delayed to ensure quality, although last year Nintendo was reportedly pleased with how the film was shaping up at the time. Pratt recently described his performance as “unlike anything you’ve heard in the Mario world”, and it will apparently not have an Italian accent.
