One of the Internet’s most anticipated reveals finally happened during today’s Nintendo Direct as we got a teaser trailer for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. film and yes, we did indeed get to hear our first words from Chris Pratt’s Mario.

The star studded cast of the animated movie has stood out as perhaps single most head turning aspect as the thought of what Pratt’s Mario, Jack Black’s Bowser, Charlie Day’s Luigi, and Seth Rogan’s Donkey Kong might sound like proved immediately enticing for many. While we didn’t hear or see all of the aforementioned characters, we did get a few.

This being a fighting game website, we should point out that a handful of the film’s key characters (Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, and Bowser) have appeared in every single Super Smash Bros. entry over the last 23 years.

The Italian plumber and his closest friends and foes have long been parts of the fighting game scene thanks to the overwhelming success of Masahiro Sakurai’s long-running fighting franchise, and we suspect at least a few fists and fireballs will fly in the 2023 film.

The two and a half minute teaser begins with raining lava balls signaling the arrival of Bowser outside the gates of a frozen, penguin-filled kingdom. A massive, floating, lava-filled fortress descends as Jack Black’s Bowser emerges, ready for war. We get a few lines of dialogue from him before jumping to what looks to be an area in the Mushroom Kingdom.

A baffled Mario comes hurdling out of a familiar green pipe into a field of giant mushrooms that we soon learn he’s unfamiliar with. This indicates that this will be an origin story of sorts, as Mario is greeted and informed about the shrooms by Keegan-Michael Key’s Toad.

We don’t see or hear from Luigi, Donkey Kong, Princess Peach, nor Fred Armisen’s Cranky Kong, but it seems this first look is being received with a cautious thumbs up from fans. You can check out the teaser for yourself below via Universal Pictures UK, and then chime in with your thoughts and whether or not you’re sold on seeing it in the comments after.
