This week, Nintendo announced the voice cast for the upcoming animated movie about our favorite plumber. Topping a stellar cast, it will be Chris pratt who plays the jumper Mario in the film adaptation of the homonymous video game franchise.
Through a recent video on Instagram, the actor tells that during his childhood he played the original arcade of Super Mario Bros. at a laundry near your home. And to do so, he had to steal coins from a wish source, so he basically “stole someone else’s wish” to make his wish come true. “So I’ll wait for that row of karma dominoes to fall on me,” Pratt says humorously. «But for now, it’s me, Mario«.
«I am very excited to announce that I will be the voice of that [personaje de] video game that I dreamed of playing as a child. Dreams do come true, “concludes Pratt, after ensuring that he works hard to hit the nail on the head with Mario’s voice.
It should be noted that the histrion of Guardians of the Galaxy In effect, he must give his all, in order to counteract the obvious misgivings of some Internet users. The actor Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb) joined those dissatisfied with the casting through a tweet referring to the signing of Chris Pratt as “anti-Italian discrimination.” After all, Mario is Italian, so Martella apparently prefers to be played by someone of that nationality.
Another user asserted that “Danny DeVito should be Mario, not Chris Pratt”, probably considering that the Emmy winner is of Italian descent. But indifferent to nationality, a third Internet user put on the table – through a video – the obvious choice for the film, that is, Charles Martinet, who has been the voice of the mustachioed in video games since the 1990s.
Other Twitter users simply reacted with humor to the casting news. For example, an image from the saga Jurassic world was misrepresented so that Pratt’s character wore the iconic Mario outfit. And he is even seen in the company of a fierce Yoshi! But that is not all. There are also humorous comparisons between the poses of the plumber and Star-Lord. And speaking of Guardians of the Galaxy, yeah, that’s Chris Pratt dancing to the music of the video game.
What do you think of Mario’s official voice for the next Universal Pictures movie? The animated film will show off Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) in the steering chair. Its premiere is scheduled for December 21, 2022.
His cast of voices complement him Anya Taylor-Joy (Peach), Charlie day (Luigi), Jack black (Bowser), Keegan-Michael Key (Toad) and Seth rogen (Donkey Kong), among others.
