The Plumber Gets An Authentic Italian Voice In The International Mario Bros. Trailer

The most current teaser for The Super Mario Bros. Movie in Italian allows spectators to hear Mario with a genuine voice.

The film's first trailer was released exclusively in Italian on Universal Pictures International Italy's official YouTube page. The Italian teaser may have persuaded fans to watch Super Mario Bros. with subtitles.


Some viewers agreed that the French voice actor for Mario sounded more like the video game plumber than Chris Pratt. Following the trailer's release, many criticized Pratt's portrayal of Mario, despite viewers only seeing a few seconds of his performance. Before the clip dropped, Pratt told fans that his Mario voice would be "unlike anything" they'd ever heard.

However, the little teaser disappointed fans since Pratt merely sounded like a regular person from Brooklyn, New York. Some claimed that the Guardians of the Galaxy actor's voice was not manipulated in any way. Despite the uproar, Pratt's casting was backed by Illumination Entertainment founder and CEO Chris Meledandri. "And now that we've done around 15 recording sessions and the movie is three-quarters finished," Meledandri added, "I sit here and declare that I love his portrayal as Mario."


While Nintendo fans may see The Super Mario Bros. Movie in another language, a fandub gives them a taste of what could have been. One fan grabbed the teaser film and replaced the audio with Charles Martinet, Mario's original voice actor, shouting catchphrases like "mamma mia!" and "it's a me, Mario!" Martinet will feature in unspecified cameo roles in the future film despite not playing the protagonist.

Along with Pratt, the ensemble of The Super Mario Bros. Movie includes Jack Black as Bowser, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and Charlie Day as Luigi. Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Keegan Michael-Key as Toad round out the supporting cast. The clip showed Bowser fighting off snowballs thrown by the Mario 64 penguins. Even though Pratt didn't win over fans' hearts, many took to social media to applaud Black's portrayal as King Koopa. "I did dive into my heavy metal origins since Bowser is kind of like a heavy metal superstar," Black said before the clip debuted at the NYCC panel. In addition, Black teased fans about Bowser's potential "musical" side with a probable song in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
