First Mario Movie Trailer Coming During New York Comic Con

The debut teaser trailer for the Mario movie featuring Chris Pratt as Mario will be here soon.


The first trailer for the Super Mario movie starring Chris Pratt as Mario will be released on October 6 as part of New York Comic Con. The trailer will premiere that day at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.

This will be a "teaser" trailer for the animated film, so don't expect anything too lengthy. But in any event, it'll be the first footage from the film to debut. The movie was produced by Illumination, the studio behind Minions and Despicable Me.

Now Playing: Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Hands On Preview

The Mario movie is directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, who previously collaborated on the animated Teen Titans Go films. The Lego Movie 2 and Minions: The Rise of Gru writer Matthew Fogel wrote the script for the movie, which is produced by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination's Chris Meledandri.

Jurassic World studio Universal is distributing the film, and it co-financed the film alongside Nintendo.

In addition Pratt as the voice of Mario, the movie features an all-star cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.

The Mario movie was originally lined up for release in December this year before it was delayed to April 7, 2023. Pratt has said his Mario voice is "unlike anything you've ever heard."

Very little is known about the story, or any specifics at all. Charlie Day, who voices Luigi, confirmed in February this year that he had begun recording lines for the film, but he couldn't say much more.

"I'd love to tell you all about it, but they are top secret with this stuff. Absolutely, this is serious stuff," Day said. "I know nothing. I show up, and they're like, 'You say this and you say that.' And it's all very funny and good. And then I walk out and there's like two guys in overalls with hammers that are like, 'Don't you tell nobody nothing about this, Charlie. I swear to God we're gonna get your kneecaps, we're gonna break your neck.'"

A Donkey Kong spin-off might come next.
