Chris Pratt Reveals 'First Look' At Super Mario Movie

Chris Pratt Reveals 'First Look' At Super Mario Movie

What's next, Chris Pratt as Kratos? Proving that nothing is sacred anymore, the live-action Super Mario movie is moving forward. Safe to say, the announcement that the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy star will be playing that portly plumber hasn't gone down well.

Just when you thought the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie was the worst video game adaptation out there, along comes Universal with plans for a glossy CGI reimagining of the Mario name. Pratt is taking lead billing, and now, he's given us a (joke) first look at the movie.

What has Pratt shared from Super Mario?

The currently untitled Mario movie is still the talk of the Twitterverse. Sticking a middle finger to his haters, Pratt has shared a "first look" at the maligned movie. Clearly taking the Mickey, Pratt posted a video where he turned Star-Lord into the mushroom-stomping hero.

Revamping a scene from 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Mario is seen jumping for a star - replacing the purple Power Stone. Pratt captioned the post, "Amazing first look at Super Mario Brothers. This is going to be epic", however, not everyone was convinced. We've got to admit though, you got a chuckle out of us thanks to turning Gamora into Toad. 

What else do we know about the Mario movie?

Like it or not, you're going to have to get used to the fact the Mario movie is on the way and Pratt is playing him. Elsewhere, there's an all-star cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and Jack Black as Bowser. It seems Illumination Entertainment is potentially setting up a Nintendo Cinematic Universe thanks to Seth Rogan's role as Donkey Kong.

Even though the writing is on the wall with the Mario movie, Illumination's impressive track record the likes of the Despicable Me gives hope that this adventure won't be as bad as we're already predicting. There's a lot going on with Nintendo right now, and with Universal already expanding its theme parks with a Donkey Kong land, the Mario movie is the next step in the studio's domination. Either way, this video game giant is on the way for Christmas 2022.
