You must be confused about what the hype is all about. Here let us break it down for you. The most anticipated upcoming animated Super Mario Bros. movie has racked up an all-star voice cast including the Star Lord of Avengers, Chris Patt as Mario. Aren’t you pumped? The list is eternal and we can guarantee that your jaws will drop each time you realize who all are getting together for the iconic Nintendo video game animation, Super Mario Bros.
Like what? Did we hear the truth or are we just imagining things in our minds? Is the Super Mario Bros. movie even real?
Super Mario Bros. Movie Cast List
With the release that is slated for April 7, 2023, Mario Movie has released its foremost trailer on Oct.6, 2022. The Super Mario Bros trailer 2022 was more than enough for the enthusiasts to clamor. In fact, it was a death-star-shattering surprise to discover similar voices behind the scene.
The Mario Bros trailer made us wonder, “Is that Chris Patt?” or “Is it Jack Black?” The all-star cast behind the Nintendo characters who are hellbent on giving them life revealed itself to us in a split second. Although we were stunned at first, it became goosebumps the next second. Check out who else will bring the amazing characters to the big screen on April 7, 2023.
Chris Patt as Mario
If you don’t know who Chris Patt is, then you must have been living under a rock. If you are still trying to recollect where you heard the name before, then this could be a serious matter as it is high time for you realize that you might not be human because even children know his stardom.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe alone, Chris Patt has displayed his unmatched talent, playing Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy II, The Guardians of the Galaxy Special, The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Love and Thunder, Avengers: Endgame.
We are frantic to hear Chris Patt as Mario and he himself is sufficient to make us ecstatic.
Charlie Day as Luigi
The actor and writer Charles Peckham Day, better known as Charlie Day, is known for his outstanding performance as Charlie Kelly on the sitcom “Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” The success of the show led to Charlie Day being nominated for a Satellite Award and Critics’ Choice Television Award.
We were previously aware that the actor was multifaceted with efficiency in singing and playing the piano, besides being an incredible actor. But, this is going to be Charlie’s first time as a voice artist. We are definitely here to cheer our champ.
Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach
That was really on point. Anya Taylor- Joy does look like a princess in real life too. Even if she was to make a screen appearance as Princess Peach, nobody will apparently notice the difference. She is such a beautiful queen.
By the way, haven’t you seen Anya Taylor films like The Queen’s Elizabeth, The Witch, Split, and Thoroughbreds, in which she played characters such as Beth Harmon, Thomasin, Casey Cookie, and Lily? Those were more than enough to show her acting versatility.
Although Anya Taylor made her acting breakthrough in Rober Eggers’ The Witch, who knows if she is going to create another landmark moment in her life by voicing Princess Peach in the Super Mario Bros. movie?
Jack Black as Bowser
To be honest, not every role Black has so far played was family-friendly, but his iconic character, Po in Kung Fu Panda was definitely a gem in the ocean. However, the actor is also famed for his roles in the films like Shallow Hal (2001), Envy (2004), School of Rock (2003), Orange County (2002), and more.
Definitely, the creators would have sought Jack Black before him with a request to play Bowser in Super Mario had they seen him.
Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong
It would be a treat to our ears to hear Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. He has won over millions of hearts as a charismatic buffoon in several hits including “Knocked Up.” Rogen came to the limelight through the film, The-40-Year-Old Virgin (2005).
We better wait until the Super Mario Bros. movie release to clearly understand what is in store for us.
Kagan-Michael Key as Toad
When compared to the original name of Key’s character, it’s amusing how short and compact his current name is. He is well-known for starring in the Comedy Central Sketch series “Key & Peel,” as well as being a cast member on MADtv. The earlier program highlighted Key’s comedic talents, showcasing him using both humorous and insightful sketches to discuss racial issues in America.
Today, he is getting himself prepared to voice Toad in Super Mario, which we think will pave the way to Key’s future success.
Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong
We don’t necessarily require a separate introduction to Fred Armisen’s character, Cranky Kong. After charming producer Marci Klein with his sketch show pilot, comedian, musician, writer, actor, and producer Fred Armisen joined SNL.
Back in 2018, the internet went frenzy after Armisen appeared in Fred Armisen: Standup For Drummers. Frankly speaking, we do have a lot of expectations from Cranky Kong as we think the character would have the potential to make us burst into laughter.
Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek
Okay, this could be something serious. Kevin M. Richardson is well known for his resonant voice and he was often the first choice to voice villainous characters in video games and animations. So, Kamek must be the dark villain in the Super Mario movie.
Kevin’s voice is notably deep, which you might have previously heard on American Dad. On the show, Kevin voiced Principal Brian Lewis. In addition to that role, he also voiced Dr. Hibbert in The Simpsons, Panthro in Thundercats, Martian Manhunter on Young Justice and Bulkhead in Transformers: Prime.
Let us wait in bated breath to see the monstrosity he is yet to bring.
Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike
Lastly, the Mario Movie will bring us, Sebastian Maniscalco, who will complete the all-star cast. The stand-up comedian cum actor will voice Spike, one of our favorite characters in the entire Super Mario game. In our opinion, there would have been no other better casting than Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike since the character might be in need of extra funny vocal expressions throughout the animated movie.
Sebastian has won over a large portion of his audience by releasing five comedy specials. Additionally, he’s played supporting roles in popular films like The Irishman (2019) and Green Book (2018).
