The reviews are in for the casting choices of the new Mario film – 14 super takedowns

The reviews are in for the casting choices of the new Mario film – 14 super takedowns

the poke - 1 month ago

The voice cast for the upcoming animated Super Mario Bros film has been announced, and people are divided over whether it’s really terrible, or simply terrible.

The main bone of contention is this –

Pratt would be stepping into the giant shoes of the late lamented Bob Hoskins, who played him in the live action version.

It’s Alway’s Sunny in Philadelphia star, Charlie Day, will play Luigi, Jack Black hopes to be a roaring success as Bowser, while Anya Taylor-Joy of The Queen’s Gambit fame will play Princess Peach.

If the film’s reviews are anything like these responses, it’s-a-gonna-be-a-disaster.
