Today, Nintendo released a new trailer for the “Super Mario Bros” movie, giving us. Another chance to hear Chris Pratt’s voice as the outstanding pixel plumber. We also got our first official look at Donkey Kong and Princess Peach. Heard Anya Taylor-Joy’s performance as the Mushroom Monarch.
Interestingly, the second trailer is released a little over a month after the first hit the Internet. The limited release schedule may have something to do with the fact that the promotional material for the film leaked after the first trailer.
A new trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie was released Tuesday, giving us a more solid look at Mario and Luigi’s animated adventures in the Mushroom Kingdom.
After teasing Mario, Bowser, Toad, Luigi, and their army of penguins last month. Nintendo and Illumination reveal more about the brothers’ adventures in the new trailer. Which also gives us a first look at Princess Peach and Donkey Kong.
Ironically, shortly before today’s announcement, the movie’s poster also seems to have leaked. Showing more of Toad, Luigi, and perhaps most interestingly, Princess Peach.
Super Mario Bros
I can’t help but think that Princess Peach looks like she is in the uncanny valley of the Mushroom Kingdom. I am looking at Princess Peach, but that is not the case.
With the voice of Aniya Taylor-Joy, we can only hope that this princess maintains her somewhat contradictory character. This dainty maiden can also spank her butt with radish and not be turned into a gaslight. Gatekeeper, or girl boss stereotype.
One of the leaked posters shows Mario on what appears to be a map of New York City, with the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood featured prominently.
Another poster, released by the film’s official account, shows a beautiful interior photo of Princess Peach’s castle. It looks as if Princess Peach’s castle from “Super Mario 64” has been shined and polished with Unreal Engine 5 and ray tracing.

The atmosphere of the film is, so far, very nice. The environments and characters are wonderfully done, peaches aside. And I must say that this second trailer is much better for the film than the first one.
Screenplay by Matthew Fogel, directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenick (“Teen Titans Go! Teen Titans Go! to the Movies” collaborators), is directing. It will be produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri p.g.a. and Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto. The film is co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo and will be released worldwide by Universal Pictures.
The “Super Mario Bros.” movie is scheduled to be released on April 7, 2023 (U.S.) and April 28, 2023 (Japan).
