Teaser trailer for Super Mario Bros. movie features well-loved classic heroes and villains

What's Trending with MJ

“Everyone, gather around the TV, they released the Super Mario Bros Movie trailer.”

Those words were spoken at my house yesterday, followed by everyone running to the living room to watch the 2.5-minute teaser trailer for the highly anticipated movie.

We first see Bowser, “King of the Koopas” and his Koopa troop, who trembles in fear of him.

He’s taken over the mushroom kingdom, and after the blue penguins unsuccessfully attempt to stop him, Bowser asks, “who’s gonna stop me?”

Enter our beloved Mario. He enters the mushroom kingdom looking dazed and confused until the adorable toad greets him.

In the last few moments, you see a frightened Luigi being chased by Dry Bones.

The long-awaited animated movie features the voices of Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong.

It’s expected out on April 7, so we have a long wait. However, the studio says they plan on gradually releasing more trailers in the build-up to the film’s release.

Have a look below.
