The last Super Mario Bros. movie in the teaser we hear Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong for the first time. During the clip, Mario takes on Donkey Kong in an arena of sorts – just like we saw in the previous trailer – but this trailer expands on the scene.
While it seems like Mario is on the losing side of the battle, this seems to change when the titular plumber hits a question mark block and (presumably) gets the Super Bell, turning him into Cat Mario. Seeing Mario in his cute fuzzy catsuit makes Donkey Kong burst into laughter, giving us the chance to hear Rogen’s signature smile.
It’s nice to finally hear Rogen as Donkey Kong, and I must admit I’m pleasantly surprised how well his voice (and laugh) fits the character. The film also features Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and Jack Black as Bowser. From what I’ve heard so far, it looks like Nintendo and Illumination – the animation studio working on the film – have done a great job with the casting.
With every new trailer Nintendo releases, I’m getting more and more excited for the movie’s release. Fortunately, we have to hold out for a few more months, because the Super Mario Bros. movie will be in cinemas from April 7.
