Well, based on the responses to the “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” trailer the answer is this: The film’s Mario sounds just like Chris Pratt.
The actor told Variety earlier this year that he “worked really closely with the directors and trying out a few things and landed on something that I’m really proud of and can’t wait for people to see and hear.”
The first trailer for the upcoming film gives viewers their first chance to see the visuals and hear the characters, as voiced by celebs like Pratt, Charlie Day as brother Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach.
Pratt’s appearance in the trailer amounts to two lines, but that was enough to get Twitter users talking ― especially since his version of the Italian American plumber doesn’t seem particularly Italian.

Chris Pratt saying he worked so hard on the Mario voice only for it to sound like Chris Pratt is the funniest thing

I haven’t seen anyone who loves the Chris Pratt voice, I feel like people will either just accept it or hate it lol. I’m willing to wait another trailer before I make a final judgement, especially since everything else we saw and heard was actual really well done. We’ll see

Chris Pratt's voice is still jarring to hear coming out of Mario but everything else in the Mario trailer looked amazing. I'm genuinely excited to see this thing pic.twitter.com/3QCP7oJc0k

I mean it when I say that the new Super Mario Brothers movie should be a borderline silent film and tell the story with no dialogue whatsoever. I am 35 and wish I did not have an opinion on this either.
