The Super Mario Bros Movie Nintendo Direct Happened! Here’s What We Learned

Nintendo and Illumination dropped the highly anticipated first trailer for the upcoming The Super Mario Bros Movie during today’s Nintendo Direct, and I have to say, the trailer far-exceeded my expectations. The casting is fantastic, especially what we heard from Bowser (Jack Black) and Kamek (Kevin Michael Richardson).

The opening segment of the trailer shows an intense Bowser, King of the Koopas, as he rains down on the Penguin Kingdom (?). It is both hilarious and terrifying, and it seems like Illumination has captured the essence of the Super Mario brand wonderfully.

During the opening of the Nintendo Direct, we get a lovely introduction from Shigeru Miyamoto talking about the relationship between Nintendo and Illumination and how The Super Mario Bros Movie came to be. After this, we meet Chris Meledandri from Illumination, and then we get to hear directly from Chris Pratt (Mario) and Jack Black (Bowser).

This Nintendo Direct went live during New York Comic Con, and I can only imagine the reaction from the crowd during this monumental event.

After the trailer, Miyamoto promises more information and trailers will be coming in the future, and look forward to The Super Mario Bros Movie when it launches on April 7th, 2023!
