Jack Black, Chris Pratt, Seth Rogen and more to star in 2022 Super Mario Bros. movie
An incredible cast has been announced for 2022’s animated Super Mario Bros. movie – including Jack Black, Chris Pratt and Seth Rogen.
Tenacious D’s frontman will star as spiky-shelled villain Bowser (which already sounds incredible!), while Chris Pratt and Charlie Day will play siblings Mario and Luigi respectively, Anya Taylor-Joy will voice Peach, Keegan-Michael Key will play Toad, and Seth Rogen will star as Donkey Kong.
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto tells Variety: “We are collaborating with Chris [Meledandri, Illumination] and his experienced team to not just create a character licensed film, but a new piece of entertainment which brings Super Mario Bros. to life on the screen, and allows everyone to enjoy whether or not they know about the game.
“The production so far is constructive and going very well, and both parties are learning a lot from each other. We humbly ask that fans wait just a little longer for the premiere, and we hope they look forward to seeing the unique characters from Super Mario Bros. on the big screen.”
Jack Black, Tom Morello and Greta Thunberg star in the video for Nandi Bushell and Roman Morello’s charity single, The Children Will Rise Up.
