It’s been a long time, but it’s almost here: we’re going to check out Nintendo’s upcoming Schief mario bros. movie. The animated film was officially announced in 2018 as a collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind it minionsand today the companies release the first trailer.
Since then, we’ve learned little details, particularly about the cast, including Jack Black as Bowser, Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and – most controversially of all – Chris Pratt as Mario. Pratt has described his take on the iconic plumber’s voice as “unlike anything you’ve heard before in the Mario world.”
As a tease, Nintendo also released this poster earlier this week:
Nintendo is making a big deal of the trailer reveal, as it should be, with a Nintendo Direct dedicated specifically to the movie. (The company says no game information will be shown during the event.) It will air October 6 at 4:05 p.m. ET on YouTubeand you can also check it out in the video embedded at the top of this article.
