The Super Mario Bros. Movie Looks Great, Sounds Terrible
The first teaser trailer for the big budget, animated Super Mario Bros. movie arrived on the internet yesterday and it looks phenomenal. I love almost every visual this movie has to offer. But watch out for Chris Pratt’s weird accent for Mario…
I just sounds so bad. I think I’d prefer if he was just his normal Chris Pratt voice instead of whatever weird little slight accent he’s trying to give it. So bad! Also, clearly Mario looks like Fix-It Felix, right? It’s in the eyes. Those aren’t Mario’s eyes. Those are standard animated movie eyes.
Anyway, looking past the weird Mario choices, the rest of this trailer is gorgeous. The slow, serious build-up to a truly powerful Bowser is a great choice! I love the balance between serious and some comedy. I’m so glad to see this isn’t some slapstick nonsense. It looks awesome!
It just sounds weird. But we’ll find out for sure how the voicework works when it comes to theaters next year!
