The first trailer for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie from Nintendo and Illumination is set to arrive next month during New York Comic Con. The convention confirmed the news in an official tweet recently, stating that fans can tune in on 6 October at 4pm ET (or 10pm SAST) to watch the trailer.
The Super Mario movie was originally announced last year during a Nintendo event. The company also announced the full cast who will be voicing the popular characters in the animated movie, including Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya-Taylor Joy as Princess Beach, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad. Charles Martinet, who voices Mario in the video games, will also appear in the movie but not as Mario. It’s very puzzling.

We won’t have to wait long for the first trailer, it seems. Illumination, the same animation company behind the Despicable Me series, will present the new trailer at New York Comic Con on 6 October. This also marks the first attempt to make a Mario movie since the notoriously bad live-action Super Mario Bros. movie from 1993.
In related news, a bunch of details from the upcoming Super Mario movie apparently leaked online ahead of its release next year. This includes a rough outline of the entire plot, which we won’t mention. However, if you don’t mind spoilers and want to find out what to expect from the movie’s story, then read up on all the details and leaks right here.
The Super Mario movie is scheduled to release on 7 April 2023.
