The new ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ hit theaters a few months ago, and it was just a matter of time until it was translated into numerous languages in different countries of the world. The movie was even dubbed in other languages and displayed in 3D format.
In other words, it was fair to assume that a lot of people, especially the little ones, were eager to watch Super Mario as he fought his way through the evil tricks of Bowser to save Princess Peach. This time, it seems that the legendary Italian plumber has raised the stakes a bit, proving that it can even perform well in a wrestling match against the humongous Donkey Kong. Teaming up with his good old friend and brother Luigi, Mario will now land on Netflix with his new movie very soon.
‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ (2023) arrives on Netflix on Dec. 3
If you have a Netflix subscription, like many other folks, you’re only a few days away from having the chance to watch the latest movie featuring the Italian plumber and video game icon on the famous streaming service. That’s because, according to Vulture, ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ from 2023 will become available to watch via Netflix on Sunday, December 3.
The new Super Mario movie has the ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ song by Bonnie Tyler as its soundtrack, possibly suggesting that the funny little plumber might be the man that the world needs. After all, he always does his best to save the princess, who is almost always kidnapped by Bowser in another castle, so why wouldn’t he qualify?
In the original version of the new Super Mario movie, the role of the iconic video game character will be given voice by Chris Pratt, an actor famous for his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic. Princess Peach will be voiced by Anya Taylor Joy, a young actress who became famous for her main role in The Queen’s Gambit series, where she plays a brilliant chess player who constantly gets into major chess competitions.
Bowser, the main antagonist of ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie,’ will be played by Jack Black, a man who seems to be born for comedy movies due to his unforgettable roles in ‘School of Rock’ (2003), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017), ‘Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny’ (2006), and more.
Luigi, the younger brother and ‘partner in crime’ of Mario, will be given voice by Charlie Day, an actor who is otherwise known for his roles in The Lego Movie (2014), ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ (2005), Fist Fight (2017), Horrible Bosses (2011), and more.
Super Mario: a history of 4 decades
When we say ‘Super Mario, ‘ the first thing that comes to mind is one of those numerous pixelated video games where the character appears as driving a kart, jumping over obstacles, playing golf, and so on. Mario was first introduced in video games, and the character’s first appearance happened way back in 1983 due to a game simply called ‘Mario Bros.’ and running as an arcade platformer.
Two years later, the first Mario game for the 8-bit console Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was released, which was known as ‘The Super Mario Bros.’ Until this day, the iconic Super Mario game character appeared in more than 200 video games for pretty much all platforms you can imagine.
