Chris Pratt’s Mario voice is “jarring” in first trailer, say fans

Chris Pratt’s Mario voice has been known as “jarring” by fans following the first trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Nintendo debuted the trailer in a Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday (October 6), which showcased Pratt’s Mario voice, Jack Black as Bowser and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad for the first time.

While reactions have been constructive on the trailer in normal, the primary concern seems to be Pratt’s voice for the Nintendo mascot – after a long time of listening to unique voice actor Charles Martinet in the video games.

“Chris Pratt’s voice is still jarring to hear coming out of Mario but everything else in the Mario trailer looked amazing,” one Twitter person wrote. “I’m genuinely excited to see this thing.”

Another wrote: “Literally the only meh thing about the Mario Movie trailer was Chris Pratt’s Mario voice. Everything else was fucking AMAZING.”
