Chris Pratt Nervous to Voice Super Mario in New Movie


Hollywood star Chris Pratt is voicing the fan-favorite character from the classic Nintendo Super Mario video game in the upcoming movie The Super Mario Bros Movie. As one of the most significant gaming characters, Pratt says he was careful in voicing the part as to not disappoint fans.

He told The Hollywood Reporter, “I was pretty nervous when they offered it. I thought, ‘Wow, let’s not s**** this up’. People are passionate about this character and they’ve probably seen some of their favorite IP getting s****** up. It’s kind of a cynical business. People make movies just because a title has reach.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy star said he had already worked on the LEGO Movie and felt more confident stepping into the role. “It’s a big challenge. Just because something has reach doesn’t mean it’s going to be a good movie and there’s instances of people making bad movies and ruining people’s childhoods. So the pressure was on to not do that and, thankfully, we didn’t. I think the movie is fantastic and I think your childhood is firmly intact,” he said.

The director of the film, Aaron Horvath, said that he sought after Pratt for the part as the actor had the perfect qualities for Mario: He’s funny, he’s down-to-earth and he’s also superheroic. The Super Mario Bros Movie will be released on April 5.

The Super Mario Bros movie is distributed by Universal, a leading American media and entertainment giant which is home to some of the world’s most significant film, television and music properties. The Universal brand has been a household name for decades and is consistently praised for its contributions to the entertainment world and creating powerful content.

Chris Pratt is a talented and successful Hollywood actor who has stars in a variety of movies, television, and print works. Some of his popular works include Moneyball, Jurassic World, Passengers, and Avengers: Endgame. He is also well known for his hilarious comic timing and outgoing, humorous persona. His involvement in The Super Mario Bros Movie is sure to bring a unique energy to the film.
