Mario is greeted by a beautiful magical mushroom wonderland paradise. Luigi gets an awful haunted mansion full of lava and undead turtles trying to kill him.

That's pretty on point.

u/kevin9er Oct 07 '22

Mario gets to chill on Vacation Island and paint and learn typing, and he probably gets laid at the end of every main game for saving Peach.

Are Luigi and Daisy even an item?

223

u/PayneTrain181999 Oct 07 '22

Based on hints throughout the spin-off games, yes they are.

Daisy refers to him as “sweetie” in Mario Power Tennis, and there’s a statue of them dancing together in Daisy Circuit in Mario Kart Wii.

u/Stoneghoul Oct 07 '22

Good for him. Daisy is better anyway.

129

u/TheObstruction Oct 07 '22

She's not constantly getting kidnapped by the same dude.

At this point, Peach clearly wants to be with Bowser, and Mario "saving" her is the one doing the kidnapping.

u/Semper-Fido Oct 07 '22

My wife didn't grow up with video games. Got Mario All Stars on Switch and was playing Mario 64 one day when she saw the penguin for the first time. Took the penguin to the mom, she thought it was adorable. Needless to say she didn't speak to me for a bit that night after what transpired next 😂

243

u/ghengiscostanza Oct 07 '22

My mom had a friend over and saw me showing her friends son how to throw the baby penguin off the edge. She told me how disappointed and embarrassed she was that I thought it was fun to hurt baby animals. It’s been years and she’s since passed and that it still makes me sad. I will never throw that computer penguin anywhere but to its mom ever again.

I know two people who have had personal interactions with Jack Black, and both say he's the best celebrity they've ever met. My wife was a background actress (aka extra) on the same show as him, and they were in the hair and makeup trailer at the same time, and he went out of his way to brighten her day. Spent more than 5 minutes riffing and making up a backstory for her character just to make her feel better about being an extra that day. He's a fucking mensch.

I never really think about Bowser conquering kingdoms but considering his flags are up in all the different Mario worlds we go to, I suppose it did happen in the games.

u/DoomOne Oct 06 '22

Bowser has fleets of airships and platoons of tanks in pretty much every game past Super Mario Bros. 3.

In the movie, it seems like "World 8" itself is a giant floating lava city, which would explain why Bowser always manages to have a lava kingdom ready wherever he goes.

This movie looks great. I wonder if they will make a tie-in game! :-P

I'm also loving Kevin Michael Richardson's Kamek. I was afraid he'd only be in a flashback sequence perhaps referencing Yoshi's Island, so I'm glad he appears to be Bowser's number two in the main plot.

I adore that they're barely trying to make him scary. Bowser isn't scary, he's powerful. Characters in the world are scared of him, the audience loves him.

If you, you know, want anything, all you need to do is ask me, Princess. I can grant wishes.

Speaking of that quote, Paper Mario would actually be a really good reference point for a story like this. That's probably the most cohesive the Mario world has ever felt to me.

u/NoNefariousness2144 Oct 06 '22

Yeah Bowser is strong enough to win if he wants with his massive army, but he’s too stupid and passionate about his desires.

Black as Bowser and the whole Koopa army look and sound awesome. Pratt, I think is doing the middle ground between obvious Italian caricature and himself, which while I understand why, still seems like a miscast.

But more importantly, I really really hope that moment he arrives to Mushroom Kingdom, he's travelling from someplace within the Universe (like Mario, a plumber from New Donk City travels to Mushroom Kingdom), and not Chris Pratt or other 'human' being transported to Mario universe. Gives me Monster Hunter vibes...

So, plot prediction:

Bowser clearly wants the power stars from various kingdoms. After claiming the penguin's star, he'll eventually target the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario doesn't seem to know where he is or what's up and is gonna be from the real world, so Toad (who has survival-looking gear) is gonna take him to see Peach who can use the Kingdom Power Star to return him home, but on the way or soon after, Bowser will attack and kidnap Peach. Toad will be Mario's travel companion.

Luigi also entered the Mushroom Kingdom from the real world along with Mario, but ended up elsewhere entirely. After being terrified for 50% of the runtime because Luigi's a coward hukhuk, he'll end up captured by Bowser as personal investment for Mario beyond just being a good guy and wanting to get home.

Mario and Toad will wander the world to try and amass an army/power to fight Bowser, which will include a trip to the jungle where we see Donkey Kong. He'll probably teach Mario about power ups, and they continue along.

Peach will get to do nothing but be Bowser's hostage, maybe send some kind of letter/aid to Mario, and make at most one escape attempt. Otherwise she is just there so Bowser has a main character to talk to.

The final battle happens, Luigi has a moment to show he's not a coward, Donkey Kong swings in for a last moment save, Mario defeats Bowser but he'll power up somehow with the Power Stars he's amassed into Giga-Bowser. Through shenanigans, he'll be defeated.

Mario and Luigi choose to stay in the Mushroom Kingdom rather than return to the real world, and they have a dance party to Jump Up Superstar. Wario and Waluigi make cameo post-credit appearances with their evil plan to sequel bait.

The Penguins and Bowser's minions will be non-stop doing Minion's style nonsense.

Movie trailer content aside, probably would've been better to release the movie on Mar 10. Missed out on that opportunity.

Chris Pratt said he spent a lot of time working on and conceiving the voice of Mario and the best he could come up with was Chris Pratt.

Probably gonna be whispered all stoic and badass before he begins the final battle with Bowser, or he says it right before the credits.

The contrast between Jack Black’s Bowser and Chris Pratt’s Mario is jarring

u/AnActofGold Oct 06 '22

I was honestly surprised by Bowser’s voice. Doesn’t sound like Black at all.

u/DrGarrious Oct 06 '22

I can definitely hear it, but only because I already know it's him.

If I didnt it would be driving mad the entire movie cause i couldnt figure it out, classic.

u/TheMerck Oct 06 '22

Yeah it was more obvious when he shouts because as much as he can change his voice, the way he shouts even with differing his voice it's too distinct. It fits Bowser though, nice performance only for Pratt to do Chris Pratt voice

I heard it more in the last lines of his in the trailer, but the voice still fits. Also I didn't recognize Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, he just sounded like Toad.

Jack Black is a great voice actor

u/AnActofGold Oct 06 '22

My only real experience with his voice work is as Po from Kung Fu Panda. Great movies but Po’s voice is barely different from Black’s natural one.

u/MacDerfus Oct 06 '22

He's got decent range, and he's done live action with different character voices. In Nacho Libre he didn't sound like he did in School of Rock. Nor did he sound the same in Bernie.

Their video segments felt the same way in the Nintendo Direct as well. Jack Black? Into it. Chris Pratt? Held hostage and reading off a cue card.

Even the pre-trailer video clips were jarring with how different they felt. Chris's message felt half-assed ("stomping ...... koopas") while Jack's message filled me with confidence that the project might be good.

If they're gonna give the penguins a whole ass kingdom and feature them heavily in the trailer I fully demand that Mario accidentally yeet a baby one off a cliff (even if they're shown to be fine after)

My biggest takeaway from today is that Koji Kondo is helping with the movie’s soundtrack, which is huge. I’ve been dreading this movie for months but now I honestly can’t wait.

I hope Charles Martinet’s character actually has Mario’s current voice so it can still make it into the movie somewhere. I’m sure Pratt’s voice will end up being fine in the final product. They didn’t really give Mario much to work with in this trailer, but a slight Brooklyn accent was probably the right call. Everyone else absolutely nailed their roles so far, though.

Honestly there may be some nuance. Everything we heard is conversational. It’s when they are agitated that a true New Yorker has their accent shine. Let’s wait to see stressed Mario.
