It’s-a me, IP administration! In a Nintendo Direct presentation this afternoon, the online game firm introduced that it’s going to launch its animated Mario film subsequent Christmas, with a voice solid that 1) is full chaos and a pair of) options precisely zero Italians. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that Chris Pratt will tackle the function of the long-lasting mustachioed plumber himself, with Charlie Day as his brother/sidekick/unpaid intern Luigi. Princess Peach shall be performed by Anya Taylor-Pleasure, and (okay, this one is definitely actually good casting) Jack Black as Bowser. Rounding out the solid are Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike. Seth Rogen and Fred Armisen will seem as Donkey Kong and his grandfather Cranky Kong, respectively. (What the Kong household is doing crashing a Mario film stays to be seen.)

We guess we should always all simply be grateful Elon Musk and Grimes aren’t anyplace to be discovered on that solid listing. However hey Nintendo, when you needed a Hollywood Chris to play Mario, licensed Italian hunk Chris Messina was RIGHT THERE.
