Chris Pratt Says His Mario Voice Is “Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Heard”



Echoing similar remarks from a producer of the upcoming Super Mario movie made last fall, actor Chris Pratt – who will voice the titular plumber – said in a recent interview that his portrayal would be “different from anything you have never heard”. Talk with Variety to promote his upcoming Amazon Prime Video series The Terminal List, Pratt also briefly touched on the Nintendo film.

“I worked very closely with the directors to try a few things and landed on something that I’m really proud of and can’t wait for people to see and hear,” Pratt said. “It’s an animated voice-over story. It’s not a live-action movie. I’m not going to wear a plumber costume everywhere. I’m giving an animated character a voice, and it’s updated and is unlike anything you’ve ever heard in the world of Mario.”

In November, Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri called Pratt’s voice for Mario “phenomenal”, adding that he “can’t wait for people to hear it”. Meledandri, who is Italian-American, also told Deadline this week that “When people hear Chris Pratt’s performance, critics [against Pratt as a non-Italian person] will evaporate, maybe not entirely…people like to voice their opinions, as they should.”

After being cast in September of last year, Pratt said he had a special connection to Super Mario Bros. As a kid living in Lake Stevens, Washington, he played the original arcade game at the laundromat. According to Pratt, he rarely had a quarterback to play, so he stole them from a wishing well.

The Untitled Mario Movie is slated for an April 2023 release.
