Chris Pratt Reacts to Super Mario Bros. Controversy

In fact, from the very first trailer, The Guardians of the Galaxy actor has come under heavy criticism from fans, who blame him for not trying to get close to the Mario we know from Nintendo games.. That is to say, not having transformed his voice sufficiently to resemble that of Charles Martinet, therefore the official voice actor of the character. And if he understands the reaction of the fans, he has a message for them:

You know, go see the movie. Go see the movie, then we’ll talk about it. I really think once you’ve seen the movie, and even, you know what, in all honesty, I think you should probably watch it twice.

To which the actor adds:

I understand. (…) This is the soundtrack of your youth. You don’t want someone coming in and cynically destroying it with a film like a cash bomb. I completely understand that you didn’t want that to happen, and there are so many hearts, souls, and minds dedicated to making sure that doesn’t happen.

I’m not sure that will be enough to quell the frenzy of gamers for the foreseeable future. But whatever, if there is a point on which he is right, it is that it is better to wait to see the film to form a definitive opinion. And we won’t have to wait much longer for that since Super Mario Bros will land in our dark rooms from April 5. In the meantime, you can still watch or re-watch the final trailer unveiled during a Nintendo Direct this month.
