Just after a surprise announcement earlier this week, Nintendo debuted the first trailer to its upcoming film, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,”

A film based on the video game character and series that one could argue is most responsible for the success of the video game industry

The trailer features Bowser — with an unsurprisingly spirited performance by Jack Black

We see attack on the nation of penguins, who famously appeared in the level Cool, Cool Mountain in “Super Mario 64.”

In a fight that’s over in seconds, Bowser asks who could dare challenge him

Enter Mario — voiced by Chris Pratt with all the passion of a Chris Pratt character

It is sounding exactly like Chris Pratt and not at all like the chirpy, “woo hoo” voice of the games, where he is voiced by Charles Martinet

“It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to become Mario,” said Chris Pratt, in a statement aired before the trailer

The film appears to show Mario’s first arrival to the Mushroom Kingdom, mirroring the “isekai” tradition of Japanese science fiction of storytelling

We see a stranger from another land magically teleports into another unfamiliar world for the sake of adventure
