Chris Pratt’s Mario Voice Baffles Fans After First Listen: ‘holy S— It’s Literally Just Chris Pratt’s Voice’
The trailer for Universal Pictures and Nintendo’s “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” has debuted, revealing the first time we’ve heard Chris Pratt’s Mario voice.
Earlier this year, the actor told Variety that he “worked really closely with the directors” to perfect Mario’s voice, adding, “[We tried] out a few things and landed on something that I’m really proud of.”
So, how does Pratt’s Mario voice sound? In the trailer, he only has two lines of dialogue (“What is this place?” and “Mushroom Kingdom, here we come!”), but it’s enough to send social media into a frenzy with reactions.
Many users thought Pratt’s Mario voice was too similar to Pratt’s own speaking voice, which caused confusion because the actor had previously described the voice as “unlike anything” fans had heard before.
“It’s an animated voiceover narrative,” Pratt explained about the role to Variety. “This isn’t a live-action film.” I’m not going to be running around in a plumber suit. I’m providing a voice for an animated character, and it’s fresh and unlike anything you’ve heard before in the Mario universe.”

“I just showed the boys the Mario trailer,” film critic Robbie Cullin of The Telegraph wrote. “I’ll be laughing for months, if not years, because of the way they turned around and looked at me when Chris Pratt’s voice piped up.”
“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” also stars Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike, addition to Pratt.
