‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ took the world by storm a few months ago when it was released, as numerous theaters worldwide presented the movie. The iconic character of the gaming industry known as Super Mario once again embarks on an exciting adventure in this new movie, as he has to save Princess Peach, collaborate with his good old partner Luigi to defeat Bowser, wrestle Donkey Kong, engage in a kart race, and more. Simple, right?
In other words, the new ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ of 2023 seems to present the legendary plumber in all situations for which he is mostly known. The movie was received generally well by the public, and it has also been in theaters in 3D format. While the original voices are in English and famous actors are part of the main cast, such as Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Jack Black, the movie has been dubbed in many other languages, depending on the country where it ran in theaters.
It wasn’t long until the fans asked the million-dollar question at that point: “When will the new movie with Super Mario appear on Netflix?”. Luckily, after a long wait, we finally have an answer to that question!
‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ arrives on Netflix on December 3
In less than a week, the new ‘Super Mario Bros. Movie’ will be available for those who have an active subscription on Netflix, one of the most famous streaming platforms available. The information is revealed by Vulture, and as you probably already know, Netflix doesn’t offer a free trial period. In other words, you have no choice but to purchase one of the subscription plans of the streaming service if you want to watch the latest Super Mario movie on it.
In the new movie featuring the funny Italian plumber that we all know from video games, he will be voiced by Chris Pratt, an actor known for his good performances in film series such as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Jurassic.’
The role of the main antagonist of the film, meaning the legendary and terrifying Bowser, who’s madly in love with Princess Peach, will be taken by Jack Black, an actor famous for comedic roles. We’ve seen him in unforgettable comedy movies such as “School of Rock,” which was launched 20 years ago, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” from 2017, where he appeared alongside Dwayne Johnson, or “Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny” from 2006, where he had to find a powerful guitar pick to become a great rockstar.
Super Mario has a history of four decades
Super Mario was mainly only a video game character, but given its charm and rapid rise to popularity, it was only a matter of time until we would see it in cartoons, movies, and so on. The very first game in which Super Mario was the protagonist came out in 1983, and it was simply known as Mario Bros. It was released as an arcade game. A bit later, in 1985, the legendary plumber appeared in Super Mario Bros., a game for the 8-bit console known as Nintendo Entertainment System (abbreviated as NES).
In other words, Super Mario left behind an unfathomable legacy, as it appeared in about 200 more games after its initial release 40 years ago. That’s a truly incredible performance for a video game character.
