The teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Illumination and Nintendo film ‘The Super Mario Bros.Movie,’ which is set to hit theatres on April 27, 2023, was released yesterday. Even before the official trailer teaser was released, the crew had to deal with allegations of character face leaks that had yet to be released or revealed officially.
Pictures of what appears to be Anna Taylor-Princess Joy’s Peach have now surfaced on the internet, following the alleged reveal of Super Mario a day before the trailer.
What is Anna Taylor-joy’s Role in the Super Mario Movie?
The reportedly leaked images clearly show the image of Princess Peach, the iconic monarch heroine of the film who will be voiced by actress Anna Taylor-Joy. The leaked image did not disappoint fans, as it depicts a very well-designed Princess Peach who lives up to her portrayal in the original game.
The only noticeable difference in the image is the well-thought-out and intricate detailing. The Princess’s hair appears more realistic in the picture that was leaked via Twitter.
The Twitter-leaked Photo of Anna Taylor-joy as Princess Peach
Before the official release of the teaser trailer on October 6, 2022, the only image released was a poster portraying Mario looking up to the palace on top of a hill in the Mushroom Kingdom. The film’s producers attempted but failed to keep Mario’s face a surprise until the very end.
The same thing happened with Anna Taylor-Princess Joy’s Peach, whose photo was also leaked on Twitter. The October 6 teaser trailer transports us to the beautiful world of the Mushroom Kingdom while also providing a clear picture of our hero Mario and his adversary, the evil turtle king Bowser.
Aside from the image and design of Mario, which was criticized for the inappropriate proportion of his back in the first poster, fans were also concerned about the casting of Chris Pratt as Mario.
While there were concerns that the American actor would not be able to capture the plumber hero’s iconic Italian accent, the reaction from fans after the teaser aired was as expected.
The Super Mario Movie Trailer Is Now Available
Mario has only two dialogues in the 2-minute 25-second trailer, which are “What is this place?” and “The Mushroom Kingdom, here we come.” Despite the fact that the role was minor, fans on social media were outspoken in their belief that Chris Pratt simply sounded plain and like Chris Pratt.
People are curious about the preparations that the actor mentioned he had for the role. At the same time, the trailer focused more on the anti-hero, Bowser, and actor Jack Black is well-known for his portrayal of the iconic villain in the film.
People say that, unlike Chris Pratt, the actor has clearly taken the role to heart and has given his all to bring the spirit of the villain to life by doing complete justice to the iconic character.
The film, which is currently titled ‘Super Mario Bros. Movie,’ was announced in September 2017. Nintendo, the Japan-based multinational video game company that created the game Super Mario, and Illumination, an American animation studio founded in 2007, made the announcement.
It’s also been nearly a year since the movie’s voice cast was revealed. Other notable cast members of the film include Charlie Day as Luigi, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, in addition to Chris Pratt as Mario, Anna Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and Jack Black as Bowser. The film, directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, is set to hit theatres on April 27, 2023.
