During a brief Nintendo Direct today, the final trailer for the Super Mario Bros. Movie was revealed. Ahead of the trailer, cast members Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Seth Rogan and Keegan Michael Key briefly discussed how overlooked Luigi is. This was followed by Anya-Taylor Joy and Jack Black trying to proclaim that Mario 10 is actually “Bowser Day” before series creator Shigeru Miyamoto declared that Mario 10 is for everyone.

Starting with Luigi in a cage (which could be a reference to Super Mario RPG), the trailer showed some action from Mario and DK running through obstacles, and gave us a look at the Rainbow Road sequence that was previously teased.
The film’s directors explained how they wanted to recreate the sense of danger felt by the famous Mario Kart Track embodies, which likely means the set piece will be seen towards the end of the film.
Miyamoto then announced that post-production of the Super Mario Bros. Movie is complete and localization for other regions has begun. For fans near Nintendo NYC, a replica of Mario’s boots from the film will be on display in the store starting March 10, 2023. Everything seems to be fine for this film.
While some of the humor might be geared more towards children, this is Super Mario Bros. Movie could become an all-time classic. That’s a major departure from the original film, which both started the trend for video game adaptations and gave them a bad rap for decades.
