It's-a here: The first Super Mario Bros. Movie trailer was just released.

View this video on YouTube

You may have heard rumblings of this movie beforehand given that, A) It is a movie of a beloved franchise, B) The cast is absolutely stacked, and, C) Said cast features Chris Pratt as Mario, except he's not doing an Italian accent.

So, BuzzFeed attended the New York Comic-Con debut of the trailer — and Jack Black even made a surprise appearance to give us all some intel on the upcoming movie.



Ahead of the trailer viewing, videos of Shigeru Miyamoto (Nintendo) and Chris Meledandri (Illumination) popped up to say that animation will be done next week. Scoring will begin in 11 days, and the movie's score will even include plenty of nods to the original games.



The appearance of Chris Pratt's (virtual) face then got a big ol' cheer in the room, as he said that it was an "honor to voice the man" and "a lifelong dream" to take on the role of the red-hatted lad.

Enter the trailer! We see Bowser burn down some ice buildings in what appears to be a reference to Li'l Penguin Lost in Super Mario 64. It must be said: The animation looks gorgeous.



We also see — and hear — Chris' Mario begin his adventure in the Mushroom Kingdom. There's not a ton to go off, as he mainly just says "What is this place?", but I'm sure we'll see plenty more in months to come. Whether or not this is a good thing is up to you!



Then the voice of Bowser himself, Jack Black, hit the Comic-Con stage for a quick Q&A about the movie. He began by saying that it was "a lot of pressure" to take on the role, but that it was "pretty rad" to be doing it.



He also added that he did a ton of research, the only way that was possible — by playing even more of the games.

As for his depiction of Bowser, it's one with "a sensitive side" but "furious with rage" — so take from this what you will. There will also be a "musical side" to Bowser in this version, so get ready for the "heavy metal" side of Jack to make an appearance.



As for the online reaction, it, uhh, was fairly focussed on one thing:

You can hear Mario just by looking at him, knowing what Mario sounds like, anticipating him to speak and just hearing a normal guy voice is unerving lmao
