Chris Pratt Says His Mario Voice Is ‘Updated’ and ‘Unlike Anything You’ve Heard’

June 24, 2022

When he was announced as the voice of Mario, Chris Pratt faced a fair amount of backlash before anything more about his role in the Super Mario Bros. animated movie was known. Having shared a post on social media at the time captioned “It’s a me, Mario”, the internet jumped to the conclusion that Pratt would be providing a stereotypical Italian accent for the character, and even John Leguizamo slammed the movie’s casting saying it was “too bad they went all white” when giving Pratt and co-star Charlie Day the titular roles. Now Chris Pratt has addressed how he is approaching the role, and says that his Mario voice is “unlike anything you’ve heard in the Mario World.”
