There are many questions about the upcoming Super Mario movie from Nintendo and Illumination, but one of the biggest concerns that will express Mario. The truth is told, we do not even know if Mario will be spoken or not! You can imagine that Mario wants some kind of lines in the movie, as he occasionally intervenes in the games.
While we wait to find out more about the voice of the film, it seems that the voice of Mario we all know and love can not be involved in the project. In a GalaxyCon Live interview with none other than Charles Martinet, he was asked about his thoughts on the upcoming film. Some of Charles̵
“… if they invite me to play, I go in and play with great joy and happiness.”
Now it can be taken in two different ways. The most obvious way is that Mr. Martinet has simply not been asked to state the role. The second way of looking at it, makes us take Charles’ comments as playing coy. It is likely that Charles would not be able to confirm / deny his work on the film, so the careful wording of the statement above may come around the question.
There is no doubt that fans will be upset if Mr. Martinet does not express Mario in the film, but big movies tend to go with Hollywood star power to push their projects. We just have to hang tight and see which direction Nintendo and Illumination go.
