calling it now, the mario movie will be:
an origin story showing marios early years
he will not have a moustache at the beginning of the movie
mario and luigi are hassled at their construction job by foreman spike. they find an entrance to the mushroom kingdom and nobody believes them
at some point mario will yell at luigi and then apologize but it'll be too late. there'll be like 5 minutes of the movie where they both convince themselves they don't need each other but find out that family is the best friend you'll ever have or something
charles martinets cameo will be as god. mario will black out at his lowest point and be taught a lesson by an otherworldly omnipotent figure voiced by charles martinet.
toad will be the awkward guy that tries to fit in with everyone else he'll be like "haha yeah that's cool guys let's do that! totally yknow haha". that'll be his joke
bowser gets a musical number

its so funny how they decided to announce the mario cast during a nintendo direct. like, the only people watching those are nintendo fans, which is exactly the opposite of who they were thinking about when casting those people
like they just went and decided to break the news first to the people who would be the least likely to be supportive of it. nintendo really knows how to celebrate out of touch thursday

They didn't write the Mario movie and say "you know who would be perfect to play Mario? Chris Pratt!" No, they picked Chris Pratt for marketability and name recognition and wrote a new Mario around him. I guarantee you this version of Mario will sound and act identical to every other Chris Pratt character; they all have the exact same sense of humor, the same dopey confidence, they all feel like they were written by the same person for the same purpose. You don't cast Chris Pratt, you typecast him. He's not playing Mario, he's playing himself in red overalls.
