Neither Samantha Kelly nor Kenny James have been contacted by the filmmakers, though Charles Martinet – the voice of Mario – will apparently appear in recognition of his over 30 years as the head plumber of the Mushroom Kingdom.

  • The movie is set to premiere on December 21st next year
  • Chris Pratt has been cast as Mario
  • Anya Taylor-Joy is Princess Peach
  • Jack Black will voice Bowser

Peach: “I haven’t been invited yet so I don’t know, I doubt it,” said Peach actor Samantha Kelly, “But I guess you never know.” It won't stop her from enjoying the movie anyway: “It will be fun.”

Bowser: Kenny James is less impressed with the A-list casting. “I just hope that it doesn’t turn out like the ’80's… only animated, because it could be bad.”
