“I’m not sure if you know who I am, but I’m about to rule the world,” the fiery turtle-like creature says.

“But there’s a problem, there’s a human. Has a moustache, just like yours.”

Princess Peach later tells Mario: “There’s a huge universe out there with a lot of galaxies, they’re all counting on us – no pressure.”

The Super Mario Bros film was announced in September 2021 with an original December 2022 release date, but has since been delayed to April 2023.
