Guardians of the Galaxy's Pratt will voice Mario himself, and stars alongside Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and Charlie Day as his brother Luigi.

They will be joined by Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Jack Black as Bowser, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike, and Keegan Michael-Key as Toad.

An extended trailer for the The Super Mario Bros Movie was released late last year, giving fans a first official look at Rogen's Donkey Kong and Taylor-Joy's Princess Peach.

As we see in the trailer, Mario and Luigi must foil Bowser's plans to invade the Mushroom Kingdom with the help of Princess Peach who enlists her subjects to fight off the advancing Koopa army.

Pratt, who faced controversy over voicing the role of Mario opened up about updating the iconic character's voice.

"I worked really closely with the directors and trying out a few things and landed on something that I'm really proud of and can't wait for people to see and hear," Pratt explained.

"It's an animated voiceover narrative. It's not a live-action movie. I'm not gonna be wearing a plumber suit running all over. I'm providing a voice for an animated character, and it is updated and unlike anything you've heard in the Mario world before."

The Super Mario Bros. Movie will open in cinemas on March 31 in the UK and April 7, 2023 in the US.
