The Super Mario Bros. Movie is an animated film created by Nintendo and distributed by Universal Pictures. The movie is based on Nintendo’s iconic video games following the Italian plumber Mario and his friends in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) voices the protagonist Mario, Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) plays Mario’s brother Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) is Princess Peach, and Jack Black (School of Rock) is the dastardly Bowser.
