[I]t seems that Pratt as Mario is dividing a lot of people, I don't know why exactly, I've only seen him in the MCU and the Jurassic World movies but he actually did a pretty good job as Emmet in The LEGO Movie (in which Charlie Day played Benny the spaceman) and Barley in Onward.


I'm pretty skeptical about Pratt as Mario, but I'm sure Martinet will be a great mentor for him in a role as massive as this - much like how Roger Craig Smith was supportive of Ben Schwartz as Sonic - another role I was skeptical of when another celebrity became the voice of a video game character. You can tell how Nintendo tried to put its heart and soul into this project to make sure that this movie is - if not good - living up to its full potential. I wish them the best of luck in doing so.


Mentor? lol, no it don't work that way. Chris Pratt's got himself a mansion in LA, Martinet would be lucky to polish Pratt's hubcaps. There will be no passing of the torch, Pratt will just do what he thinks he can do better than Martinet. That's the most likely outcome.


The point I was trying to make exactly. I meant to say that Martinet could give him some advice on how to perfect the role. Pratt doesn’t need to try and copy Martinet, he just needs to capture the essence of the character.


The reality is with voice acting, its rare that actors are in the same room, double so with expensive ones. Chris and Charles aren't likely to meet outside of a convention, let alone a sound booth, and I don't see Chris, being in his position in the industry being someone that thinks he needs someone like Charles Martinet around.

Not wrong there. But all in all, my advice to Chris is that he doesn't need to be an exact copy of Charles. He just needs to capture the essence of who Mario is when he's playing the role. I always liked him as an actor, and I want him to do a good job.

No idea of who Peach is, but there is something weird with her face.

Sonic was simply boring and Pratt was courted as the lead but said no. We now know why it seems. Let's hope that Shitpost - The Movie has personality. The 90s Mario film at least has an identity. And if not, then who cares. There have been so many bad Nintendo adaptations, who will ever care about one more.
