This is a live article and we will update this space as new details about Super Mario Bros Movie 2 come our way. This is what we know so far.
It's time to dive back into the colorful world of the Mushroom Kingdom! While "The Super Mario Bros Movie 2" will be a gem for moviegoers. Here's everything we know about the potential sequel.
The original Super Mario Bros movie was a blockbuster hit, with a staggering $1.36 billion box office collection. Given this success, a sequel seems not just possible, but probable. The Hollywood writers' strike had put things on pause, but with its resolution, the buzz about a sequel is growing. Chris Pratt, the voice of Mario, expressed his support for the writers and hinted at potential sequel plans once the dust settles.
Currently, there's no official release date for "Super Mario Bros Movie 2". The original took nearly a decade to hit the screens, but thankfully, we won't have to wait that long this time.
The sequel wouldn't be complete without Chris Pratt as Mario and Charlie Day as Luigi. Anya Taylor-Joy is also likely to return as Princess Peach, having expressed her admiration for the character. We can also anticipate the comeback of Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. And yes, Yoshi's expected to make his debut, adding more excitement to the cast!
The post-credits scene teased Yoshi's arrival, but his voice actor remains a mystery. There's also chatter about the fan-made character, Bowsette, joining the fray. Chris Pratt joked about wanting Jack Black to voice this unique character. There's also talk of introducing Wario, with Charlie Day suggesting Danny DeVito for the role.
"The Super Mario Bros Movie" ended with Mario and Luigi in the Mushroom Kingdom, setting up a seamless transition to a sequel. With Yoshi likely to be on the loose in Brooklyn and Bowser shrunken but probably plotting his return, the story possibilities are endless.
