I like the actors for Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Toad, but Chris Pratt as Mario is certainly a choice.

Sounds more fitting than Chris Pratt as Mario

Yeah... so a Mario film doesn't need big voice actors to sell it, they know that right?

Coming from someone who used to get excited about Chris Pratt being cast in movies, it just feels like he's a bit overused and doesn't really seem to fit.

Chris Pratt voice doesn't match Mario, sorry but ths is a miscast, if you've got an animated movie you really do not need famous people to do voicing.

Out of all the actors that were cast for the live action Mario film, Chris Pratt is one of them.

I think Anya Taylor-Joy would be great as Peach! Not so sure about Chris Pratt as Mario though...

Looks more like a cast of Sausage Party. That will be very interesting to see.

For a moment there I forgot this is animated movie and was pretty much in WTF sentiment...after realizing my mistake I'm somewhat ambivalent about lot of that cast, but can't say I watched anything voiced by most of them.

I missed that as well. The only previous voice-acting role I can’t think of for Chris Pratt is the Pixar film Onward.

His IMDB says that he also voiced a character in the Lego movies 1 and 2.

Who honestly thought Jack Black as Bowser would work? That's even worse than Dennis Hopper.

before u give chris pratt the benefit of the doubt!
people were sceptical with heath ledgers portrayal of the joker before the movie hasn't even released yet,
