Fred Armisen, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Charles Martinet, who voiced Mario in the video game franchise, will also star in the animated film.

Chris, Anya, Charlie, and Jack each acknowledged their involvement in the Super Mario Bros. movie in Instagram posts that paid homage to the original games.

“It’s-a meeeee!!!!!” Chris captioned a recent IG video, where he reminisced about playing the Super Mario Bros. arcade game at a local laundromat as a kid.

Anya simply shared side-by-side images of her and Peach looking pretty dang similar and added the character’s catchphrase in her post’s caption. “Here we gooooo,” she wrote.

Super Mario Bros. is scheduled to premiere in December 2022. What do you think of the cast?
