The latest Super Mario Bros. Movie teaser lets us hear Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong for the first time. During the clip, Mario faces off against Donkey Kong in an arena of sorts — just like we’ve seen in the previous trailer — but this trailer expands on the scene.
While it seems like Mario’s on the losing side of the battle, this appears to change when the titular plumber hits a question mark block and (presumably) gets the Super Bell, transforming him into Cat Mario. Seeing Mario in his adorably fuzzy catsuit sends Donkey Kong into a laughing fit, which gives us a chance to hear Rogen’s signature laugh.
It’s nice to finally hear Rogen as Donkey Kong, and I have to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised at how well his voice (and laugh) suits the character. The film also features Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and Jack Black as Bowser. From what I’ve heard so far, it seems like Nintendo and Illumination — the animation studio working on the film — did a great job with casting.
With every new trailer that Nintendo drops, I’m getting more and more hyped for the film’s release. Luckily, we’ll just have to hold out for a few more months, as the Super Mario Bros. Movie hits theaters on April 7th.
