A new trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been released, and with it comes our first look at Princess Peach, Donkey Kong, and a slew of other additions that fans will recognize.

The trailer gives us our first proper look at illuminations take on the famous franchise as Mario sets off on an adventure alongside Princess Peach and Toad, seemingly taking them across the Mushroom Kingdom and beyond. It also featured many references and callbacks from Mario’s long history, including plenty of visuals inspired by the games, with Mario tackling a classic obstacle course reminiscent of his first adventures.

The movie version of Princess Peach, voiced by Anya Taylor-Joy, won’t be a damsel-in-distress and looks just as capable, if not more than Mario this time. Illumination also worked in Rainbow Road and karting right at the end of the trailer, all topped off with the classic jump sound effect and Mario’s signature “Wahoo” for good measure. You can watch the trailer below to feel all the nostalgia yourself.

We also got our first chance to hear Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Charlie Day as Luigi, and a better look at Chris Pratt’s take on the mustached hero, which sounded better than expected.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be Nintendo’s first movie release since 1993’s Super Mario Bros. It will be released in partnership with Illumination, the studio behind the Minions and Despicable Me movie franchises.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is being co-produced by Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri and by Super Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. It is slated to release on April 7, 2023, and hopefully, with its success, we could see more from Mario and other Nintendo IPs make their way to the big screen.
