A new trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie dropped on Tuesday during a Nintendo Direct virtual presentation.

Initially expected to arrive this December but now set to hit theaters next April, Mario Bros. includes a star-studded voice talent roster led by Chris Pratt (Mario), Seth Rogen (Donkey Kong), Jack Black (Bowser), Charlie Day (Luigi), Keegan-Michael Key (Toad), and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach.

The previously released Super Mario Bros. teaser introduced audiences to much of the aforementioned cast, but the latest look finally gives fans their first glimpse of Taylor-Joy’s Peach.

“There’s a huge universe out there. With a lot of galaxies,” Peach tells Mario to end the trailer. “They’re all counting on us. No pressure!”

The actress known for The Witch and The Queen’s Gambit spoke with MTV News about The Super Mario Bros. Movie. While she admitted to not being the biggest fan of video games as a child, that all changed when she was cast as Princess Peach. 

“Once I booked the job and my friends were so excited [for it], we bought all of, you know, the Mario Kart world and we really went for it,” said Taylor-Joy, 26. “My favorite way to play is at the arcade, though. I’ve now become, like, a hardcore adult arcade individual. … I don’t think I’ve ever had friends be more excited for anything I have ever done.”

I think it’s really cool that since it seems that Mario is playing a fish out of water role here that Peach is the one taking charge against Bowser and being a real leader

Could be the best dynamic in this movie tbh pic.twitter.com/ZUEKs7XZnr

luigi being the damsel in distress in the mario movie instead of peach is such a genius decision, whoever in the writer's room decided on that one deserves a raise... giving us a girlboss AND a pathetic meow meow man... they know what gen z wants.
