After a first teaser image, the time had finally come last night and we got to see the first moving images of the Super Mario Bros. film. There was also a first taste of the voices of Mario and Bowser on the ears.
You can speak! As promised, the first trailer for the Super Mario Bros. film adaptation was shown at the New York Comic Con. But before you think about the live-action adaptation of the material from 1993 because of flashbacks, stop! Because it is an animated film in which Nintendo is working closely with the renowned studio Illumination (Despicable Me, Minions).
