We finally got our first look The movie Super Mario Bros in the Nintendo Direct trailer launch, and now we know what the plumber and some familiar Mushroom Kingdom faces look like in movie form – namely Bowser, Kamek, Toad and Luigi.

We got a good look at Mario’s backside in the recent teaser poster, and a leak earlier this week gave us a look at his movie face. But now we had the chance to see him in motion in this movie trailer and the real question is whether Nintendo fans think this new look ‘Movie Mario’ is any good or not. After all, his initial revelation Sonic the Hedgehog for his 2020 film caused such a backlash that it sent the directors back to the drawing board, reshooting the finished scenes at great expense to redesign Sonic and appease fans who were not was impressed with the results of Sonic’s Hollywood transformation.

Lighting (the Minions studio making the Mario movie in collaboration with Nintendo) will have paid a lot of attention to this costly disaster, and while we’re sure no one will have such a dramatic reaction to this slightly less chubby, slightly more realistically analog take on biggest gaming hero…he’s definitely slightly different from the mario we know and love from the games!

Despite the initial difficulty, the new look is winning us over right now, and we’re interested in seeing more of Mario (and very more about Luigi, who was glimpsed at the end of the trailer) in the upcoming film.

Here’s a quick comparison between Movie Mario and Game Mario:

But what can we do you I think so? A little weird, but will you get used to it? An improvement; ‘Ugly Sonic’ again? Let us know in the poll below and feel free to elaborate in the comments.
