Why Super Mario Cast Chris Pratt As The Beloved Plumber, According To Illumination’s CEO


Nintendo fans were excited when it was announced that the video game company had signed a deal with Despicable Me creators Illumination to turn game icon Mario into an animated film. That excitement turned to confusion from many when the cast of the Mario movie was announced and it was revealed that title character would be voiced by Chris Pratt. But the head of Illumination swears Pratt is the perfect choice.

Chris Pratt has starred in major movie blockbusters from Guardians of the Galaxy to Jurassic World and he’s voiced animated characters in films like The LEGO Movie. Pratt certainly has a lot of fans but it has to be said that he’s not the first actor fans would think of when dream casting an Italian plumber from Brooklyn. However, speaking with Variety, Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri says that the studio thought Pratt would make a great Mario, and so far, he believes the actor has done exactly that, saying…

Chris was cast because we felt he could give a great performance as Mario. And now that we’ve done about 15 recording sessions, and the movie is three-quarters done, I sit here and say that I love his performance as Mario…. I think we’re gonna be just fine. Especially because (Pratt) he’s given such a strong performance.
