The trailer opens with Bowser back on his bullshit, trying to steal our stars like we’re playing “Mario Party.”

So far, Black seems to have seriously committed to his role as the terrifying Mario villain.

He is right. We are introduced to Mario as he plops out of a warp pipe into a mushroom-filled fantasy land,

We didn’t get to see other performances from the star-studded cast 

Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and former TechCrunch Disrupt speaker Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong.
