Let’s-a-go!! Excited to see our first teaser!
I’m gonna watch over on Twitch. The streams there are always a few seconds ahead of YouTube. Every second counts.

That was great! Bowser may steal the show, and not just the power stars.

As Mario would say, "Woohoo!" It's HAPPENING!!!

I liked the trailer. It could have shown more though. But it's a teaser, and that's what it has done. Can't wait to see more.

It looks pretty promising. Mario's design looks just fine in motion. And everything else looks pretty good too.

By what we saw, I wonder if this movie uses the "plumber displaced from real-world Brooklyn" story that we saw the original movie and cartoon--Mario certainly doesn't seem to be native to the mushroom kingdom.

"next week the team completes animation on the movie"

I wonder how much work Monolith Soft are doing behind the scenes. 😉 They seem to chip in on everything going.

Could be Chris Pratt's character gets sucked into the mario universe as the other characters sound just like in-game.

Charles Martinet also makes a cameo so he may actually be the voice of the Brooklyn sounding mario. Bowser definitely doesn't sound like Jack black mind.

Love it!

GameXplain got 80 minutes out of the leaked poster. I can only imagine how long their analysis will be of that trailer. 🤣

I like it. Bowser was cool, the jokes were amusing (although not laugh out loud funny) and it's very very pretty. I'll go see it.

I'll reserve judgement until later. Bowser seems ok, not enough of Mario to make a decision, that last clip of Luigi looked right and it would be nice to see Professor E. Gadd make an appearance.

I just hope there's no pop music in there anywhere. The Book of Life would have been great if they had Mexican songs instead of the US pop culture stuff. Smurfs the Lost Village also would have been better with an original score instead of dipping into pop culture.

I wish they still released movies on the same date for streaming, jerks around here have kicked me out of so many theatres I just don't bother going anymore.

I think we might just be okay. This is certainly going to push Illumination forward from their previous adaptation work. There's nothing especially concerning, and lots of potential in what's still to be shown. So glad we can move beyond the "haha Chris Pratt Mario" meme...right?

Mario didn't have much of a presence in this trailer. Need to hear more before I can judge.

I'm so glad the voice actors are actually doing voice acting and not just using thier own. This looks promising so far

Loved it. I actually enjoy what I heard of Chris Pratts voice too. It's hard to judge entirely seeing as how we only heard two lines, but I'm excited to hear more.

Jack Black is absolutely killing it as Bowser though, really impressed with the rest of the cast.

Haven’t watched it yet, but gamers in all forums seem to be happy/satisfied with this teaser. I think this means the movie is REALLY in trouble.
