Once again the long-awaited film of Super Mario He continues to leave us more content. We bring more information ahead of its premiere.

Super Mario Bros.: The Movie

Nintendo offered a first Nintendo Direct of its film with its first teaser trailer, available in Spanish and Latin Spanish. Then a second Nintendo Direct was shared with another trailer that you can also see in these languages. And later we had another Nintendo Direct with the final trailer in Spanish and Latin Spanish.

Now we have been able to learn more than interesting statements from Anya Taylor-Joy, the actress who voices Peach in the English version of this film. In a recent meeting with SlashFilm, she has shared the challenge of breaking clichés like the “damsel in distress”.

“When I was asked to play Peach, I was A) extremely honored, but B) a little hesitant just because, in my head, before I met everyone, I was like, ‘Oh, I really want to do this, but I only want to do it if it’s a modern princess, not just a princess, but a ruler,” shares Taylor-Joy. “She really is a leader. I felt that we could create a more three-dimensional character that had its own personality.”

“I was so excited when I met everyone for the first time…. because everyone agreed on this. We all wanted to do the same thing,” she adds. “That turned out to be a very exciting process because there are times when I wanted to look at video games and be inspired by Peach. But just with video games you couldn’t make the whole movie. He is now a three-dimensional character. You have to put colors in his voice. I feel very grateful that they supported me every step of the way and that there was no setback.”
