I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get even more excited for the new Super Mario Bros. movie set to hit the silver screen this April. The movie is set to tell what appears to be an origin story of sorts for the titular plumbers while giving longtime fans a heavy dose of nostalgia and touching on several of Mario’s adventures over the years – Mario Kart, Odyssey, elements of Mario Galaxy, and much more. Last we heard from the film was the brief snippet that debuted during The Game Awards in December, but a new brief trailer has now been released. Head below for a closer look and more details.

New Super Mario Bros. movie trailer

The previous official movie clip that launched showed Mario and Toad making their way through the bustling marketplace of the “big city” before zipping through some pipes and landing on Princess Peach’s doorstep. The trailer before that was more wide-ranging, with hints at the Mario Galaxy universe, Mario Kart racing, Princess Peach in action, and a brief look at Seth Rogen’s take on Donkey Kong.

Mario and Donkey were in some sort of battle arena facing off against one another, and this latest trailer seems to be expanding on that scene. Not only do we get to hear Rogen’s voice acting for the first time in a major way, but the new Super Mario Bros. movie trailer also gives us a brief look at the catsuit that was introduced in Super Mario 3D World. After getting slapped around by Donkey Kong, it appears that Mario jumps up to bonk one of those world-famous Question Mark Blocks to reveal a Super Bell – the power-up from the games that imbues Mario with catlike abilities and an adorable matching suit.

Check it out below:

Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (collaborators on Teen Titans Go!, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies) from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru), the film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
