Chris Pratt’s debut as Mario is like a beast that has been unleashed on the first trailer. For years Fans grow up listening to Charles Martinet as Mario’s voice actor. He have a think Italian accent and has the iconic cartoonish voice. Chris Pratt’s Mario sounded like Chris Pratt sounded like Star-Lord and Owen Grady. To make it simple he sounded like Chris Himself. He didn’t try to sound like Charles Martinet because I guess it is Production’s decision.
My speculation is that they Chris Pratt’s distinctive speaking style because he is such a well-known actor. Him trying to Sound like Mario will hide the actor recognition. Despite previous efforts to Cancel Culture him, the fact that he is now a star in multiple movie franchises is evidence that his name is still well known.
Super Mario is one of the most Iconic Video Game characters of all time. He is even in the Guinness Book of records for most popular videogame character.
When The first trailer of Suicide Squad got released years ago, Some fans got upset that Margot Robbie doesn’t sound like Arlene Sorkin or Tara Strong. Fans eventually got used to her interpretation of Harley. The trailer last year had Chris Pratt tried Italian accent but Universal Studios eventually decided to go to a different direction.

Fans are divided on how they feel about Chris Pratt’s interpretation of the iconic character. The movie is still under production so we don’t know what changes could happen in the next few months. Will they stick with this version or will he try to sound like Charlie?
