Twitterbound fans weighing in over Mario’s fast-paced escapade were shocked and thrilled to see the Rainbow Road and generally pleased with how Mario looks and acts during the new trailer for “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” And some of them have even been won over by Chris Pratt’s voice acting.
“YALL DIDNT HAVE TO GIVE US RAINBOW ROAD AND YET YOU DID?! THE MARIO KART REPRESENTATION?!” said @thebeepthemeep, sprinkling their comment with a series of crying face emojis. They joined fans like @AxolotlSimp, who adored everything they saw in the trailer and had praise for Pratt, specifically the delivery of one line in particular. “And Mario’s lil’ “Wahoo” on the Rainbow Road, absolutely adorable!” they concluded. That said, not everyone is sold on Pratt as Mario just yet, but thanks to that line delivery, it does seem more fans are open to the idea of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star voicing the video game plumber.
Other fans couldn’t resist making a joke or two about Mario riding eternal, shiny, and chrome. “Mad Max: Rainbow Road,” tweeted @rpepper.
