The internet was raving last night as news for a Super Mario Bros. animated film made its way around.
A new Super Mario Bros. animated film was announced last night. The cast is filled with A-listers, big names who could potentially be great fits for these iconic characters. But perhaps the biggest surprise is that Chris Pratt will be voicing the plumber himself, Mario.
It seems everyone on the internet was completely caught off guard by this decision, and rightfully so. Pratt isn't the first name that usually comes to mind when thinking about the character of Mario, an Italian with a penchant for mushrooms.
Check out some of the hilarious reactions/memes that were trending today.

The rest of the main cast includes the likes of Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Charlie Day as Luigi, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong.
Nobody is really sure what to make of this information yet, but it's safe to say this will be an interesting project.
