There are no other hints at what the teaser will have or how long it will be. The corresponding tweet only had a Question Block and the aforementioned dates, once again confirming its April 7, 2023 premiere date.
The press release, however, also noted of the film’s new name: The Super Mario Bros. It’s a slight change, only adding a “The” to the title, but it’s one that the project didn’t previously have.
This teaser will likely unveil Chris Pratt’s Mario voice, which has been a constant topic of discussion. Alongside Pratt, the rest of the cast includes Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike (which was previously announced). Mario’s traditional voice actor, Charles Martinet, will also be involved and have “surprise cameos in the movie.”
