Adapting characters from video games to movies can be challenging, especially when it comes to characters as iconic (and not very talkative) as Mario, Luigi and company.
In the film, the Super Mario Bros. characters have a lot in common with the videogames we know, but they also present some fun surprises to keep things interesting. This was possible thanks to the work of the directors and the cast of voice actors.
One of the film’s directors, Michael Jelenic, mentioned in an interview with Animation Magazine that the film’s cast had a tough job bringing to life video game characters who “don’t have much of a personality”. In video games, Super Mario Bros. characters are designed to be fun and charismatic, but in terms of character depth, they don’t have much going for them. The voice actors had to work to give them more personality and make them more appealing to audiences on the big screen.

Jelenic thinks that the reason behind this was that these actors have the ability to create iconic characters and make the public identify with them. By casting well-known actors, the film’s characters became more endearing and easily recognizable to audiences.
