Super Mario Bros. fans are in for a treat as Chris Pratt and Charlie Day, stars of the upcoming movie, have hinted at a sequel that draws inspiration from two beloved titles in the franchise: Mario Golf and Luigi’s Mansion. In an exclusive interview with CBR, the actors expressed their excitement about a Mario Golf-themed sequel, with Pratt even suggesting they could conduct research at Augusta, while Day chimed in, “That’s right. I’m into that.” But that’s not all. The film’s post-credits scene will offer a tantalizing glimpse into the filmmaker’s vision for the potential follow-up. Pratt teased, “There’s a post-credit sequence that gives you a taste of what the sequel could be about. And that gets me very, very excited.”
As for the rumored inclusion of Luigi’s Mansion in the sequel, Pratt gave a nod to the popular Gamecube game, saying, “I think that would be great.” While some fans initially expressed skepticism about Pratt’s casting as the iconic plumber, the actor has been winning them over with his commitment to the role. In a recent talk show appearance, Pratt performed a spot-on Mario voice, earning praise on social media. The co-director of the Super Mario Bros. Movie, Aaron Horvath, has also defended the choice, noting that Pratt’s portrayal of a blue-collar hero with a lot of heart perfectly captures the essence of Mario in their film. All in all, it looks like the Super Mario Bros. sequel has the potential to be a hole-in-one with fans of the iconic video game franchise.
