The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2 will make its highly anticipated debut on April 3, 2026.

That being said, the movie has no official title yet. It is being unanimously called The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2. Hopefully, Miyamoto and Meledandri will let us know as time progresses.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2: Cast

The first movie did a great job of introducing an array of characters to the viewers. Now, there’s a good foundation for the upcoming film. 

A Super Mario project is incomplete without our favorite brother duo. Hence, you can anticipate Mario (played by Chris Pratt) and Luigi (played by Charlie Day) to return.

While the actors from the first original movie loved playing their characters, it is still uncertain if they will return for the sequel. On one such occasion, Anya Taylor Joy expressed sentiments of pride and inspiration over voicing Princess Peach. Hopefully, her character will be explored further. She also talked about how she would love to continue with a spin-off centered on Princess Peach.

Moreover, the last time we saw Bowser (played by Jack Black), he was defeated. To many, it may look like he has been caged, and his role is over. But knowing his villainous nature, he can’t be put down that easily. Now, it remains to be seen how he’ll make his comeback and continue terrorizing the Mario Universe.

One way of him returning is by the Lumalee theory. Despite what happened to him, Bowser can still return with the help of Lumalee’s powers. Acting as a parasite, he can monopolize Lumalee’s powers and eventually use them to give rise to more galaxies.

Other potential characters include Keegan-Michael Key as Toad and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. What about Yoshi’s arrival? According to the post-credits scenes of the first movie, it was confirmed that Yoshi would return in the sequel. However, the details of whoever will voice his character are still under wraps.

Jack Black’s Views About the Upcoming Movie

Jack Black, a key cast member, has shared his thoughts. Even though his character is currently caged, there’s potential for him to return. Black emphasized that the movie could adopt a musical stance and revolve around Bowser’s revenge. However, whether Bowser will return as the prominent villain is yet to be confirmed.

There is space for Wario and Waluigi to squeeze in and change the universe’s trajectory. Jack initially proposed the idea of the duo being part of the movie. The actor even went as far as saying that Pedro Pascal should voice Wario if the duo ends up becoming part of the franchise.

One confirmed character is Yoshi. Judging from this, he will bring a lot of lore with him. The makers have yet to confirm how they will incorporate his role into the plot.

What’s a good story without a villain on the verge of destroying it all? Other potential candidates who can replace Bowser are his children, the Koopalings, Shadow Mario, who is Bowser Jr. in disguise, Subcon tyrant Wart, and the mischievous astronaut Tatanga. 

We have plenty of time to receive solid updates about its plot. So, patience is the key!
