The 2022 Mario film starring Chris Pratt will not have an Italian accent, instead focusing on a “unique voice.”
The iconic Italian accent of the red and blue plumber who goes on special adventures and saves princesses from evil villains would not be used in Chris Pratt’s “Mario” film adaptation for 2022.
Instead, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor would use a unique voice to play the Italian plumber, which would be a departure from previous films.
The 2022 version of Chris Pratt’s ‘Mario’ will not have an Italian accent.
Chris Pratt is trading in his Star-Lord coat, blasters, and mask for red and blue jumpsuits as he joins Illumination Entertainment and Nintendo for a stint as the popular game plumber.
Chris Pratt, on the other hand, would not be doing the Italian accent that Mario is known for.
According to a Toofab interview with Mario co-producer Chris Meledandri, casting a non-Italian lead for the voice of the popular Nintendo character has had little impact on the film’s production.
The co-producer thought Pratt’s role as the Italian plumber would change critics’ and fans’ minds.

The actor would have a unique accent to use on the voice of Mario, according to Meledandri during the interview, and the co-producer thought it was “phenomenal.” The take on Italians playing the role in the movie would be on Charlie Day, the actor who would voice Luigi, Mario’s cousin, who is of Italian descent.
