Chris Pratt has been roped in for the cast of the upcoming animated movie, Mario and will be in the role of the main lead. And the internet seems to have lost its mind as it cannot handle this information. Nintendo has kept their video game characters out of TV and film.

This changed when Illumination began developing an animated Super Mario film that will be based on Nintendo’s most famous character. There aren’t many details that are provided of the untitled movie. This is why it was such a big shock when Nintendo announced the A-list cast and release for the film.

Many users were supportive of the actor being the main lead, but many also questioned how the actor would pull off the character’s central Italian accent. Some tweets criticizing the decision and some considering it as a dream come true started surfacing. Others, however, were simply taking it as an opportunity to create memes and jokes out of the situation.
