The Super Mario Bros. Movie Direct November 2022 Trailer | KoopaTV's Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - I'd classify this as yikes.

For whatever reason, people are super-hyped about The Super Mario Bros. Movie, so it's a major event when Nintendo is showing the second-ever trailer of it (embedded below). For the record, I wasn't a big fan of the first-ever trailer.

Join myself, Kamek, and Witch Princess as we share our reactions to this very quick trailer and opening and ending scenes featuring the ever-deranged Shigeru Miyamoto. It's also important to watch this in the context of Shigeru Miyamoto's stated goal of The Super Mario Bros. Movie brainwashing the general population in order to enhance Nintendo's power.

[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa:
[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Watch the latest Nintendo Direct presentation to see the world premiere of The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s second trailer! No game information will be included in this Nintendo Direct."
[4:56 PM] Kamek: I am behind at work. May note be able to pay much attention unless it's the actual trailer
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I dunno how much useless non-trailer stuff they'll put into this!
[4:57 PM] Kamek: Agreed
[4:58 PM] Witch Princess: hello
[4:59 PM] Kamek: Hiya
[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Looking at this Peach mural...
[4:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Really gets me thinking...
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Anyway...
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....they're la--... nope, here we go.
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hello everyone, it's Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo.
[5:00 PM] Kamek: Computer died
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We don't care, show us the trailer.
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rip
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MIYAMOTO MUST'VE DONE IT
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It's almost finished...and... I'm not supposed to say anything else about it." Good, we don't wanna hear you.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chris Meledandri is introducing the voice actress for Princess Peach, who brings "another dimension" to her.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Anya Taylor-Joy" looks like a Ukrainian refugee.
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Miyamoto claimed she'd be "perfect."
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Seth Rogen as "Donkey Kong" I thought it was Rogan.
[5:02 PM] Kamek: Seth Rogan is not kid friendly
[5:02 PM] Kamek: Rogen
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It actually is Rogen.)
[5:03 PM] Kamek: Oooo
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That plumber has a bunch of people rooting for him in a colloseum.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Donkey Kong pwns him.

[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Good start.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: King Bowser is apparently torturing Green Plumber.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: By ripping the hairs off his moustache.
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The trailer portrays Mari0 as completely incompetent.

So Mario dies after this, right? This is the end of the movie?
(This might also be my facial expression if I have to go watch this in a theatre.)

[5:04 PM] Kamek: Ooo power ups
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....which I wish were accurate, because it'd make our lives easier. >_>
[5:04 PM] Kamek: Oh no
[5:04 PM] Kamek: Mario karts and rainbow road
[5:04 PM] Kamek: Of course
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rainbow Road appears for some reason like it's Color Splash again.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...and that's the whole trail--... Miyamoto changed shirts???
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We seized the opportunity to give him a comical design like the original character."
[5:05 PM] Kamek: I do like the donkey kong look
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wot the hell is he talking about?
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who does he think the original character is?
[5:05 PM] Kamek: Donkey kong arcade
[5:06 PM] Witch Princess: Peach's VA sounds familiar.
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So Miyamoto doesn't know that Cranky Kong and Donkey Kong are two different dudes?
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...or is he trying to retcon Rare Ltd?
[5:06 PM] Kamek: Shrug
[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, King Bowser's...uh...flying castle was pretty cool.
[5:08 PM] Witch Princess: I agree with Ludwig.
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....I dunno.
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think I see Funky Kong in the kart scene.
[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....yeah I'm not enthused by this.
[5:13 PM] Witch Princess: It's alright; I'll probably see it.
[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You may have heard Anya Taylor-Joy
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa:
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Any of these?
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (There are also several other familiar-looking-but-not-sure-if-real characters throughout this, like Lemmy Koopa riding a kart and Cranky Kong in the colosseum.)
[5:15 PM] Witch Princess: Nope, I don't recognize her.
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She sounds like a generic white girl.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dunno wot Miyamoto is talking about regarding her being great with a range and a new dimension.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But it would be in-character for Miyamoto to just completely misjudge reality.
[5:17 PM] Witch Princess: He made y'all not Bowser's kids anymore. Or he forgot.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SO IT'S CONSISTENT
[5:19 PM] Witch Princess: mmhmm
[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (the live action movie is better so far just saying)
[5:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Actually just realised Miyamoto said in his neighbourhood, there's a CAT named Mari0 and a DOG named Koopa.

Share your thoughts on The Super Mario Bros. Movie on KoopaTV's comments section below! Do you think Ludwig is seeing cameos that aren't actually there? Do you believe that Shigeru Miyamoto is trying to retcon everything you hold dear? Whatever it is, KoopaTV is interested.


  1. I thought that was Cranky Kong in the Coliseum too, but i don't think he had a voice actor assigned in that first direct. If it is Cranky Kong I really hope we get some dialogue outta him, because crotchety old men always say the darndest things.

    I would prefer Princess Peach to have a bit of a higher pitched voice, but I'm satisfied by what we got.

    1. I'm unsatisfied but it's a minor transgression compared to the so-called "protagonist"...

  2. Well, I still wanna watch it. And I'll take Peach having a more sultry voice given that they also diverted from the characterization of Bowser's voice in Super Mario Sunshine. A favorable trade, in my opinion.
