Yes, Chris Pratt (Guardian of the galaxy, Jurassic World, Avengers: Endgame) Took the role of Mario, leaving Mario’s usual voice actor Charles Martinet with a mysterious guest role that has yet to be revealed. Pratt, who talks to fans on Instagram, shared his memory of playing Super Mario Bros. in an arcade when he was young and said, “Dreams come true.”

As you can see, Pratt also voice For Mario, but he still can’t share how it sounds. He and the team say they’re working hard, so it’s interesting to hear what happens at a later date.
