Nintendo’s chief designer Shigeru Miyamoto told Japanese outlet Nintendo Dream Web that the Japanese script for “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” is slightly different because it was localized for Japanese audiences.
The Japanese version of the movie features the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mario), Tasuku Hatanaka (Luigi), Arisa Shida (Princess Peach), Kenta Miyake (Bowser) and Tomokazu Seki (Toad).
The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, was released in the U.S. and over 60 other markets worldwide on April 5.
The animated film, starring Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Anya Taylor-Joy, Seth Rogen and Keegan-Michael Key, has so far grossed over $871 million worldwide.
The Nintendo-Illumination-Universal collaboration also notably bested Disney‘s “Frozen II” by scoring the biggest animated opening of all time.
