Tara Strong Blasts Super Mario Bros. Movie for Recasting Original Voice Actor
Mario, the squat mustachioed hero of too many video games to count, must always be protected by his fans. Despite his corporate masters at Nintendo had no problem with the lil’ dude starring in everything from golf games to early-’90s typing tutorial software, Mario’s admirers are a bit more discerning about how he appears in media.
In a follow-up tweet, Strong wrote, “Voice actors- I’m gonna put my heart & soul in this for at least 20 years, help sell billions in merch, make the studios millions of dollars & make generations around the world happy. Hollywood- We don’t care.”
