      @Riddle RoseHearts But they have other trait to make them theirs. Rainbow Dash is the atheletic and don’t think twice while Applejack is the straight man of the group.

      @Khanh Nguyen ah so Applejack and Rainbow Dash being both Tomboys while also being vastly different is wrong and only 1 character can be a tomboy so by that logic only 1 woman in the entirw world should be a tomboy the rest should just be pretty little princesses that need saving all the time by a man

    Bowser to me is literally a perfect character design because he can look both very menacing and fearful, but when it's time for a spin-off for him or him to be likeable, he you very much look the part have a good guy or at least a likeable character.
    And giving Bowser a sort of "Hades" treatment in this movie, being the comic relief and a rather serious threat, is perfect for his design

      I’ve loved Bowuigi since before people started to ship it because of the first trailer. I’m not complaining though, that just means more sweet as all heck fanfics and art of Bowser and Luigi being cute with Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings.

      @Destinyi 100% agree with this, i don't like the changes in her voice and personality, it just doesn't feel like peach. it feels more like a generic heroine character from every single movie and sounds and looks like it too, i love peach but this just isn't her, now she doesn't have to be completely defenseless to be like peach, i just feel like they changed her way too much and her bigger lips and longer lashes, yellow-er hair, softer voice, and more simplistic crown in the games just have way more charm to them in my opinion.

      @IDK bro it’s genius, if you landed in some random realm and were asked to save a princess you don’t even know, what reason would you have to even do so? But if it was someone you’re close to or a loved one, of course you would! That’s what makes it more sensical in the film, plus we get a new interpretation of peach as a bonus

    The thing is in the movie, Mario and Luigi are from the "reel" world. It kinda plays out as an "origin" story for them. So it makes sence Mario doesn't "fit" this world unlike in the games because he isn't from it.

    One thing I don’t think people thought about when we first heard Illumination was the studio making the movie was that they might solely be there for the animation quality. Illumination, however bad you think their movies are, has some extremely good animation quality and so if they do the visuals while Nintendo works on the story then the movie is going to absolutely amazing, and with the trailers it feels like this is all but confirmed

    • The_Godbodor

      @TheHale _ I was more so saying the general quality was good, not that Illumination’s art direction is good. With the Mario environment, compared to a basic urban environment like Despicable Me, they have a much more creative art direction to use their quality textures and design for (which is clearly the case looking at the released trailers)

      I’m not really a fan of illumination, or even their style. All their movies look exactly the same.

      @P there’s literally examples of how she’s not always like that in this video. In the RPG games she often sticks up for herself and is shown as a strong yet caring leader for her kingdom, in the comics she lead an army to save Mario from Bowser’s castle, in Mario Odyssey once she finally got free of Bowser’s unfair advantage of his brute force she rejected his advances and left him on the moon, it’s entirely possible for her to be strong, independent and feminine all at once and that’s exactly what feminism pushes for, for women to be whatever they want.
      It doesn’t seem to be just a tropey strong independent woman who don’t need no man situation, it’s actual character development for her based on the rarer side of her in games to make her interesting for a 90 minute film that would be boring otherwise. If I’m wrong then it’s not feminisms fault, it’s just bad soulless writing.

    Something to point out about Bowser's movie design: His shoulders have a green gradient to them. Not sure if it's a reference to his sprite from Super Mario World having green arms, or just a way to have a more natural transition between the orange body and green head, but I think it actually looks good.

    I think they were trying to make Donkey Kong look more like Donkey Kong Jr. which I noticed the second I saw him, and I loved that! The design itself doesn't look bad, probably about the same as Mario imo, but knowing that he looks similar to the original DK Jr. makes me love it even more. Because of that, my rating of 7 goes up to an 8 for his movie design.

    I think Toad in particular is incredible, everything from the more clearly visible legs to the voice, it makes it feel like a “realistic” version of Toad, like the one we know is a cartoon character, and this is the true version. The others are all pretty clearly stylized, and I do like most of them, but this is probably the only design I’d advocate to put in the actual games.

    Bowser’s design actually does have a lot of physical changes. Ones I noticed right off the bat were his tail got more spikes (2 in the game design, 3 or 4 in the movie), his mouth got more teeth (12 in the game, about 22 in the movie). Then on closer inspection, the green skin of his head bleeds down onto his shoulders, instead of stopping entirely under the neck collar. And the red rings around the spikes on his shell were turned into yellow/orange jagged growths sprouting out of the shell. I agree, it’s a great design, but there are several real physical changes to it, more than any other character I’d say.

    The reason that his hair and eyebrows don’t match is because it is a very common trait among Italian immigrants. I come from heavy Italian descent, but the red hair gene was introduced a couple generations back. When it doesn’t manifest on a man’s head, it will manifest in his facial hair. It’s really interesting actually and totally justifies Mario’s appearance.

    Best part about Peach is that they used her Mario Kart biker outfit. Although I think the best redesign is Bowser's. Peach is a little better than the original but feels a bit off, Bowser stayed true to his source material better than anyone else but they still managed to improve on him.

    I honestly really love the Mario and Luigi designs with the, workers gloves, lace up shoes, and collar shirts, it really does make them look like average guys who got wrapped up in an adventure. Also, if this was Mario’s “origin story” - considering the reaction he has to the mushroom kingdom in the trailer - it does make a lot of sense. So, while it’s not my favorite design, it’s a nice one.

    The only problem I have with bowser is that his nose is more "roundish" than in the games, which make him look less threatening in a way. Otherwise every design is good

    Yeah I agree about enjoying Peach’s character
    Her constant kidnappings in most of the games really affected the fanbase’s perception of her, and I hope Nintendo will do stuff what they did with her in games like Super Paper Mario and Mario RPG more in the future

    Only thing I don’t like that hasn’t really been talked about by anyone, is the green scales on Bowser’s shoulders. I guess after seeing something iconic for so long, the smallest changes don’t feel right.

    I will say, Miyamoto himself said that DK's redesign resembles his more classic design. And comparing the redesign with the Arcade artwork and the Donkey Kong GB game's box art, I kinda see it.

    I definitely enjoyed this video. Makes me want to hear what Finn thinks about character design for characters he doesn't know the personality of. Including (possibly) the characters of the webcomic El Goonish Shive. Especially if he reacted to the multiple forms for some characters. Doubt that'll happen, because it probably wouldn't do well with the algorithm, but still.

    Yes! Bowsers inside story is also one of my favorite Mario games of all time. This game has such amazing environments and it really feels lived in, being able to explore toad town, peach’s and bowser’s castle. Also the gameplay is great too.

    One more small detail I noticed with the movie Toad design is that it looks like they actually have legs instead of just two feet attached to a bulbous body. It makes it look more like they're wearing little parachute pants instead of diapers!

    I really hope we get to see Fawful in a sequel. Maybe Antasma as well, but I think he is a bit of a stretch. Fawful though… he has potential. Don’t get me wrong, they both have potential. Heck, there isn’t much I wouldn’t do to see the two freaking TEAM UP! But we probably aren’t getting the villainous vampire we know and love from Dream Team anytime soon. But I could see Fawful possibly appearing in a sequel… Someone at Nintendo make it happen!

    You pretty much just said everything I have on my mind, saving me from writing yet another essay. I trust Illumination with Mario and to hit this movie out of the park. I'm glad they changed up not just the characters' but also the world's designs a little bit to make them feel more immersive and real, rather than going with the exact same art style from the games. I won't say which one I think is better for now - that'll probably come with time - but in my mind, they're about even.
    Now onto some last-minute comments which I have yet to say anywhere. First, *MARIO KART AND RAINBOW ROAD IS IN THE MOVIE?! WHAT?!?! I AM SO HYPED FOR THAT!* Really can't wait to see what role they will play.
    Second, Peach. I'm less interested in her design and more interested in the character that she is showing here. For ONCE, it doesn't look like she's going to be a useless damsel in distress who is all sweet and fluffy all the time, but rather, an actual princess with charm, wit, and brains, taking command against this massive force in the form of Bowser and the Koopas to protect her kingdom. Will she get kidnapped at some point in the movie? Probably. I'd be shocked if she doesn't. But I can tell you that unlike the games, it won't be without a fight, and that I could not be more excited for. In short, it looks like she's getting the character development that I have yet to see in the games. :D

    I still can’t believe they went from a hard X rating to a PG rating just by removing the one scene where Mario was seductively eating a peach.

    From the moment I saw Illumination was handling the film, I knew that they were the right choice. They have a very "squeaky clean" type of animation/character design which really fits the Mario aesthetic IMO.

    So this may sound strange, but it’s really hard for me to look at video game DK and hear Seth Rohan’s voice coming out of it. But when I see CK (Chad Kong) I can absolutely see Seth’s voice coming from it laugh and all. And that’s what really sells it for me.

    I love how DK now actually looks like a grown up DK Jr. having grown up with NES. Seeing him in DKC was kinda weird at first but I immediately liked how bad ass he can be. I'm glad they managed to blend Miyamoto's OG design and Rare's.
    Mario's proportions in the video games, is really weird despite it's cartoony visuals. In Odyssey which is more obvious his body looks really weird. It looks cute at first glance but there's a couple of stances where he looks.....
    I'm glad they didn't go with the Toy Story/plastic-y look and static face and eye shapes the games have. Even their Smash HD cutscene look likely won't look that good in the big screen.

    4:00 honestly I'm perfectly fine with that, I kinda like it actually because that way he is a bit unique in the sense that he doesn't look like he was ripped straight from game files, he's movie Mario, not game Mario. Same exact thing goes for Movie Sonic.

    I believe the donkey kong redesign was started to make him look more comedic, but mostly, to make him resemble his original design in the arcade game more and I think it certainly does that since dk in the arcade is much more broad whereas the modern dk has more shapes in his design

    One thing that I prefer peach in the games for is her height. In the games she was clearly quite tall, even through proportions alone. In the movie, her proportions make her look short, even though she’s still quite a bit taller than Mario.
