It sounds like the Super Mario Bros. Movie might be a bit of a musical, as Toad actor Keegan-Michael Key confirms that the mushroom man will perform a bit of singing.
While it isn''t clear if the Mario Bros. film will be a full on musical, Giant Bomb''s Jeff Grubb said earlier this year that it may have a few musical numbers in it, which is quite impressive right now. Key was asked if Toad, the perfect creature known as, will perform any singing, to which the actor said "he does."
"I got to improvise a song in Super Mario Bros., which was a great day," Key continued to explain. "That was just a stick of fun, that whole thing." The actor also spoke about how he developed the voice, saying, "I''m now working on it with my partner, and trying to connect it through the film''s internal journey." And then with the directors [Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic], we wrapped some things in, we moved it around."
A must toad do some singing, despite the whole shrill voice that may possibly tame a guy with its sharpness? Yes, yes, but that hasn''t stopped Key, so you should appreciate the gift we''re receiving here.
Jack Black, who is on the verge of making Bowser, said at New York Comic Con that he "did a bit of rocking," and that he believes "you''ll be surprised to see that Bowser has a musical side."
While Martinet has spoken out about the titular plumber''s casting for decades, everyone''s least favourite of Chris Pratt is taking the lead on the Mario Bros. film, which is a topic of concern for many.
