Chris Pratt isn't getting much love from fans following the revelation that he's voicing Mario, and we understand why.
Despite The Super Mario Bros. Movie dropping in theaters soon, the backlash on his casting is apparently still ongoing. But amidst the negativity, directors Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath have come to Pratt's defence.
Praising the actor as "perfect" for the role, his character's Brooklyn-voice is lauded in sense that the movie will be focusing on Mario's origin. They explained:
"It is a bit of an origin tale. It's the story of Mario becoming Super Mario. Pratt is really good at playing a blue-collar hero with a ton of heart. For the way that Mario is characterized in our film, he's perfect for it."
