I’m a huge fan of the Super Mario games and no matter what anyone says about the new movie, I’m going to watch it in the theater this week.

The new animated movie came out today and features an impressive cast of voices including Chris Pratt, Jack Black, Anya Joy-Taylor, Seth Rogen, and Charlie Day. Despite the cast of recognizable names, there are some people who are being critical of the movie based solely on the trailer. Those are the people who will hate the movie because they aren’t going to go watch it to enjoy it. They are going to go to the theater with hate in their hearts and come out sad.

This is Idaho's Favorite Super Mario Character

I’m excited to see how they turn the amazing video game franchise into a movie. In the trailer, which you can watch at the bottom of this story, they incorporate a lot of aspects from the different games. Since the games span such a variety of consoles and game versions, there are a lot of great characters. But Idaho has a clear favorite and it isn’t the titular character in red or his brother Luigi. Idaho’s favorite Mario character is the scrawny man in purple - Waluigi.

The ranking of Mario characters is revealed in a story on Chicco USA where they also show who wins the popularity contest between Mario and Luigi and the princesses in each state.

Sadly, there doesn’t appear to be any Waluigi action in the movie. The trailer does give us a lot to look forward to, but I’ll have to wait until I see it in the theater to see if W makes an appearance.
