The Super Mario movie plot follows the same story as the video game

Mario and his brother Luigi are out on a quest through an underground labyrinth to save the captured Princess Peach and fight Bowser, aka the king of Koopa, who is trying to rule the world, in an action-packed comedy adventure.

Mario is shown fighting Donkey Kong in an arena at the very beginning of the trailer, or more like getting destroyed by him. Princess Peach’s girl boss persona comes as a surprise and we’re all here for it.

To say that the trailer has been received positively by everyone, would be criminally understating the reactions of the people. Those who know nothing about Mario are as stoked for the film as the fans of the video game are for the same.
