It's safe to say that Chris Pratt is hyped to voice Mario

Nintendo has learned from its initial Mario outing by going for a fully animated adaptation of its most recognizable mascot.

To help guarantee its success, Nintendo is working with Illumination, a company best known for laughing its way to the bank by animating yellow blobs of happiness and making them go viral.

To top it all off, Chris Pratt has signed on to be the voice of Mario.

While we're still doubtful if Pratt can give Mario justice, we can at least take solace that the Marvel and Jurassic World actor is ecstatic.

Pratt took to Twitter to express his excitement to play the Italian plumber.

Make sure to tune in to the next Nintendo Direct on October 6 to see Super Mario in action ahead of its delayed launch on April 7.
