Nonetheless, I still disagree with casting Chris Pratt as Mario, as he is not of Italian descent. Someone who is should be voicing him, perhaps even giving him a "mobster" voice to distinguish this version from Charles Martinet's portrayal.

There's a product style guide all done for the Mario movie per the copyright office.

You’ll have to excuse my ignorance on this one, but what exactly is this supposed to mean? Is it something important?

Product style guides are likely meant for merchandise of the movie. It means the character designs are all done and ready at this point and will likely come out sooner than later (which means the delay from December to April is not because it's being extensively re-worked; they would've had to delay the film a whole year or two if that was the case).

Note the guide was published in June, after the film was delayed.

Update 7/28: Apparently Ed Skudder (Unikitty!, D(u)ck Figures) is the Head of Story for the Mario movie, per his LinkedIn page. Guessing he worked on the story with screenwriter Matthew Fogel.

Going to make wild guesses on when the full-fledged theatrical trailer post-teaser (assuming there isn't a second teaser) comes out:

* Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast on NBC
* Patriots-Vikings Thanksgiving prime-time game
* The Game Awards 2022 (though Universal might prefer to get as many eyeballs on the trailer as they can so I doubt it)
* Attached to theaters with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
* The Buccs-Cardinals Xmas game
* WWE PPV event streaming on Peacock (like Survivor Series or the Royal Rumble)
* Super Bowl LVIII

The last time Cartoon Network aired Looney Tunes and/or Tom and Jerry (i.e. the classic shorts) was on September 29, 2017, just two days shy of the channel's 25th anniversary.
As of 2022, CN's campaign against bullying is still using the logo it had since its inception.
The latest video of the campaign has the RYW graphics, even though CN USA is ditching the look. Likewise the campaisgn's logo uses a font CN used heavily in the early 2010s and doesn't seem to use a lot anymore,
I wish a happy birthday to Alan Rachins (80) (voice of Clock King and Norman Osborn) and TJ Hill (37) (musical composer for Fancy Nancy, Amphibia, and The Owl House season 1).

Who else here is enjoying CN's 30th-anniversary live stream? I can say I'm glad they're showing a balanced mix of classic and newer favorites along with some of the old promos.
