Nintendo Direct had promised to drop a new trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and we got a new preview showcasing some great action moments and more Mario Kart.

See You on the Rainbow Road in Final Trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Check this out:

Admittedly, the trailer wasn’t so focused on showing off the story, but we do get to see a lot more of the world of the Mushroom Kingdom. I guess it feels like kind of a spoiler that we get to see Donkey Kong actually teaming up with Mario in the movie, but I like the confirmation that the Mario Kart sequence won’t just be something at the end, but an actual scene with stakes—what with Bowser’s army trying to Mad Max Mario out of the Rainbow Road.

Even if it wasn’t intentional, it’s pretty fun watching Mario use the shells against the Koopas during the race.

Here’s the synopsis:

While working underground to fix a water main, Brooklyn plumbers Mario (Chris Pratt; Jurassic World and The LEGO Movie franchises) and brother Luigi (Charlie Day; It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) are transported down a mysterious pipe and wander into a magical new world. But when the brothers are separated, Mario embarks on an epic quest to find Luigi.

With the assistance of a Mushroom Kingdom resident Toad (Keegan-Michael Key; The Lion King) and some training from the strong-willed ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, Princess Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy;The Queen’s Gambit), Mario taps into his own power.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie releases in theaters on April 5.
