Who Voices Princess Peach in The Super Mario Bros. Movie?

Princess Peach is voiced by British-American actor Anya Taylor-Joy, who is a rising A-lister in Hollywood with a number of credits under her belt.

Taylor-Joy’s voice has become quite recognizable over the years for its sultry tone and it’s clear she’ll be giving Peach a new lease of life in the live-action.

Some of Taylor-Joy’s most notable credits include her role as Gina Gray in Peaky Blinders, Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit, and Sandie in Last Night in Soho.

Taylor-Joy’s upcoming roles include the Mad Max spin-off Furiosa and films The Gorge and Laughter in the Dark.

How Old is Peach in the Games?

First appearing in Nintendo’s 1985 title Super Mario Bros., Peach was confirmed to be 15 years old.

In the present franchise, however, Distractify reported that Peach is now estimated to be around 25 years old.

Despite some sites dedicated to the franchise stating Peach was born in 1985 – which would make her nearly 40 years old in the present day – the characters do not age from game to game, but it’s understandable why they would want to make Peach older in the modern day.

Nerdbear also reported that since Mario and Luigi are in their 30s, this would put Peach around the same age.
