Many fans were saddened by the announcement of the delay of the long-awaited super mario…
Of the Super Mario-Film by Illumination in cooperation with Nintendo has been in the works for a long time but is still a long time coming. Most recently, the movie originally planned for Christmas 2022 was postponed to April 2023. Exact reasons for the postponement were not given and otherwise the project has been continued in secret so far.
Maybe we now know what the film will be called. On the Illumination Studios Paris website, the movie “Super Mario Bros.” is listed in the company’s portfolio. A UNO game with “Super Mario Bros. Movie” motifs that appeared on Amazon last week also points to the simple choice of name.
If the film title comes true, the animated film would follow in the footsteps of the last film adaptation of the Super Mario– Kick games. The “Super Mario Bros.” movie from 1993 starring Bob Hoskin, John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper enjoys a kind of cult status among fans today due to the mixed quality.
While the clues point to the film’s title, we’ll probably have to wait for Nintendo and Illumination to officially release the film to the public.
The Super Mario movie is slated to hit theaters on April 7, 2023. The main cast consists of Chris Pratt as Mario, Anna Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach and Charlie Day as Luigi. Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic will direct and Matthew Fogel will write the script.
