Nintendo had confirmed the reports that they are partnering with Illumination, an animation studio behind Minions and Despicable Me, on a movie which would star Mario. This movie will be co-produced by Chris Meledandri and Shigeru Miyamoto.
There is no category of movie adaptation which more maligned than video game movies. And there is no video game movie which has been mocked more than Super Mario Bros (1993). John Leguizamo and Bob Hoskins’s adventure had a sour reputation.
As it has been reported, Illumination Entertainment is currently in talks with Nintendo and is bringing a new Mario Bros. movie. These discussions have been going on for one year.
The idea of a Mario film looks like a no-brainer, but the overwhelming popularity of Nintendo Switch’s Super Mario Odyssey has proven that the princess-saving plumber is a beloved character.
So, which of Mario’s adventures will be featured in the upcoming movie? We think that it may send the hero through the pipes, plains, deserts, seas, ghost houses, cloud realms and tundra of the Mushroom Kingdom.
