Super Mario Bros. Animated Film From Minions Studio Reportedly In The Works

Super Mario Bros. Animated Film From Minions Studio Reportedly In The Works

I never thought that we would use Mario and Hollywood in the same sentence ever again. Furthermore, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto will most likely serve as a producer.

Nintendo is close to signing a licensing deal with Illumination Entertainment-the animation studio behind Despicable Me and Minions-to bring an animated Super Mario Bros. movie to the big screen.

This Super Mario Odyssey mural consists of 148,777 dominoes.

The Super Mario Bros. movie doesn't have an official title yet and is only in early development, so not much is known about it yet.

Russian Federation uses fake photos to accuse U.S. of supporting ISIS
The ministry is investigating its civil employee who attached a wrong photo to illustrate the ministry's statement on Abu Kamal. To make things worse for Russia's Ministry of Defense, they didn't completely crop out the "development footage" disclaimer.

In 2014, leaked emails showed that Sony Pictures had also been in talks with Nintendo about a potential animated Mario movie.

According to "one person close to the talks", the largest issue in the negotiations has been making Nintendo feel confident that it will be involved in the creative process.

Let's all hope (and pray) that Nintendo, together with Illumination Entertainment, can pull this off. Universal Parks entered an agreement with Nintendo to develop multiple attractions based on the cavalcade of iconic characters the video game publisher owns. Here's hoping that Nintendo and Universal are able to reach a deal concerning a Mario movie and that the film is at least better than the aforementioned Super Mario Brothers. The live-action film, which starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as Mario and Luigi, was a commercial and critical bomb, but has since then gained a cult following.
