Super Mario release date Bros. the quirky movie
Among a plethora of video game adaptation projects for the cinema in recent years, Nintendo’s licenses are relatively discreet on the big screen. The great return of the brands of the Japanese giant in dark rooms was however to take place this year in December with the film Super Mario, dedicated as its name suggests to the famous plumber in blue overalls and a red cap. However, the animated feature film will have to wait a little longer.
It was on Twitter that Shigeru Miyamoto, famous creator of Super Mario, announced it on the official accounts of the Japanese publisher. “After consultation with Chris [Meledandri, ndlr] my partner at Illumination for the Super Mario movie Bros., we have decided to shift the worldwide release of the film to spring 2023, April 28 in Japan and April 7 in North America. My deepest apologies but I promise you the wait will be worth it.” Honestly, we can expect the movie to be released around the US release date, probably early April 2023.
The animated feature film was entrusted by Nintendo to Illumination Entertainment, an animation studio subsidiary of Universal Pictures to which we owe the saga Me, Despicable and Mean but also its spin-off The Minions. Super Mario movie Bros is directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic and should feature a Super Mario adventure, dubbed for the occasion by Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy). Alongside him, many well-known actors are included in the credits, including Anya Taylor-Joy (Mad Max Fury Road, Split) as Princess Peach, Seth Rogen (Supergrave) as Donkey Kong and finally Jack Black (Rock Academy, Jumanji) as Bowser.
Note that this is not the first attempt to adapt Super Mario on the big screen. In 1993, a first live action adaptation had already been attempted by Annabel Jankel and Rocky Morton. We discovered Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in the roles of Mario and Luigi. The feature film did not break even and, above all, was burned at the stake of the worst adaptations of video games into films. We understand better why Nintendo will have taken thirty years to bring out its plumber from the small screens of its consoles to the big screen!
