Super Mario Bros. Movie Coming in 2022

With Universal and Illumination Studios working on it, the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie should have enough credibility to delight even the hardiest of Nintendo’s detractors

In a recent report, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa says the new Super Mario Bros. Movie is on track for a release in 2022.

There’s not much info on the movie, but we know it’s a 3D animation. Universal Pictures and Illumination are co-producing the movie together.

Regardless of your opinion on the Minions, there’s no denying that the animation in those movies is wonderful at times.

Hopefully, this will help it retain more fidelity than the last attempt at a Mario Bros. movie.

Poor Bob Hoskins.

Furukawa said of the planned movie;

“As we have shared previously, production is moving along smoothly aiming for a theatrical release in 2022”.

Furukawa goes on to say;

“The movie will be jointly produced by Mr Shigeru Miyamoto, Representative Director and Fellow at Nintendo, as well as Mr Chris Meledandri, founder and CEO of Illumination”.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto is also on board. This can only be a good sign, creatively speaking, and gives me high hopes for the movie.

There are currently no mainly Mario games announced for 2020. However, rumours are circling about a potential new instalment in the Paper Mario series. Supposedly, the new game will be going back to the JRPG roots of the originals. Which would be a welcome breath of fresh air for fans.
