Fans of the iconic video game franchise, Super Mario Bros., are in for a treat as the release of the Super Mario Bros. movie has been moved up. Originally slated for a release in December 2022, the movie is now set to hit theaters on November 25th of the same year, just in time for the holiday season.
The Super Mario Bros. franchise has been a staple in the world of video games for over three decades, and the upcoming movie is set to bring the beloved characters and world to life in a whole new way. The film is being produced by Illumination, the animation studio behind popular movies such as Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. The movie is being directed by Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise, and Chris Meledandri, the founder of Illumination.
The movie will feature a star-studded cast, with Chris Pratt playing the role of Mario, the beloved plumber who sets out on a quest to save Princess Peach from the clutches of the evil Bowser, who will be played by Jack Black. Other cast members include Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad.
The announcement of the movie’s early release has been met with excitement from fans of the franchise. Many have been eagerly anticipating the release of the movie since it was first announced in 2018. The decision to move up the release date is seen as a testament to the confidence that the studio has in the movie.
The Super Mario Bros. movie is not the first time that the franchise has been adapted for the big screen. In 1993, a live-action Super Mario Bros. movie was released, but it was met with negative reviews and was a commercial failure. The upcoming movie is a completely different take on the franchise, with the characters being animated rather than portrayed by live actors.
The decision to use animation for the movie is a wise one, as it allows for greater flexibility and creativity in bringing the world of Super Mario Bros. to life. The movie is also being produced by Illumination, a studio that has a proven track record of creating successful animated movies that appeal to both children and adults.
While the Super Mario Bros. movie is sure to be a hit with fans of the franchise, it is also likely to appeal to a wider audience. The characters and world of Super Mario Bros. are known and loved by people all over the world, and the movie has the potential to introduce a whole new generation of fans to the franchise.
In addition to the Super Mario Bros. movie, there are also plans for a Super Mario Bros. theme park, which is set to open at Universal Studios Japan in 2021. The theme park will feature attractions based on the franchise, as well as restaurants and shops that will allow visitors to immerse themselves in the world of Super Mario Bros.
The early release of the Super Mario Bros. movie is a welcome surprise for fans of the franchise. With a star-studded cast, an acclaimed animation studio behind it, and the creator of the franchise directing it, the movie has all the makings of a hit. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Super Mario Bros. or a newcomer to the franchise, the movie is sure to be a fun and exciting adventure that’s not to be missed. So mark your calendars for November 25th, 2022, and get ready to join Mario and his friends on their latest quest to save the Mushroom Kingdom!
