Super Mario Bros. Are Getting Another Movie, Here's What We Know
Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment are close to a deal that would see the plumbers return to the big screen, this time in animated form. Illumination Entertainment, which is responsible for films like Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets, has been in talks with the games company for over a year about a Super Mario Bros. film. Apparently a big sticking point for Nintendo, per The Wall Street Journal, in giving up film rights to the characters has been the desire to be involved in the creative process. This is understandable given that the 1993 film, while a surreal experiment, was Super Mario Bros. in name only. This time around it looks like Shigeru Miyamoto, the legendary creator of Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Star Fox and The Legend of Zelda, was involved in the talks and will be a producer on the film. While only one film is currently planned, the deal could allow for multiple films should the first be successful.
