Looks like Mario is coming back to the big screen as an animated movie. The Wall Street Journal has reported Nintendo making a deal with the same company (Illumination Entertainment) behind the popular Despicable Me franchise.
The last time we saw anything of motion picture Mario was the smash-hit Super Mario Bros. starring Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper.
During an interview with The Guardian Bob Hoskins said it was “the worst thing I ever did” and that “the whole experience was a nightmare”.
Seriously, check out the trailer.
In saying that, the past is the past and it feels only right that Mario make a comeback as an animated movie. Super Mario Odyssey is basically a film already and unless Danny Divito wants to step into a live-action reboot of the 1993 classic…
I’d rather put my faith and my coins in a cartoon mustache over a real one. My only hope is that this builds a little more trust in Nintendo to let Netflix do a Legend of Zelda TV series.
