A Super Mario Bros. movie is in the works

Not to mention Super Mario Odyssey just came out and is already being praised to be one of the best games of all time.

A deal is close to being struck for a Super Mario Bros film, according to the Wall Street Journal (although they're paywalled, so actually we're getting the news via Nintendo Life). The WSJ says the two companies have been speaking about the prospect for a year but that a deal is now "close" to being signed. The last and only feature-length film star Mario was the 1993's Super Mario Brothers which starred Bob Hoskins.

Nintendo wants to have a hand in creating the animated Super Mario Bros. movie, and it will likely have Super Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto on hand as a producer of the film. It would be interesting to see familiar Nintendo characters coming to movies, especially with the unique challenges of characters that hardly speak, like most of Nintendo's cadre. This can be the next awaited animated film of Hollywood.

Illumination last released the feature Sing, which grossed $634 million globally, and is now in production on Minions 2.

At this point in time, with no official statement or announcement, there's little more to do but speculate on the matter and get excited that something is somewhere on the horizon.
