No, not THAT Mario Brothers movie. A new one!

Nintendo of America just gave a few more details on the upcoming Mario film, which has often been discussed but no details have emerged...until now, On twitter of all places:

We had heard back earlier this month that the movie's production partner would be announced. Turns out it's Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Minions and Despicable Me. Chris Meledandri served as producer on both films. Not many details beyond that but it's enough to suggest that this Mario film will likely not be live-action, given Illumination's specialty is CGI films.


Our Take
Illumination Entertainment knows how to make good movies for kids. I'm in.
