    Oh dear god...
    Nintendo's territory is VIDEO GAMES, NOT MOVIES. Well, let's see how this blows over.

    The animation will be good, especially if Nintendo collaborates on it, but who knows on the writing.

    Toads would speak English and be (almost) serious characters, Goombas would gabble gibberish (like minions) and bumble around. They are a better fit for Minion treatment.

    I doubt Illumination can make this a good movie.

    Despicable me 1 and 2 were only decent because of those minions. And Despicable me 3... well, let's not talk about it. On the other hand the minions alone didn't work at all. The Secret Life of Pets was mediocre at best and Sing was just a huge marketing gag for the dominating pop industry. *shrug*
    That pop song selection is what annoys me the most. Wouldn't want that crap in a Mario movie. The two vocalized songs in Odyssey were more my cup of tea being Jazz and Rock themed.

    I might sound like I'd hate to have seen all those movies, but actually it's just The Secret Life of Pets and Sing that disgust me. The others were entertaining, but I wouldn't watch any of them a second time.

    Tl;dr: WHY NOT PIXAR???:cry:

    Haven't seen Despicable Me 3 yet, so Minions is my lowest one on the list. Not because it was the worse movie imaginable, it just didn't seem necessary, at all. Not to mention the heavy advertising.

    Anyway, I hope it does good. So we can get more Nintendo movies and shows.

    Oh gees. Why stop there? Just keep the Radbids in the game. Three way crossover.
