    As for the final announcement from Nintendo's financial investor briefing, the company has revealed that there will be a new movie starring their mascot character, Mario. Nintendo also confirmed an animation studio for this upcoming Super Mario movie; Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind the Despicable Me series. Only two staff for the film are known at this time, which are the two co-producers, Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination's Chris Meledandri. Meledandri has produced films like Ice Age, The Secret Life of Pets, and Despicable Me. There's no current release date for the movie yet, but the earliest it can release is in the year 2021.

    It COULD be good. I'm remaining optimistic, but at the same time I'm not going to worry too much about it until it comes out

    This'll be either great, or horrible. I'll definitely watch it. Luckily, it will be better than the *cough cough*other mario movie*cough cough* since Nintendo will definitely learn from their mistakes.

    I can't wait for the Mario Minions cross-over, I'm just trembling in my boots, the Rabbids weren't enough.

    You're not thinking big enough, the Minions and Rabbids could be a tie-in crossover

    It's a good animation studio, but the directors and what makes up the film is horrible

    I am sure the staff will not be hammered in the making of this movie.

    I think at that point, we would all need a lobotomy.

    It'll be good, Mario will be kept to his own universe, and the Minions/Rabbids to theirs, but this will obviously be targeted at children, so you still can't expect too much.

    Two companies that live off of milking their respective mascots for all they're worth and then some, and have become very very good at it, collaborating on a kids' movie. This will make an infinite amount of money.

    Lemme just quote myself from the previous thread about this:

    I don't care what others say, the original movie was under appreciated, and still better than its sequel "Land of the Dead"

    the original mario movie is still enjoyable to me to this day, they could have done better but I think it's fun
    but I dont get your reference about land of the dead, what has that got to do with mario?

    It also stars John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper, and has a similar comedic tone in a dark setting. If you haven't seen it, check it out sometime you'll understand.
