    I'm honestly surprised something like this wasn't a thing in the 90s.

    I mean, of course, there's the infamous Mario Bros. Movie, but that was live-action, not animated. Maybe they're trying to appeal to nostalgia, considering that the original-gen Mario and Sonic fans are now all grown up.

    Anyways, this is Illumination we're talking about here. With Miyamoto at the helm, it could be good. But it could also be very, very bad. We'll just have to wait and see.

    It's only a bit concerning, a good chunk of my concern is gone with the fact that Miyamoto is co producing it. Not like the other movie where Nintendo supervised it - apparently not that observant.

    I thought the Despicable Me movies were great. Minions is not worth my mention, but other th- fuck I mentioned it.

    Just wondering what the story will be about. Also do you think mario will have actual voice lines? or will Marios voice actor just spout gibberish and theyll have subtitles translating what mario says? I feel like theyll introduce a talking companion sorta like starlow to accompany him throughout the movie

    Probably a safe bet that Princess Peach will get kidnapped and Mario will have to save her!! Mario needs to keep Liam Neeson's character in TAKEN on his speed dial as much as that woman gets kidnapped!! :)

    Does anybody read locations?
    I feel like the voices are gonna suck bad. Unless they use the people who made the voices in the games. This movie feels like it’s just gonna be another Illuminati-on movie. Stupid characters, annoying characters, crappy soundtrack (unless they get a good videogame music composer) generic insert popular song here while we play a montage, seems like a sad moment in the end and then stuff works out. I know that was long-winded, but Illumination is so predictable. Same plot, change up the characters and maybe their goals, and ya get quick movie-in-a-can.

    I bet they'd do something weird like make Mario talk.

    Tis a shame though because Despicable Me is in no way funny or charming.

    We do hear Mario talk in games. Phrases like "Welcome to Mario Kart" and "it's a me, Mario!". In the previous cartoons he spoke as well, so I would assume he'll speak in a 90 minute movie.

    What if he talks, but it's in the Superstar Saga style gibberish speak?

    If he does, then does that mean the next Mario & Luigi game is going to be a tie-in to the Mario movie?

    Despicable Me is ok...when the movie actually focuses on the protagonist, Gru, and the humans. I hate how it just stupidly cuts away to the minions.

    Illumination also made the movie Sing, which was better in my opinion but...still not great.
