New Super Mario movie?

New Super Mario movie?

Nintendo and the makers of the Minions would like to cooperate?!

There is a chance that a new movie might be in the works for the biggest Nintendo hero, Mario.

Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment, the creators of Despicable Me and the Minions, are almost in agreement on bringing our former plumber friend, back, to get on the big screen. For those not familiar with the original Super Mario Movie;

Yes, this movie should never have come to life right? We can not explain it better than the guys from Honest Trailers already did;

But back to the present

Wall Street Journal reported this news, but LUCKILY it concerns an animation in this case. One of the conditions is that Nintendo will be greatly involved in the entire production process.

To manage this smoothly Shigeru Miyamoto will be one of the producers of the movie. 
For now the deal is about just one film, but if this proves to be a success then it is of course possible that there will follow several.

Video game animations can work just fine, just look at those parts in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show which we still remember as if it was yesterday. As it was something we looked forward to. But for the love of Mario … lets just agree to never ever speak of the original Super Mario Bros. movie again, we get the chills when we see bits and pieces of it again.
