Minions studio reportedly creating a Mario movie

Minions studio reportedly creating a Mario movie

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo has made a deal with Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio that makes the Despicable Me movies (as well as recent hits Sing and The Secret Life of Pets) to do an animated Mario movie.

According to industry heads, Illumination has been in talks with Nintendo for over a year.

To that end, we're willing to bet that this potential animated project will likely be much closer in spirit to the Super Mario Bros. games.

EgyptAir to buy 12 Bombardier aircraft for $1.1 billion
The CS300, larges of two versions made by the Montreal-based company has a list price of $89.5 million before discount. Bombardier hasn't sealed a major purchase since Delta Air Lines ordered 75 aircraft in April 2016.

The Super Mario Brothers series has shifted over 330 million units total for Ninitendo in the years since it first landed on consoles in the 1980s, so it's no surprise that a new film is in the offing. The aforementioned Super Mario Bros., released in 1993, was a critical and commercial failure, although it did leave us with a truly magical cinematic moment.

It's important to note that a deal is not yet done, and both Nintendo and Universal have declined to comment. Universal Parks entered an agreement with Nintendo to develop multiple attractions based on the cavalcade of iconic characters the video game publisher owns.

After the weird but strangely attractive disaster that was the live-action 1993 Super Mario Bros movie, it's not hard to believe Nintendo's being a tough negotiator this time around. The only plans Nintendo and Illumination Pictures have at this time are for the one Mario movie.
