SUPER MARIO BROS. Reboot Film In Talks With MINIONS Studio

SUPER MARIO BROS. Reboot Film In Talks With MINIONS Studio

That's according to a new Wall Street Journal report, which claims both Nintendo and Universal are close to signing on the dotted line. However, it seems that the current plan is for Universal Animation - the studio behind Minions and Shrek - to handle the actual production of the animated movie once the final arrangements have been made. Said projects include an animated series based on The Legend of Zelda.

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

With the failure of the live-action movie, it makes sense that Nintendo would choose the animated route.

Of course, given the fiasco that was the 1993 Super Mario Brothers movie, Nintendo is very precious about their brand, and a big part of this deal has been reassuring the Japanese video game company that they would be involved in the creative process.




Of course, Nintendo is nearly laughably protective of their intellectual properties, especially after the disastrous 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie.

Once upon a time, Nintendo made a decision to roll the dice on a big-budget Hollywood adaptation of Super Mario Bros.

There's nothing further to report at this time, but we'll keep you informed as updates roll in. While we can't quite fathom what the film's plot will be about, we're going to bet that this theoretical movie will at least be visually pleasing.
