Check out today’s full Nintendo Direct, with that stunning Super Mario Bros. movie trailer

Prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor and/or somehow attempt to stop smiling. A much bigger look at the Super Mario Bros. Movie is here.

Directly from Brooklyn

Maybe it’s the fact that I grew up with Super Mario Bros. games, but I literally can’t stop smiling at the spectacle that was included with today’s Nintendo Direct. I can’t even attempt to have some kind of objectivity with Nintendo and Illumination’s upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie. I’m in love with it already.

As a friend of mine just said after we both watched today’s Direct, “this movie is going to be pure joy”. If you haven’t seen it, you can watch the full presentation below.

From Nintendo and Illumination comes a new animated film based on the world of Super Mario Bros. 

Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (collaborators on Teen Titans Go!, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies) from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru), the film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike. 

The film is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo. The film will be co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo and released worldwide by Universal Pictures.

Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, the Tanooki Suit… the wait for April 2023 is going to be excruciating.
