DUBAI: Nintendo and Universal Pictures have been working together on the upcoming The Super Mario Bros. Movie since 2017, and the time has finally come for the action.
Nintendo revealed the movie’s first poster and announced a special Nintendo Direct livestream, which will broadcast the very first trailer.
The live stream will be an in-person event taking place at New York Comic-Con and broadcast across the internet. During the broadcast, there will be no gaming news announced.
10月7日（金）朝5時5分よりスーパーマリオの映画に関する「Nintendo Direct: The Super Mario Bros. Movie」を放送します。— 任天堂株式会社 (@Nintendo) October 4, 2022
What makes the poster reveal special is the fact that it has both hints of the movie’s animation style and some of its locations/characters.
In the poster, Mario is seen standing in a Toad town, with one of the Toad characters wearing a Captain Toad backpack, and above the town are the floating islands from Mario Galaxy, colorful pipes and Princess Peach’s castle.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie will feature Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Seth Rogan as Donkey Kong, Jack Black as Bowser and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad.
The movie is scheduled to premiere on April 7, 2023.
