Nintendo Making Animated Mario Movie With Studio Behind Minions

Super Mario Odyssey Multiplayer Lets Cappy Kill Mario

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo is in talks with Universal and Illumination Entertainment (the shop behind the "Despicable Me" franchise) for an animated movie version of their popular video game series. The WSJ says the two companies have been speaking about the prospect for a year but that a deal is now "close" to being signed. It's also been rumored that they've collaborated on projects in the past that didn't necessarily come to fruition. They've made Pokémon movies but, beyond that, rumors of movies based on Mario and The Legend of Zelda have been around for years.

Mario may be headed to the big screen once again.

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

Nintendo has already been in talks with Sony to produce the film, but Universal's Illumination studio is no doubt a more logical fit, given that the corporation is already in production on a Super Mario theme park.

This reveal comes on the heels of the mammothly successful Super Mario Odyssey video game for the Nintendo Switch, and is likely a great move to help capitalize on the character's continuing success. Super Mario Odyssey has certainly proved that Mario can survive the transition into some pretty freakish universes.
