On Tuesday, Universal and Illumination declared that “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” will be released worldwide on Wednesday, April 5, two days earlier than its initial release date of Friday, April 7. Mario is gearing up for an earlier release date.
Nintendo developed and launched Super Mario Bros. in 1985 for the NES, a popular 2D platformer game that has become widely recognized. The game’s main character is an Italian plumber named Mario, who embarks on a mission to rescue Princess Toadstool (also known as Princess Peach) from Bowser, the Koopas’ wicked king.
The game is divided into eight worlds, each of which has four stages, and the player’s task is to direct Mario through each one by dodging opponents, jumping and dashing over obstacles, and collecting power-ups like mushrooms and fire flowers. In order to access the castle and face Bowser or one of his henchmen in a boss battle, Mario must make it to the conclusion of each level.
Famous for its straightforward yet compelling gameplay, famous characters, and catchy music is Super Mario Bros. Since then, it has risen to prominence as one of the most popular video games of all time, inspiring a large number of sequels and spin-offs on various gaming platforms.
It’s understandable if you’re having difficulty keeping track of The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s release date, as Universal has changed it several times. Originally planned for a December 2022 release, the movie’s release date was later rescheduled to early March in numerous locations, including Europe, the UK, and Australia.
Apart from its domestic release, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” will hit cinemas in over 60 global markets, such as Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Universal has also revealed that around 10 markets in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East will open on various dates in April and May. Furthermore, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” will be released in Japan on April 28, coinciding with the Golden Week Holidays.
Initially revealed in September 2021, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” was initially scheduled to be released in cinemas on December 21, 2022, but it was pushed back to 2023 a few months after the announcement.
In Mario’s debut animated movie, Chris Pratt is lending his voice to the well-known Italian plumber. The star-studded cast also features 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 Super Mario Bros. Movie” is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, who previously worked on “Teen Titans Go!” and “Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.” The screenplay is penned by Matthew Fogel, known for his work on “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” and “Minions: The Rise of Gru.” The movie is produced by Chris Meledandri, founder and CEO of Illumination, and Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo. Universal Pictures and Nintendo will jointly finance the film.
