The trailer for Universal, Illumination, and Nintendo’s upcoming animated film Super Mario Bros., scheduled for release on April 7, 2023, debuted at New York Comic-Con.

The first reports of a Super Mario Bros. movie appeared back in 2017, and it’s been in the works ever since. Chris Meledandri, the founder and CEO of Illumination, known for Despicable Me and Minions, is producing alongside the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Nintendo’s Mario. Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic are directing the film from a script by Matthew Vogel.

After a failed feature film in the 1990s, Nintendo effectively closed its doors to film studios for a decade, with the exception of Pokemon. If Mario works, the next project could be, for example, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, or Luigi’s Mansion.
