The REAL Reason Why New Super Mario Bros U is Reportedly Coming to Nintendo Switch
A new Super Mario movie is reportedly in the works at Universal
- A new "Super Mario" movie is in the works, according to The Wall Street Journal.
- The movie is said to be an animated collaboration between Nintendo and the Universal-owned Illumination Entertainment.
- Nintendo and Universal haven't announced anything officially.
Nintendo's most important character, Mario, is reportedly headed back to the silver screen.
Mario is set to star in a new film created by the studio behind massive animated hits like "Despicable Me" and "Minions," according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The studio, Illumination Entertainment, is a subsidiary of Universal Pictures.
Nintendo isn't confirming or denying the report. A representative told Business Insider over email: "We have nothing to announce on this topic."
The film is described by The Journal as "an animated 'Super Mario Bros.' movie based on the 32-year-old video game series about a pair of sibling plumbers who fight evil turtles and mushrooms in a fantasy kingdom." That's right: It'snota live-action movie, as the 1993 adaption "Super Mario Bros." was.

The project has reportedly been in discussion for the past year; Illumination's Paris-based Mac Guff studio is said to already be working on the film, which The Journal said was in "early stages of development."
Nintendo is notoriously protective of its franchises. Outside animated "Pokémon" movies, Nintendo has rarely put its characters in starring film roles, with guest spots for various Nintendo characters in movies like "Pixels" and "Wreck-it Ralph" in recent years.
