Everybody’s favourite red hat wearing plumber (and probably his less popular green hat wearing brother) are coming back to the big screen.
Nintendo have officially announced a partnership with animated movie producer Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind big hits such as the Minions franchise.
The film will be co-produced by Nintendo representative director Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri.
Universal Pictures and Nintendo are co-financing the project, and Universal Pictures will handle the film’s theatrical distribution worldwide.
This has all the makings of a huge hit.
However this isn’t the first time the Mario brothers have hit the big screen but the less said about that the better.
We will bring you more news on the movie when we know more.
