Reports are swirling that Nintendo has made a deal with Illumination Entertainment to do an animated Super Mario movie. Illumination Entertainment is the animation team behind the ‘Despicable Me’ movies, ‘Sing’ and ‘The Secret Life of Pets.’
The two companies have reportedly been in the negotiation phase for almost a year.
The animated Super Mario Bros. film is currently in “early development.” The last and only movie based on the video game was a live-action film from 1993. Animated films tend to take a long time to make, so don’t start holding your breath yet.
