Another year of waiting. After pushing back the release date of the next game Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo looks back on the launch of its feature film Super Mario Bros. – originally slated for December 2022 – and rescheduled for Spring 2023. The announcement comes on Twitter, where franchise co-founder Shigeru Miyamoto shares the news:
As a reminder, it was a surprising cast that was announced during the Nintendo Direct in September 2021: Chris Pratt will play Mario, Charlie Day will be his brother Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy will be Peach, Jack Black will play Bowser, Seth Rogen will be Donkey Kong and Keegan-Michael Key will portray Toad. If some fans had expressed their dissatisfaction with the absence of Charles Martinet (interpreter of the iconic voice of Mario for more than 30 years), the latter should still make his appearance. The feature film is animated by the studio Illuminationalready recognized for the series of Despicable Me, Minions or The Grinch.
If the theatrical release of the project is already organized for April 28 in Japan and April 7 in the United States, no date has been communicated in France for the moment.
