Nintendo has confirmed that a Nintendo Direct: The Super Mario Bros. Movie presentation will be broadcast later this week.
Set to start at 1.05pm PT / 9.05pm BST / 10.05 CEST on Thursday 6th October 2022, the presentation will share the world premiere trailer for the upcoming film with the company adding that “no game information will be featured.”
The news was accompanied by the first look at a promotional poster for the film, which offers a glimpse at the art direction that the team has taken.
Plans for the movie were revealed in February 2018, which will be co-produced by Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri – co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo, with Universal Pictures responsible for distributing the movie worldwide.
The movie is being created in partnership with Illumination, an animation studio that many will know for creating Despicable Me, but also for their work on Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing and The Grinch.
The Super Mario Bros. movie will release in theatres across North America on 7th April 2023, and in Japan on 28th April 2023.
