The Super Mario Bros. Movie Has Been Delayed Into 2023

The Mushroom Kingdom will need to wait

Nintendo has announced that the movie adaptation of Super Mario Bros. has been delayed until April 2023.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto took to the Nintendo of America’s Twitter account to announce that after consulting with those at the animation studio Illumination, it’s been decided to move the release date of the Super Mario Bros. movie to April 7 in North America and April 28 in Japan. The film was originally set to hit theatres on December 21, but we won’t be getting the moustachioed plumber on the big screen until next year now.

We haven’t been given any reason for the delay, but I’ll be the first to say on WellPlayed’s behalf that it will be worth the wait, if just for the sheer absurdity of it all. The adaptation will see Chris Pratt voice the main man himself, with Jack Black, Seth Rogan and Charlie Day voicing Bowser, Donkey Kong and Luigi respectively.

Are you looking forward to the Super Mario Bros. movie? What do you think of the announced cast? Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
