The movie, released in 1993, was a commercial and critical failure. Nintendo was a bit reluctant to further give a license for its intellectual properties to be used in a film. Still, Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto was interested in producing one more Super Mario Movie. Along with the Illumination founder, he talked over the concept of the new movie. By 2016, Chris Meledandri and ...

Nintendo’s much-awaited animated movie is based on the famous Super Mario Bros. The movie was expected to be released in 2022 but will now be delayed from the announced release date. Illumination and Nintendo have now declared that the Mario movie is expected to release in 2023, making the next spring exciting.

Game designer and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto announced through a tweet using the official account of Nintendo of America. Miyamoto said that the team working hard for the set release has decided to delay this Super Mario movie. Both he and he and Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri, who happens to be the co-producer, have jointly made the decision to delay the release.

He tweeted that after a long consultation with his partner at Illumination- Chris-san, they have come to a decision to delay the release of the Super Mario Bros. film. The film will now release on April 28, 2023, in Japan and on April 7, 2023, in North America. Miyamoto also apologized for the delay and promised that the wait would be worth it.

The Super Mario Bros. movie was expected to release in the theatres on December 21, 2022. The new release in April 2023 makes it cross the way of James Cameron’s Avatar 2, which is another highly awaited film set to release in the movie hall on December 16. The Mario fans will have to wait a bit longer for a great cinematic experience. The Super Mario Movie. fans will have to remain content by watching the previous action releases until they get to see the new marvel. Nintendo earlier announced in 2018 that they wish to make an animated Mario movie in collaboration with Illumination, the power behind Despicable Me and Minions.

The Super Mario movie is still untitled and waiting for an official announcement regarding the title. What is known is that it features the mesmerizing voices of Anya Taylor-Joy voicing over as Princess Peach, Chris Pratt voicing over as Mario, and Jack Black voicing over as Bowser. The other cast includes Charlie Day voicing over as Luigi, Seth Rogan voicing over as Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key voicing over as Toad, and Fred Armisen voicing over as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson voicing over as Kamek, and Sebastian Maniscalco voicing over as Spike.

The CEO of Illumination: Chris Meledandri, tweeted a similar post using the Illumination’s official social media account. It quoted that he and Miyamoto-san have collaborated to bring in the Super Mario movie. They have also partnered with Universal Studios and have decided to postpone the global release of the movie to April 7, 2023, in North America and April 28, 2023, in Japan. The tweet stated that they are very excited to bring this incredible film to reality. With amazing stars like Guardians of the Galaxy fame, Chris Pratt is all set to voice Super Mario. Charles Martinet is the main voice that brings Mario and other Mushroom Kingdom characters to life in the famous video games. He will also play several cameos in the movie.

Why does the delay matter?
The latest delay can have a hit on the company’s biggest projects that were supposed to reposition the gaming giant. The company had also announced its expansion into theme parks which later slowed due to the pandemic. Nintendo’s most awaited game was supposed to be the sequel of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is now set to release in 2023. The delay will also create a distance from the Nintendo rivals Sega and Sony, whose “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” and “Uncharted” films are big hits this year. Nintendo wants the theme parks and movies to show their worth in the entertainment zone.


Nintendo has focused on video games and previously ignored thoughts about expansion. It got gaming icons like Mario licensed for clothing, but it was not able to bomb the box office in the last attempt. Nintendo has conveyed the delay to the fan base, but the stockholders may not be Ok with such delays.

Miyamoto also quoted that a delayed game is much better than a rushed game. Delays will result in a high-quality game, but as Nintendo is set to announce the financial results of the fiscal year, it might see the effects of the game delay on the profits.
