Gamers the world over are having the time of their lives navigating Super Mario Odyssey, the rapturously-received new Switch game starring the original Italian jumpman. The animated movie would be released by Universal, which handles finances and the release of Illumination films and has a previous relationship with Nintendo that includes creating Nintendo-themed lands at Universal Studios. However, it seems the wound is finally healing as Nintendo is apparently close to signing a deal on a potential Super Mario Bros movie. Unfortunately, it became the poster child for disgusting movies based on a video game license, and it has taken more than 20 years before we're even hearing about another film starring a character from a Nintendo franchise. The last and only feature-length film star Mario was the 1993's Super Mario Brothers which starred Bob Hoskins.

Neither Nintendo nor Illusion is commenting on the apparent leak. According to a new report, Nintendo is thinking about developing a Mario movie in collaboration with Illumination Entertainment. According to the report by the Wall Street Journal, the studio has been in discussions with the studio for a year, and the movie is in the early stages of production.
