Nintendo in Talks With Illumination Entertainment for Animated Mario Movie

Nintendo in Talks With Illumination Entertainment for Animated Mario Movie

Everyone’s favourite Italian plumber could be making his way to the big screen if a report by the Wall Street Journal is to be believed.

According to a report by Ben Fritz and Takashi Mochizuki at the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is currently in talks with Illumination Entertainment, the studio responsible for the brilliant Despicable Me film series and the wonderfully hilarious Minions movie to create an animated movie based on the life of the iconic Italian plumber and his brother Luigi.

No further details were given other than the likelihood of Shigeru Miyamoto joining the movie as producer. An animated Mario movie is likely to hit the right chord with Nintendo fans worldwide, especially given the excellent year the company has enjoyed following the release of the Switch in March.

Dan has been gaming for nearly 30 years and has survived everything from Nuclear Fallouts to Zombie Outbreaks but his main love is Survival Horror and don't we all know it. Favourite games include Resident Evil and Grand Theft Auto, he can be regularly found cruising the streets of Vice City listening to the classics.
