According to reports, Nintendo is satisfied with the upcoming CG Mario movie produced by Despicable Me and Minion Studio Illumination. According to Shigeru Miyamoto, more movies based on Nintendo’s property may be in production.
This news comes from Chronicles of Video Games, Which reported the latest Q&A session of Nintendo’s recent financial performance briefing. Among them, Miyamoto told investors that the upcoming Mario movie is basically completed, and Nintendo is very positive about it.
However, don’t get too excited for now-Nintendo does not plan to release this movie in advance, even though it is basically finished. It is still scheduled to be released during the 2022 holiday. According to reports, Shigeru Miyamoto said that Nintendo really hopes to meet the expectations of fans through this Mario movie, so it will use the extra time to continue to perfect the movie before it is released next year.
In Miyamoto’s other discussions about the film, he said that Nintendo is planning to make more movies based on its other attributes, on the grounds that people want to experience these attributes in various ways (not just video games). He said that Nintendo will make each movie one by one, so as not to make multiple movies, which may affect the quality of each movie.
These comments were made a few days after rumors about Donkey Kong movie dubbed by Seth Rogen in Mario movies began to circulate, as pointed out VGCOnly time will tell us what the next Nintendo movie will be, but considering that Donkey Kong and Cranky Kong, who will be dubbed by Fred Armisen, are already cast, the Donkey Kong movie sounds like a safe bet.
