The last couple of years have seen a renewed interest in gaming properties where adaptations for TV and film are concerned, and one of the biggest upcoming projects on that front is going to be fully unveiled very soon.
Nintendo has set a Direct presentation focused solely on the upcoming Super Mario Bros. animated movie, which is being made in collaboration with animation studio Illumination. The Direct presentation is set for October 6 at 1:05 PM PT, and will introduce the film’s world premiere trailer. Nintendo also clarifies that there will be no information revealed on any upcoming games, just in case you were wondering.
The Super Mario Bros. movie is set to star Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya-Taylor Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Toad, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong.
Stay tuned for the movie’s debut trailer later this week.
