Super Mario Movie is a upcoming 2022 Movie about Mario, and the others. This film is rated PG for brief action and mild rude humor.
In December 2014, information leaked that Sony Pictures had made a deal with Nintendo to create an animated film based on the Mario franchise, but it never materialized. In November 2017, it was reported that Nintendo would be teaming up with Universal Pictures and Illumination to make an animated Mario film. However, in January 2018, former Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima stated that a deal has not been finalized, but that an announcement will come soon. Kimishima hopes that if the deal is successful, a 2020 release date would be possible. By the end of January 2018, Nintendo announced that the movie will be made with Shigeru Miyamoto and Chris Meledandri co-producing. According to Miyamoto, he knew that the process of making a film was far different from that of making a video game, and wanted a film expert to lead the effort. In Nintendo's work with Universal Parks & Resorts to create Mario-based attractions, Miyamoto had met Meledandri, and they had several discussions. Miyamoto found Meledandri's creative process similar to his own, and felt he would be the proper lead for a Mario film. They had started more earnest discussions of the film as early as 2016, knowing that if they felt it wasn't working that they could easily walk away. However, by the time of the official announcement, Miyamoto said that they have good discussions over the screenplay and feels good progress to a proper film. Meledandri stated that the film was a "priority" for Illumination and that it will most likely come out in 2022. He added that Miyamoto will be "front and center" with creating the movie. In January 2020, Nintendo's President Shuntaro Furukawa stated that the film is "moving along smoothly" with the film aiming for release in 2022. Furukawa stated that Nintendo would own the rights to the film, and both Nintendo and Universal would fund the production of the film.
