Love or hate 1993’s Super Mario Bros. movie, there’s no doubt that our favourite Italian plumber’s representation on the silver screen hasn’t been all that flash.

That could change with the latest partnership to come out of Nintendo HQ, with post-Super Mario Odyssey fever pointing to a return to the silver screen for gaming’s most iconic mascot.

Nintendo today confirmed reports — which have dated back to November — that it is working on a new Super Mario movie with Illumination.

You might recognise some of that studio’s past works: Despicable MeMinions, and The Secret Life Of Pets. Safe to say the new movie is in smart hands.

Industry stalwart Shigeru Miyamoto will co-produce the film, alongside Illumination CEO, Chris Meledandri.

Reuters is reporting that the feature-length film will be distributed by Universal Studios, although there’s currently no release date so we probably shouldn’t expect anything in the near future.
