Nintendo Announces Follow-up To Billion-Dollar “Super Mario Bros” Movie

Buckle up people, because we are not done being thrilled by the excellent characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, or even from two plumbing bros that may or may not sound Italian.

To make things even more special, the same directors from the first movie will be returning to helm the second. We…needed…this!

Nintendo Boss and Illumination’s Chris Meledandri Share Plans For “The Super Mario Bros” Sequel

It would have been weird if one of the most successful animated movies of recent memory – second most successful opening weekend overall – didn’t make a comeback, now wouldn’t it? If “MegaMind’s” going to return after so many years, then why won’t Super Mario?

Nintendo Announces Follow-up To Billion-Dollar “Super Mario Bros” Movie

Well, it just did. On March 10, during the annual Mario Day video, Nintendo game director Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination executive Chris Meledandri revealed that a sequel to “The Super Mario Bros” has been greenlit. In fact, work has already started on it.

“[Nintendo] are now working with the folks at Illumination on a new animated film based in the world of Super Mario Bros,” Miyamoto said in the video released to mark Mar10 Day. “The team at Illumination, who worked on The Super Mario Bros. Movie, is also producing this film with Nintendo.”

“I’m thrilled to be here along Miyamoto-san to officially announce our return to Super Mario Bros,” Meledandri said, adding that the animators are “busy at work storyboarding scenes and developing set designs for new environments.” Animation, therefore, is expected to “start” soon.

Co-directors Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic are already attached to the project. Calling it a “sequel” is kind of like a place-holder word for the follow-up of “The Super Mario Bros” because the announcers tried their best to skirt around that word.

“It’ll have a bright and fun story,” Miyamoto teased of the film. “This time we’re thinking about broadening Mario’s world further. We’ll let you know once we’re at the stage where we’re ready to share more.”

A US release date of April 3, 2026 has been confirmed, with the animated movie making its way into many other markets throughout the coming months.
