Release Date and Trailer for the “Super Mario Bros. Movie” Sequel

Release Date and Trailer for the “Super Mario Bros. Movie” Sequel

The announcement of the follow-up to the critically acclaimed “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” from last year seems fitting on Mario Day.

Just one day shy of the original’s third anniversary, on April 3, 2026, the U.S. will see the release of the title-less sequel, according to a video that Nintendo of America posted on Sunday. Chris Meledandri, the CEO of animation studio Illumination, made the announcement.

The 2024 Oscars: How to watch (and stream)

Storyboarding the tale, animators at Illumination Studios Paris, and the directors of the original, Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, stated Meledandri in the video. The animation process is scheduled to start shortly.

Meledandri and Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo refrained from providing any details about the plot of the story other than to say that it is “based on the world of Super Mario Bros.” “Based on” can refer to a multitude of things given the vastness of that universe in games, which includes fighting, kart racing, a variety of sports, and the well-known platforming that inspired the original.

Why are the Oscars called ‘the Oscars’?

Universal Pictures, the parent company of Illumination, released the first “Super Mario Bros. Movie” on April 4, 2023. It went on to make $1.4 billion worldwide. Illumination and Nintendo will work together on the film, much like they did with the last one.

Regarding voice cast, nothing is known yet. Chris Pratt played Mario in the original, Anya Taylor-Joy played Peach, Charlie Day played Luigi, and Jack Black played Bowser.

In addition, Nintendo has stated that it is collaborating with Sony Pictures on a live-action version of “The Legend of Zelda” in addition to this sequel. Since the announcement, no more information on the cast or the release date has been made public.

In case you’ve never heard of “Mario Day,” It is a fan-made holiday honoring a fictional world founded on an error in our calendar, akin to May 4th’s Star Wars Day (“May the 4th be with you”) and April 26th’s Alien Day (named for the planet LV-426 from “Aliens”). In Mario’s case, March 10th, the shortened version of Sunday’s date, looks like March 10.
