Nintendo has officially confirmed that a Super Mario movie is in the works and now we’ve got a little more info one what we can expect!

Right off the bat we can’t help but to think the film is in good hands. Other titles underneath Meleandri’s belt include Minions and the Despicable Me series. Though we have speculated about the film in the past, we are a little surprised to see it slip through the fingertips of Universal Studios, but it seems like a solid foundation thus far until we learn more details!
This is one of many announcements coming today out of a Nintendo strategy briefing, including new Mario Kart news. Stay tuned while we present the info straight from its source right here with DFTG!
