The Super Mario movie that Nintendo and Illumination Studios have been working on has been gradually getting worked on. The movie had been previously slated for a release this December. However, this will no longer be the case.

Shigeru Miyamoto sent a message to fans on Twitter via Nintendo’s official accounts. Miyamoto says that “we decided to move the global release to Spring 2023–April 28 in Japan and April 7 in North America”. You can see Nintendo’s tweet about the matter down below.

This is Miyamoto. After consulting with Chris-san, my partner at Illumination on the Super Mario Bros. film, we decided to move the global release to Spring 2023–April 28 in Japan and April 7 in North America. My deepest apologies but I promise it will be well worth the wait.
