Super Mario Movie Has Been Delayed

Given the incredible success of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, there are many who likely were waiting with anticipation for the Super Mario Movie that is being made by Illumination (the team behind Minions and more). It was originally set for release in December of this year, and was going to star Chris Pratt, Jack Black, Anya Taylor-Joy and more. Notice though that we said “originally set”.

Now, obviously, this is bad news for those who wanted the Super Mario Movie to come out sooner rather than later. However, it could be that like the original Sonic movie, they’re doing a delay to make sure they have the best movie possible. Also, they probably don’t want to hear that “Sega Does What Nintendon’t” if their movie doesn’t match what Sonic’s did. Just saying…
