The upcoming Super Mario movie from Illumination Entertainment may not even get off the ground if the concept isn’t ultimately interesting enough. That’s according to the plucky plumber’s own creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, who offered a brief update on the film during an investors Q&A.
Shigsy, who is serving as producer on the animated movie, revealed that he’s been flirting with the idea of making a Mario flick for ‘many years now.’ He also said that folk had questioned why Ninty didn’t pump out a film a lot sooner, believing that ‘making a game is like making a movie,’ but was quick to point out this isn’t really the case.
Miyamoto-san went on to say he started chatting to Illumination’s Chris Meledandri over two years ago in regards to adapting Mazza to the big screen. ‘Chris is extremely cost-conscious and time-conscious in his quest to make successful movies,’ he said.
