The Super Mario Bros. Movie is going to catch the eyes of families wanting the bring their kids to watch. If you are wondering if it is a movie to bring the kiddos to, the answer is definitely yes. At the beginning of the Final Trailer, Luigi is trapped in a cage hovering over lava. In another cage, Luma yells out to Luigi stating that there is “fresh meat for the grinder” and that “the only hope is the sweet release of death.”
Throughout the whole movie, you can expect humor and language very similar to this tone. However, the violence and language really won’t kick up more than this. The Super Mario Bros. Movie is rated PG. What this rating foreshadows is that the violence and language will be very similar to the extent of violence that you see in Mario video games. Nothing too over the edge, but something just enough such as Red Shells, Green Shells, Banana Peels, and some fire.
This isn’t the first Mario movie to ever hit the big screens and it may not be the last. If this movie does well at the box office, expect a sequel to be announced in the near future. Mario is too big of an icon not to take advantage of his entire universe.
You can also expect to see little easter eggs that allude to several other Mario video games in his franchise. We got a tease of a Mario Kart scene in the trailers that showcased Rainbow Road. It has also been rumored that Rosalina will make an appearance in the movie at some point. We already saw the Blue Luma Star in a cage talking to Luigi, so these characters would be a hint towards the Super Mario Galaxy franchise. In terms of other Mario video game franchises that may be shown, there are a ton to choose from and a ton that can possibly be featured in the movie.
The release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie is less than a month away and you will be able to start viewing Mario and friends’ next adventure on April 5 in theatres near you.
