More Nintendo films are likely on the way, teases Miyamoto

The Super Mario Bros. Movie launched earlier this week to a great deal of success, bringing in over $120 million during its first two days in cinemas. Thanks to its huge opening, it is safe to assume that more Nintendo adaptations are set to be on their way. This fact has seemingly been confirmed by Nintendo themselves, with Shigeru Miyamoto teasing future collaborations between them and animation studio Illumination.

In an interview conducted by ScreenRant, both Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination CEO Chris Meladandri were asked about the prospects for future Nintendo films, to which Miyamoto stated:

“There’s nothing I can really comment on at the moment. But we started with the fact that we have a shared vision of creation, so I think there’ll be opportunities in the future. Like Chris mentioned, there’s nothing we can share now. But I’m sure we will continue working on this partnership.”

Speaking of, Meladandri offered additional hope regarding the future, saying “We are so focused right now on this movie, all the way up to Wednesday, and how the audience engages with the film. Nintendo and Illumination have had a really rewarding collaboration. Mr. Miyamoto and his colleagues have invited me to join the board of directors of Nintendo, and we’re working together into the future with me in that capacity. But it’s hard for us to talk about anything else at this time.”

With how successful The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been already, there is undoubtedly a lot of talk happening behind the scenes, and so it would not be surprising to see a sequel announced sooner rather than later.
