The Super Mario movie, currently in development at Illumination (Known for Despicable Me and Secret Life of Pets), is slated for 2022. In a recent feature from Fast Company, Shuntaro Furukawa, the president of Nintendo, stated that the company was looking into creating animation content for other series.
"Animation, in general, is something that we are looking into, and not just this franchise,"
While the quote doesn't hint at anything, he does mention that the company is avoiding cutting into game development. In a corporate meeting last year, Nintendo said that they have "already embarked on multiple other visual content projects" which still leaves little to no clue.
Author's Note: Man, I hope that allegedly cancelled Star Fox stop motion animation project gets revived. Guess we'll see. Thoughts? Let us know below!
