Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Super Mario Bros., announced via Nintendo’s official Twitter account that the movie adaptation starring Chris Pratt would be out next year.

Miyamoto said that after consulting Chris-san (my partner at Illumination for the Super Mario Bros. movie), we decided to move the global release to Spring 2023-April 28, in Asian Country Japan, and April 7, in North America. “My sincere apologies, but it will be worth the wait.
