Nintendo has a very strange relationship with the adaptation of it’s properties into film. Before the release of Super Mario Bros. in 1993 and even longer before The Super Marios Bros. Movie in 2023 the closest thing we got to on screen reputation was The Wizard. Basically serving as a promotion tool for the upcoming Super Marios Bros. 3 along with other Nintendo licensed products like the Power Glove, the Nintendo hotline, Zelda, Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man, Contra, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more it certainly is a weird and roundabout way to promote something. Thanks for listening!
