If you’re like us, you’ve been obsessed with Mario games since you were young. Now we get to see him and the whole crew take the screen in a new animated film, The Super Mario Bros. Movie!
Please, the penguins are too cute and we can’t get over how hyper Toad is. The Super Mario Bros. Movie will hit cinemas on April 7, 2023, so get your gamer friends and don your favorite Mario merch for the show!
Now that we have another Mario adaption on the way, it has us reflecting on a few of our favorites from the past. There have been quite a few video games made into films but these are the three that top our list.
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu
Any time you tell us Ryan Reynolds is going to be the voice of one of the most beloved animated characters in the world, we’re gonna be happy. Initially, we weren’t sure how the film would play out, but when we left the theater we couldn’t wait to watch it again!
It’s officially Spooky Season so you know we have to mention Silent Hill! A lot of things have been said about this adaptation but it truly holds a special place in our heart. And it is pretty much guaranteed to make you hesitate when you turn off the lights at night.
Sonic The Hedgehog
Let’s start things off by expressing our eternal gratitude to the animation team for changing how Sonic looked. The first version was a thing of nightmares. Moving on, this movie quickly became one of our favorites. It’s easy to get lost in the fun world of golden rings, chili dogs, and chaos emeralds. Not to mention Jean Ralphio from Parks and Recreation is the voice of Sonic, an excellent choice in our opinion.
Will the new Super Mario Bros. Movie make its way into the ranks of our favorite video game adaptations? We’ll have to wait and see on April 7, 2023! For now, we’ll just be replaying our favorite Mario video games while we wait.
