The Super Mario Bros. Movie to Stream on Peacock August 3
Look, the Mario movie is awesome on the big screen - but when will we get to see it at home?
Nintendo’s merry band of heroes are burning up the box office, with The Super Mario Bros. Movie collecting over $1 billion at the global box office and counting. We obviously know how to watch the movie in theaters (just go buy a ticket!) — but what about when we can watch it at home on streaming?
Universal Pictures and Illumination have announced that the film will is available now to rent and/or purchase on digital platforms.
When can you stream The Super Mario Bros. Movie on Peacock?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie will stream on Peacock starting August 3, 2023.
The hit animated title will stream first on NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service, which has been home to all of Universal’s recent releases like NOPE, Knock at the Cabin, Cocaine Bear, The Bad Guys and more.
The long-awaited, animated Mario movie features the voice work of Chris Pratt as Mario; Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach; Charlie Day as Luigi; Jack Black as Bowser; Keegan-Micheal Key as Toad; and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. Considering the love for Nintendo’s favorites, the film is having a bit of a cultural moment these days, with Black’s hilarious "Peach" ballad even charting on Billboard.
Shigeru Miyamoto — creator of Mario, Luigi, and a slew of other video game icons — produced the film alongside Illumination founder/CEO Chris Meledandri. Teen Titans GO! veterans Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath directed from a screenplay written by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru).
"Whether it’s superhero movies or video game movies, when people don’t have a sort of love, affinity, or understanding of what makes them special, they aren’t authentic," Jelenic remarked during an interview with DiscussingFilm. "Like, those early superhero movies weren’t great because the people making them didn’t understand what made these characters cool. I think it’s the same thing with video games, which is like, 'These are popular! Let’s see how much money we can make.'"
There’s been no word yet on any potential sequel(s), but considering the first movie is an unstoppable hit featuring tons of characters and worlds that could easily spinoff, it stands to reason more adventures are assuredly on the way soon.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is still playing in theaters everywhere.
