Super Mario Movie Plot Leaks Online. This Is Just What You’d Expect.
It wasn’t a fever dream. It was true that the cast had been announced for Illumination’s untitled Super Mario movie late last year. If you didn’t know, Jack Black would play Bowser, Charlie Day, and Anya Taylor Joy will play Luigi. However, the casting of Chris Pratt as Mario was what sent the internet wild.
The announcement was quickly followed by the internet memeing all the debacles. Although we may have forgotten the whole thing for several months, recent leaks have confirmed that the film is real and will be available next year.
Giant Bomb’s GrubbSnaxx podcast, Jeff Grubb, a journalist, and insider, allegedly revealed the plot for the Mario movie. The information was leaked to test audiences. This rumor should be treated with caution until it is confirmed. However, the plot sounds just as wild as you would expect. Warning!
Rumors suggest that the film will open with Mario fighting Donkey Kong. Mario falls down a pipe into the Mushroom Kingdom. Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach and then destroys the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario and Luigi team up to bring Bowser down. Mario and Luigi are caught up in a maze of pipes, and they end up running after each other. Kamek, Yoshi, and Bowser get into a brawl over old beef. Bowser is tricked into running into the lava pool, and Mario and Luigi decide to open a plumbing company in the Mushroom Kingdom.
It is a strange plot, but it also fits my expectations. The film is supposed to be musical, but the best thing about it is the possibility of a plumbing song being sung by Mario or Luigi. Grubb said that Mario and Luigi are Brooklyn-educated and that the film does not contain fart jokes. It’s chaos, you see.
