Nintendo has confirmed that it will be co-producing a movie starring Mario with Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind Despicable Me, Minions, and The Secret Life of Pets. According to a tweet from the official Nintendo account, Shigeru Miyamoto will co-produce alongside Chris Meledandri, CEO of Illumination. The partnership was first reported by The Wall Street Journal in November of last year.

The feature-length film will be distributed by Universal but no release date has been decided. This is the first major feature-length film for Nintendo since 1993’s live-action Super Mario Bros. movie starring Bob Hoskins, Dennis Hopper, and John Leguizamo — a film that its director recently called “a harrowing experience. It was hell.” This one, thankfully and mercifully, will be animated.
