Move over Detective Pikachu — Nintendo has a brand new movie partnership with animation studio Illumination Entertainment that will get you hooked on the brothas’! According to a recent Tweet from Nintendo, the game and film studio are partnering up to create a new movie Super Mario movie.

Even better, we know that Nintendo will hopefully not have the same quality concerns as they did in the past. On board for the project is Mario series creator Shigeru Miyamoto as Co-producer, alongside Minions creator Chris Meledandri.

Where have you heard of Illumination Entertainment? For better or worse, they are the studio that created the Despicable Me trilogy, Minions, and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. They’ve even been nominated for a flurry of Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards.

This film will be stacking up against other film projects Nintendo is putting out, including Detective Pikachu. Of course, Detective Pikachu is not being created by Illumination but is (instead) being created by Japanese-based Toho Company  (My Hero Academia, Psycho-Pass) and being published by Universal Pictures.

Obviously, this isn’t the first time Mario has been translated into a Super Mario movie. In fact, the 1993 Super Mario Bros. live-action film has become something of an internet legend for being universally panned by critics and in box office sales. Of course, the movie’s history has mystique of its own, noted as a “harrowing” experience by co-director Rokcy Morton in 2016 with a script changed mid-shoot.

Little outside of the tweet is known about the project, but you can check out the official tweet below:
