Back when the animated movie was announced in 2018, there has been no update to the film until recently.

Nintendo will be collaborating on this film with Illumination, the animation studio behind the favorite movies Despicable Me and Minions.

Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto is also involved in the film as a producer.
