In a recent interview with ET Online, Chris Pratt, known for his roles in franchises like Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, shed some light on the highly anticipated sequel to the Super Mario Bros. Movie.
While the first film continues its successful run in theaters, accumulating over one billion dollars in box office revenue, Pratt revealed that news about the sequel will be unveiled soon.
Pratt highlighted the impact of the ongoing writers’ strike on the production timeline of the Super Mario Bros. Movie sequel. He expressed support for the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and their decision to pause production for the right reasons.
Pratt emphasized the importance of ensuring that negotiations are complete and that the writers are comfortable before moving forward with discussions about the sequel.
Gratitude for the Film’s Success
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the sequel, Pratt expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support received thus far. He acknowledged the surprising success of the film, which has captured the hearts of audiences across generations worldwide.
Pratt described the Super Mario Bros. Movie as a fun, funny, cute, and touching film, and he expressed his amazement at being a part of such a remarkable project.
Aiming for Box Office Records
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has already defied expectations and is on track to potentially become the highest-grossing animated film in history. Its current contender for the title is Frozen II, which earned just over 1.45 billion dollars in 2019.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has accumulated an impressive 1.313 billion dollars, leaving it in need of a final push to achieve this monumental milestone.
As fans eagerly await confirmation of the sequel’s production, attention is also focused on the collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination for a Zelda movie.
While details regarding both projects are yet to be finalized, anticipation continues to build among fans who are excited to see their favorite video game characters come to life on the big screen once again.
