They are joined by Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.

The film is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri p.g.a. and by Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo.

The film is co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo and will be released worldwide by Universal Pictures.

“Mario and Luigi are two of the most beloved heroes in popular culture, and we are honored to have the unique opportunity to work so closely with Shigeru Miyamoto and the widely imaginative team at Nintendo to bring these characters to life in an animated movie, unlike any film Illumination has made to date,” said Chris Meledandri, Illumination’s Founder and CEO and outside director of Nintendo.

“We are collaborating with Chris and his experienced team to create not just a character-licensed film but a new piece of entertainment that brings Super Mario Bros. to life on the screen and allows everyone to enjoy it whether or not they know about the game,” added Shigeru Miyamoto, Representative Director, Fellow of Nintendo.

“The production so far is constructive and going very well, and both parties are learning a lot from each other. We humbly ask that fans wait just a little longer for the premiere, and we hope they look forward to seeing the unique characters from Super Mario Bros. on the big screen.”
