Is There a Sequel to the Super Mario Movie?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie's upcoming streaming release is an important milestone for the film as it will give easy access to fans who still haven't seen it.
The fun will not stop on Peacock. The hit animated movie is expected to stay on the streamer for four months before transferring to Netflix in December, thus allowing more viewers to rewatch the film.
All the hype surrounding The Super Mario Bros. Movie led many to wonder if a sequel is on the horizon.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie producer and Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri previously said that he "definitely wouldn’t rule anything out" with regard to a sequel.
Considering the film's box office success and audience response, there's a good chance that Super Mario Bros. Movie 2 will be made.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is set to start streaming on Peacock on August 3.
