Quote from: article
After publication, Arad denied to BuzzFeed News via email that the Super Mario deal had closed, saying his negotiations with Nintendo were “just the beginning.”

Now, he could just be under NDA or something, but it seems like it isn't confirmed for now.

Whoa, wait, for real? You'd figure there'd be some inherent Sony/Nintendo conflict, but I suppose that's just on the level of consoles.

In a recent interview, the co-director of the movie said they envisioned the movie as the "real story" and the games were a bad adaption of the events. That was an idea alright.


Avid Arad sure gets around.

I thought it was decent as a movie on its own and I liked the minor callbacks to things and elements they threw in (especially Big Bertha!), but it was still bad as a "Mario" movie. Throwing in all that dinosaur time travel [dukar] was such a stupid ****ing idea for a Mario movie, and Mario and Luigi barely even wear the overall+shirt+hat combo (WHICH THEY SHOULD HAVE WORN FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE FILM). Even when they do, they don't even use the proper red/green shirt, blue overalls configuration that was already the standard by 1993!

Sony Pictures and Nintendo appear to have closed a deal for the animated feature film rights to the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise, according to a series of emails discovered in the massive trove of hacked Sony files recently leaked to the media.

“I am the proud father of mario the animated film [sic],” producer Avi Arad told Sony studio chief Amy Pascal in an email dated Oct. 23, 2014, with the subject line “Mario.” Arad then forwarded Pascal separate images of him with Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, the latter of which included the message, “Happy ceo, lets get together, it’s the mother load. [sic]”

Pascal forwarded that email to Tom Rothman, who heads up Sony Pictures subsidiary TriStar Pictures. “Avi closed Mario brothers,” she said. “Animated.”

[On Oct. 24, Arad sent an email to Sony Pictures Animation president of production Michelle Raimo Kouyate thanking her for a congratulatory basket she sent him filled with Mario Bros. merchandise. “Thank you Avi!” Kouyate responded. “Let’s build a Mario empire!” Kouyate also sent a photo of the basket to Pascal, and said, “I can think of 3-4 movies right out of the gate on this. So huge!”

We all know how the previous movie turned out, but with this being animated it'll probably keep a lot more to the source material. Pretty exciting stuff.
