Nintendo nearing agreement with Illumination Entertainment for animated Mario movie
Posted 4 days ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 29 Comments
The Wall Street Journal is reporting on a massive agreement that is wrapping up between Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment. According to the publication, the two sides will be teaming up for an animated Super Mario Bros. movie. Illumination Entertainment has produced animated films for Universal Pictures in the past.
The Wall Street Journal says that one sticking point is how Nintendo wants to ensure it will be involved enough in the creative process. Shigeru Miyamoto has apparently been part of the talks and will likely be a producer on the movie, along with Chris Meledandri.
Currently, just one Mario movie is planned, though the agreement could allow for more. If everything goes through, Illumination’s Paris studio Mac Guff will animate the project. Since it’s in early stages of development, don’t expect to see the film for a few years.
We Are Fuzzy has revealed Sleep Tight, a new arcade-style twin-stick shooter for Switch. The game involves building the perfect pillow fort and defending a childhood bedroom from monsters.
We Are Fuzzy has quite a bit of talent on board. Maxx Burman, the creative director behind Westworld’s opening credits, is working on the game. An artist who has been involved with Game of Thrones, Far Cry 5, Titanfall, and Iron Man 3 is working on the project as well, in addition to Disney character artist Dylan Ekren and Ubisoft / Far Cry designer Oscar Mar.
Sleep Tight is slated for Q1 2018 on Switch. View the first trailer below.
