According to the report, the companies have been in negotiations for a year and the fact Universal (which finances and distributes Illumination's movie) has partnered with Nintendo for several theme parks was helpful.

Nintendo and Universal haven't announced anything officially.

Nintendo's extended hiatus from the silver screen might finally be coming to a close.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment are in talks to create a CGI film based on the historic Super Mario franchise.

Illumination Entertainment now has four untitled films slated for release in 2021, 2022, and 2023. A representative told Business Insider over email: "We have nothing to announce on this topic".

Universal's Illumination Entertainment is nearing a deal with Nintendo to make an animated feature based on the popular Super Mario Bros. videogame, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Furthermore, sources claim how Nintendo would be involved in the development of the film, meaning it will likely skew closer to the usual portrayal of the franchise than the infamous live-action adaption that was released in 1993.

As well as the main series, Mario and the associated cast of characters have appeared in numerous spin-off titles such as "Mario Kart", "Dr. Mario", "Paper Mario" and "Super Smash Bros". Outside animated "Pokémon" movies, Nintendo has rarely put its characters in starring film roles, with guest spots for various Nintendo characters in movies like "Pixels" and "Wreck-it Ralph" in recent years.
