New Super Mario Bros. Animated Movie Set for 2026 Release

The next Super Mario Bros. movie has a release date – and it's set for 2026. Nintendo boss Shigeru Miyamoto shared the news on Twitter last night. He announced that a Nintendo Direct would be broadcast, but he first wanted to share that the release date for the new Super Mario animated movie in Japan is April 24, 2026. Miyamoto mentioned that they are working with the Illumination team to make it a fun movie, so everyone should look forward to it.

The first movie, released in 2023, features the titular plumber (voiced by Chris Pratt) and his brother Luigi (Charlie Day) as they are transported from Brooklyn to the Mushroom Kingdom on a mission to save both worlds from Bowser (Jack Black) and his army. The voice cast also includes Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong. No casting information for the next movie has been revealed yet.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie became the highest-grossing movie based on a video game and the third-highest-grossing animated movie of all time, following The Lion King and Frozen 2. It was also the second-highest-grossing movie of 2023, surpassed only by Barbie at last year's box office.

The new Super Mario Bros. movie will hit the big screen on April 24, 2026. In the meantime, check out our guide to the biggest upcoming movies for the rest of this year.
