The Super Mario Bros. Movie scores its streaming release date on Netflix. Featuring a lead voice cast of Chris Pratt and Charlie Day, The Super Mario Bros. Movie gave the feature film treatment to the popular Nintendo characters. Originally released on April 5, The Super Mario Bros. Movie had a long and incredibly successful theatrical run.
As per Deadline, the Netflix release date for The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been revealed. Netflix subscribers will be able to catch the animated film on the platform starting on December 3.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie Was a Smash Hit In Theaters – How Will It Fare On Netflix?
This streaming news comes after a massively fruitful run. Despite The Super Mario Bros. Movie getting mixed reviews, it was an immense box office hit, bringing in over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office. That stellar total situates The Super Mario Bros. Movie as the second-highest grossing film of the year, topped only by Barbie.
The timing of this Netflix release is also good for The Super Mario Bros. Movie. In recent weeks, family-friendly films have made a surge on the Netflix Global top 10. Top 10 titles have included Minions, Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse, Monster High: The Movie, Spy Kids, and Hotel Transylvania 2. With so many of these animated and children’s films trending recently, The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be in good company when it hits Netflix in December.
Both of these factors–its theatrical success and recent Netflix trends–will likely contribute to The Super Mario Bros. Movie becoming a Netflix hit. If The Super Mario Bros. Movie comes through, its success will be good for both its franchise and Netflix itself. For Netflix, it will be a good title to have as families come together for the holiday season, and for the film, it will help bolster the potential The Super Mario Bros. 2. With the box office numbers, The Super Mario Bros. Movie sequel already seems inevitable, but Netflix could give the film that extra boost it needs to solidify its prospects.
