The Super Mario Bros. Movie – Power Up Edition

Prepare yourself for some classic Mario and Luigi fun. This iconic duo is now in homes everywhere, it’s one of the best animated films to come out this year. The plot and illustrations are wonderful, and the kids loved watching this movie.

Now if you’re not aware of the concept of the movie let me share a little bit about it: The movie tells the story of two Brooklyn plumbers who are brothers and best friends: Mario, the brave one with the “let’s-a go” attitude, and the perpetually anxious Luigi, who would prefer to go nowhere. We open with the Super Mario Brothers reckoning with their struggling plumbing business, and wind up in a whirlwind adventure through Mushroom Kingdom.

Through their journey, we meet a cast of familiar, lovable characters, ultimately uniting together to defeat the power-hungry villain, Bowser. The Super Mario Bros. Movie takes what millions of gamers worldwide have loved for thirty-five years and levels it up to a new and breathtaking cinematic experience.

A stellar voice cast, including Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, and Chris Pratt as Mario, graces the animated film based on the beloved video-game series of the same name.

The Power Up Edition includes these special features:

  • Getting to Know the Cast
  • Leveling Up: Making The Super Mario Bros. Movie
  • The Super Mario Bros. Movie Field Guide
  • “Peaches” Lyric Video
  • Leadership Lessons from Anya Taylor-Joy

If you’re a fan of the game I’m sure you’ll also love the movie, but I must be honest there’s nothing like playing the game…LOL!! As he often does when acting, I will also add that Jack Black did a fantastic job, as he genuinely made this movie come to life for me.


You can grab your DVD now at many retails store and don’t forget to grab some popcorn while you add it.
