We still have to wait a long time before our bums sit in their seats for Movie Super Mario Bros.but Illumination and Nintendo’s animated film was rated by the Motion Picture Association (MPA).
Listed Movie Ratingsthe film will be given a PG rating – perhaps not surprising given that both Sonic the Hedgehog films received the same rating (thanks for the tip, Greatsong1!).
The reasoning is also pretty sound. According to the rating, in The Super Mario Bros. Movie will feature “action and mild violence”. That means a lot of jumping Koops, Goombachs and a lot of fire breathers. Maybe we’ll even see Super Mario 64-style asses get burned?
The Chris Pratt-directed film features an all-star cast including Jack Black as Bowser and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad – both apparently getting a musical moment in the film. We first saw the movie just a few weeks ago and you can bet we broke every second. Check out our video below to see what we think of the teaser!
Are you surprised by the rating? What references would you like to see in the film? Let us know in the comments! (Sorry… or not sorry.)
