Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle composer Grant Kirkhope recently took part in an interview with GamingReinvented. At one point in the interview, the animated Super Mario Bros. movie was discussed. Kirkhope revealed that he’d love to compose for the movie, saying that it would be “my absolute dream”. Kirkhope also feels that “I know Mario inside out and I’ve already written for live orchestra, so I could do it easily”. Here’s what was said about the movie in full:
GR: Wow, that sounds great! However, did you hear about the new Mario movie that’s coming soon? Would you want to write for that at some point down the line?
GK: Yeah. I would love to write for that, it’d be my absolute dream. To be the composer would be fantastic. It’s by Illumination isn’t it?
GK: I would love to do that then. If there’s any way I could do it, I would. It’d be fantastic fun.
GR: It’d certainly have a great soundtrack if you were responsible for it!
GK: Well yeah, but I just feel like… you know, I know Mario inside out and I’ve already written for live orchestra, so I could do it easily. So, I’d love to work on it. It’d be a great project to work on.
