Reggie Fils-Aime Discussed The Mario Movie & Other Entertainment Partnerships

nintendo company logo

An E3 2018 IGN interview with Reggie Fils-Aime has provided us with more information about the Mario movie, as well as other entertainment partnerships. According to IGN, “Fils-Aime said ‘conversations are ongoing’ noting that Shigeru Miyamoto is ‘actively involved’ in those discussions”. Reggie also said that “certainly our focus from a Nintendo perspective as well as working with such an accomplished partner like Illumination is to make sure that what is created is something both fans will love as well as it will be a great introduction to folks who are not as familiar with the world of Mario.”

As for other entertainment partnerships, Reggie says that “we see ourselves as making worldwide consumers smile through our intellectual property. Fundamentally, we do that four ways. We do it with mobile. We do it with our licensed relationships with other companies [like Kellogg’s]…We have other entertainment, which is where we put Universal Studios and Illumination. Then we have our dedicated video game business. This is a key part of our strategy. This is an area we are having a range of conversations. Just like we did for the other big two partnerships, when we have something to announce, we will.”

  1. Well, let’s just say that they are taken there time to make it more perfect and more understanding of what the fans want for a while. I remember last time that Reggie said that there will be a Nintendo movie for the next few years.

    Also, SSF1991, you spell nothing wrong.

  2. ||At least lord Miyamoto is supervising the movie weaponry, he is more than capable of handling it. In the other hand the sonic movie will fail so hard because the segans are still trapped in the 90’s thinking sonic is the greatest character ever…||

    ||Soon the cattle will feel the true power of the first order…||

    1. hey quick question, why are there a bunch of people who insist on playing weird personas on this website? it’s really weird and embarrassing and also i don’t think anyone, including sonic fans themselves, think sonic is the best video game character anymore so like why even bring it up?????

      1. Let the kids play man… i have been here since the Wii U flop and stopped asking questions, just enjoying the view jajaja.

      2. They are mimicking “Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis”. They were the first to do that as I have seen back in the “My3DSNews” days. I see nothing wrong with it.
        (Why get embarrassed over something like an internet persona tho?)

    Welp, it’s an “introduction to Mario” so expect the same old done-to-death, or excuse me “iconic” kidnapping plot, no fanservice to anything beyond the basic stuff in the main series,no unexpected cameos from spinoffs and definitely not an adaptation or reference of one of the more movie-like Mario RPG plots with actual source material for a movie -_-

    If I was making a movie to introduce Mario to new audiences, I’d go straight into the more interesting plots to hook people’s interest, as the main series plot basically happens every Tuesday and isn’t notable in-universe anymore. But Nintendo would never dare :/
