Some interesting announcements were made about the Super Mario Bros. movie during the highly anticipated Nintendo Direct yesterday, and fans are left in a dilemma after the reveal.

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct had some interesting announcements. While we didn’t get a GTA Trilogy announcement as many were expecting, there was a range of other stuff to keep fans engaged.

Some of the notable inclusions in the Nintendo Direct included Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Bayonetta 3 release date announcement, and much more. There were some surprising announcements as well, such as the Nintendo Switch Online expansion pack. The expansion pack brings some classic Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis titles for players out there, so many would be looking forward to it.

Is the Super Mario Bros. Movie Animated?

Another notable announcement included the release date and star cast announcement of the upcoming Super Mario Bros movie. The community was divided about their opinions on the movie, with many not liking the concept of the movie.

The movie packs some noteworthy names from the industry, such as the likes of Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Jack Black among others. This was quite surprising, as pretty much nobody expected these actors to play the roles.

Keeping the debates related to the movie aside, fans were in a dilemma after the announcement. Nintendo decided to take quite a weird approach in the announcement, and we witnessed sort of a slideshow detailing us about the cast of the movie. As a result, fans started wondering whether it is actually an animated movie or a live-action one instead.

Well, the Super Mario Bros. Movie is indeed an animated movie. The actors shown during the presentation are just the voice actors. That being said, the choice of actors still raises a lot of questions.
