The company has also revealed plans for additional video content planned after December 2022 Super Mario film, which is being headlined by Chris Pratt. President of Nintendo Suntaro Furukawa stated, “We will work to build software assets in fields other than games [and] will also work to develop new video content, following on from the Super Mario movie.” This might mean sequels to the film, spin-offs like the rumored Donkey Kong film in which Seth Rogan voices the character, or potential films based on other IPs.

Universal Studios Hollywood is also in the process of adding a Nintendo world, with the Universal Studio’s in Orlando and Singapore soon to follow.
