Why is one of the most-loved gaming characters missing from the mix? According to an article on the film at GamesRadar, both the writer and director said that he was too important to waste on a quick cameo. They didn't want a small appearance for such a major character, so they tried to work out a bigger scene for him. It never worked out, though.
Director Rich More says that if they're lucky enough to do a sequel, Mario might find a role.
