Calling it now, the Mario movie is going to be an origin story; how he got to the mushroom kingdom and met Peach, Much like the live action Mario will be younger and is missing either his mustache or outfit or both until the last 15 mins🤔😐

Wasnt able to see the Direct due to work, but Kirby and Bayo 3 make me ugly cry, Castlevania and ActRiser look sick, and not having Charles Martinet voice Mario killed any hype I had for the Mario Also I wanted Dread
