Mario teams up with Princess Peach, Toad and Donkey Kong to rescue Luigi and stop Bowser from destroying the Mushroom Kingdom.
After finding success with the Despicable Me, Sing and The Secret Life of Pets films, the Illumination studio has turned its hand to adapting Nintendo’s Mario video games.
Naturally, the story stars plumbers Mario and Luigi (voiced by Chris Pratt and Charlie Day) who are transported into a magical world one day via a green pipe.
Unfortunately, during their journey, they get separated, with Mario going to the Mushroom Kingdom and Luigi ending up in the Dark Lands, which are ruled by Bowser (Jack Black).
Mario befriends Toad (Keegan-Michael Key) in the kingdom and together they implore Princess Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy) to help them rescue Luigi from Bowser’s clutches.
She allows them to tag along on her mission to confront Bowser and stop him from destroying her home.
Fans of the Mario games will get such a thrill out of seeing all the nods, references and Easter eggs packed into this film. There are so many, you might not...
