Super Mario Brothers Reboot Delayed To July 4th 2020 After Costume Concerns

By David Kahane

Director Griffin Mill has announced a delay in the much anticipated Super Mario Brothers reboot, coming right off the heels of the successful release of Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. The film is now set for the July 4th weekend in 2020.

A trailer, released last month, came under fire from critics and fans alike who thought the costumes looked horrible considering the film’s budget.

“How could it look worse than that old movie?” asked Twitter user @marioztutllyawsum.

The film studio heard fans loud and clear, almost immediately announcing some fixes to the costumes. The redesigns mean the film will miss its Christmas 2019 release. That meant a lot to Mill.

“Taking a little more time to make Mario just right,” Mill tweeted today. “I guess you shouldn’t design something crappy and then expect fans to just think it cool.”

No word if rumors saying Nintendo President Doug Bowser is taking the role of Bowser away from star Josh Gad to play the role himself is true.
