RUMOR: French voice actor for Bowser in The Super Mario Bros. Movie claims a trilogy is in the works
Super Mario Bros. 3: The Movie?
Spoiler alert! If you saw The Super Mario Bros. Movie and stayed all the way past the credits, you know there’s a very clear tease for another film down the line. Today, it seems there might be at least two more movies coming down the pipe.
Jérémie Covillault is the actor behind Bowser in the French version of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and he’s done a quick video interview concerning numerous elements of the film. At the 4:40 mark in particular, Covillault makes quick mention that fans can expect the Mario movies to turn into a trilogy, which is the first we’ve heard of that anywhere.
It’s certainly unclear where Covillault got the information from, but as he’s a voice actor on the first film, you’d think he’d at least have some insight into where things are going. Nintendo and Universal are yet to confirm any follow-up plans for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and even with a sequel teased in the first film, this is the first we’ve heard of a trilogy.
Even though this information comes from a legitimate, trustworthy source, please don’t take it as 100% confirmed. There’s always a chance the actor could have gotten their information wrong or misspoke in some way. We’ll consider this one plausible for now, but wait for an official confirmation from Nintendo/Universal on the matter.
