Where's Yoshi, damnit!?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been an incredible success, securing the spot of second highest-grossing animated movie of all-time. That achievement has surpassed all expectations, including those of Chris Pratt.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Pratt spoke up about the movie’s success along with the sequel.
“We’re in the midst of this writers’ strike, and so everything has been paused and [put] on hold for the right reasons. I really do support the WGA and our writers. When the negotiations have been completed, and the writers feel comfortable moving forward, then it’ll be time to start talking about what’s next for that.
We’re so grateful for the support, though. [It’s] really shocking to me how successful that movie’s been. I mean, I expected that people would love it the way I was excited about it, but it’s truly multigenerational around the world. People love it. They love Mario… It’s a really fun, funny, cute, heartwarming movie and, God, I can’t believe I’m part of it.”
According to Pratt, once the writers strike is cleared up, we should expect some news on The Super Mario Bros. Movie’s follow-up ‘soon.’
