Super Mario Bros. was a live-action adaptation of the popular video game series released back in 1993. Since the film’s cliffhanger ending, fans have been wondering for 20 years what exactly Princess Daisy meant when she said “You’re never going to believe this!”
Well believe it or not that question may finally be answered – in comic form. The Super Mario Bros. sequel is in progress and currently titled Super Mario Bros. 2: The Comic.
Apparently following discussions with original writer Parker Bennett, Steven Applebaum and Ryan Hoss have written a script detailing a new adventure that continues right where the film left off.
The comic plans to revisit the world of Mario, Luigi and Princess Daisy as they explore new locations and creatures inspired by the games, while adapting to the original film’s unique cyberpunk style.
You can follow the comic’s progress, along with pictures, and other information by heading over to the Super Mario Bros. 2: The Comic website.
Whether you were a fan of the original movie, or thought of it as an absolute trainwreck – I think it’s a project that has been 20 years long over due.
