McDonald's Japan shows off their upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie-themed Happy Meal toys
Available starting Dec. 23rd
A few branches of McDonald’s locations around the world have started offering Super Mario Bros. movie-themed Happy Meals, and Japan is about to get in on the action. Anyone snagging a Happy Meal at select McDonald’s locations in Japan starting Dec. 23rd, 2022 will be able to take home one of the eight toys you see above.
As we’ve mentioned before, the original plan was for the Super Mario Bros. movie to be out close to the end of this year. The movie ended up getting delayed to April 7th, 2023, but some advertising tie-ins were already set for the 2022 release. That’s led to some McDonald’s locations getting their Mario Happy Meals a bit early.
We also got a sneak peek at what the Happy Meal boxes will look like. As you can see, the boxes feature Mario, Princess Peach and Toad front-and-center, as they’ll no doubt be the stars of the film.
