US copyrights have been filed for 'Nintendo Studios LLC' and 'M Brothers Productions LLC' in relation to the Illumination Mario movie
Did you know the M on Mario's cap stands for Mario?
Browsing through the US government provided public catalog of copyrights, the existence of “Nintendo Studios LLC” and “M Brothers Productions LLC” has been discovered, both being listed as part of the untitled CG-animated Super Mario Bros. motion picture project that’s currently in production at Illumination Entertainment. In case you didn’t know, the abbreviation LLC stands for limited liability company, which is basically a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo allowing Nintendo to separate the accounting for the release of movie.
Illumination’s Mario film will be released in the United States on April 7th, 2023. It’s being distributed by Universal Pictures, but we’ll likely see logos for these newly Nintendo-filed LLCs at the beginning of the movie, and any potential future motion picture projects as well.
