How Super Mario Bros. Movie Post-Credits Scenes Build The Sequel
It seems that humans from Earth and magical creatures from the mushroom kingdom can now go willy-nilly between dimensions. The film’s climax took place on the streets of Brooklyn when the evil turtle dragon Bowser (Jack Black) battled the Mario Bros. for a magic star. All the talking animals and mutant creatures were there to witness the fire. After the fight was settled, each was sucked back into their proper dimension. The Mario Bros. themselves chose to return to the Mushroom Kingdom as they seemed more comfortable there now.
The part of the story that the audience didn’t see was what it would look like if a mushroom kingdom were lost without a leader on Earth. It appears that a sequel to The Super Mario Bros. Movie would feature an introductory sequence of Yoshi hatching and running amok in Brooklyn before the titular Bros unite to capture him.
It is worth noting that the 1995 game Yoshi’s Island was a prequel. Yoshi was taking care of a little Mario who was accidentally dropped onto the island by a clumsy stork. The Super Mario Bros. Movie featured a flashback to Mario and Luigi as toddlers… will there be more baby Mario in the sequel? And if so, will he be just as annoying as in the game? Will there be time travel?
It is possible. Die-hard Nintendo nerds might point to the 1993 MS-DOS game Mario’s Time Machine as a precedent. This game would eventually make its way to the NES and SNES and featured Mario traveling through human history and retrieving remarkable artifacts stolen by Bowser – also using a time machine. It was an educational game, but if Universal wants to keep us on our toes, then Mario’s Time Machine would be the way to go.
