Our Fun Kids Breakfast Show presenter George managed to catch up with her earlier in the month to talk all about the new film…

Who is Mario?

Mario is a video game legend –– but how did he jump out of the console and onto our screens?

Well, Super Mario Bros was the game that made Mario a household name.

That’s the one where he had to jump over obstacles, stomp on enemies, and collect power-ups like mushrooms all to rescue a princess named Peach from a bad guy named Bowser!

And he had to do all of this while wearing his signature overalls and hat…

Super Mario Bros was a huge hit across the world.

Over the years, Nintendo released many more Mario games, each one with new levels, enemies, and challenges. The world just couldn’t get enough of the mustachio’ed plumber!

One of the most popular Mario games is Super Mario 64. It was special because it was the first Mario game to be in 3D, which meant that the world felt more immersive and lifelike.

It was like Mario was able to step out of the screen and into our living rooms! Now, you might recognise Mario from Super Mario Odyssey on the Switch – or everyone’s favourite, Mario Kart!

Mario has been entertaining gamers of all ages for almost 40 years – and now, in 2023, we have a brand new Super Mario Bros movie – and it’s a nod to the entire Mario world ––

With help from Princess Peach, Mario gets ready to square off against the all-powerful Bowser to stop his plans from conquering the world…

If you’re a big fan of Mario and you like seeing Mario do Mario things, this sounds like a proper lovely time!
