The movie adaptation of Nintendo’s legendary “Super Mario Bros.” series has been postponed to 2023, the company confirmed Monday.

In a statement on Twitter through Nintendo’s official account, “Mario” creator Shigeru Miyamoto told fans that the release date had been pushed back to Spring 2023.

“After consulting with Chris-san, my partner at Illumination on the Super Mario Bros. film, we decided to move the global release to Spring 2023–April 28 in Japan and April 7 in North America,” he clarified. “My deepest apologies but I promise it will be well worth the wait.”

The long-awaited film was announced in a September 2021 online Nintendo event, as it was confirmed it would be created alongside Illumination Studios, the same creative minds behind “Despicable Me” and “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

Chris Pratt is still set to voice the iconic Italian plumber, alongside a voice ensemble cast including Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Jack Black as Bowser.
