It's-a me!

Mario is getting ready for his close-up! Nintendo announced that they're teaming up with Illumination Entertainment for an animated film about the video game hero, with help from original Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Chris Meledandri, one of the men behind  The Secret Life of PetsDespicable Me, and  Ice Age.
