Nintendo wants to try their hands in Movies

And don't worry they said they want to try as much as they can by themselves first so there's little chance for having Hollywood [tornado fang] it all up.

Can we say possible Nintendo Movie Universe in 2-3 years? 8D

I'm guessing they try anime first, which they absolutely should do. A lot of their franchises would make amazing cartoons.

The Kid Icarus anime shorts were okay, but I'm not sure if I want full Nintendo anime shows.

Yeah the articles I read either said they were going to make the movies anime like or 3D animated like ala Pixar.  But it's specifically movies not anime shows.  So no TV anime shows, at least for now.

I think they'd make great, short, 13 episode series. Nothing DBZ-ish at all, but I think they could do a nice short, compact, easily watchable series for Metroid, Kid Icarus, Star Fox, F-Zero, and others.

Yeah I agree those series would make some good animes.

I think the key is to make them short and simple. They have Pokemon for their DBZ-ish, long running anime. Lol

Certainly not Mario. That would just be... strange.

They "could" do Mario, but yeah it'd be weird.

Yeah I guess but at the moment they are talking full length movies here not anime series.

If they tackle a full length Mario movie I hope it's some sort of origin story.

Sorry my mind isn't at its sharpest at the moment.

Mario cannot nor should not be a live action movie. Other franchises, sure. A Zelda or Metroid movie could be really good (or reaaaaaaaaally awful).

I don't think they're considering anything Live Action.

Does that mean another live-action film?

We’ve already tried that, so perhaps not this time.

-Is the intent to be like (3D animation companies) Disney and Pixar?

We have a strong stable of IP, so we’d like to be able to do something like them. So we’ll keep that in mind as we work towards making this a reality.

A Metroid movie could be nice and eerie, with an X-Files sort of atmosphere.

I want a proper F-Zero movie, damnit.

I'd also be willing to settle for Luigi's Mansion, Meta Knight's Revenge or Punch-Out!!

Ooh I'd love to see a movie based off of Meta Knight's Revenge or Luigi's Mansion.

F-Zero would be awesome if unfortunately highly unlikely.......

Just replace everything here with Metroid characters and enemies. 8D

Couple more for ya.

Captain Rainbow and Wario Land/World.

F-Zero could work. Just do it like Speed Racer. Complete with hilariously bad lip-synching.

It's not whether F-Zero is good Movie Material because it definitely is good for a movie.  It's if Nintendo would be willing to make a F-Zero movie that makes it highly unlikely.

I'm liking that idea. 8D

I'd really like to see a live-action Metroid or Zelda movie someday.

Captain Rainbow was a commercial failure.

No way in hell they'd make a series, let alone a movie.

It's a Wii game that was only released in Japan.

Jeez I thought it was some kind of obscure NES thing.  Guess I should read up on it.
