Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima told The Asahi Shimbun newspaper in Japan that the company was looking into producing its own films for the first time instead of just licensing out the characters. Kmishima also said that they weren’t looking into live-action films at this time.
It’s no secret Nintendo is scarred from the Super Mario film after all these years so no plans for live-action isn’t a shock, however I hope they don’t decide to make a Zelda or Metroid animation movie given the technology out there today. Nintendo recently sold it’s 45% stake in the Seattle Mariners so the move to producing its own films is looking to be financially motivated.
