According to Nintendo of America’s official Twitter account, the Super Mario Bros Movie Nintendo Direct is scheduled for 1:05 Pacific Time (4:05 ET) on October 6, 2022. Like other Nintendo Direct broadcasts, it’ll be viewable on YouTube, accessed via this link. The timing is telling: 1:05 PM Pacific Time is exactly five minutes after the New York Comic Con reveal, which is set for 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

The tweet announcing the Direct also featured the film’s first poster illustration, visible below.

The poster shows Mario from behind, being led by Toad and surrounded by various other unnamed Mushroom Kingdom residents. This rendition of the Mushroom Kingdom is a bit different from the ones seen in the games. In the Super Mario Bros. Movie, it’s a big, multi-layered city laid out over a cluster of hills and with different areas connected by multi-colored warp pipes. Shops sell Cheep Cheeps, as well as game-like artifacts such as Yoshi eggs, Note Blocks, and P Switches, too.

The film is being produced by Illumination, which produced Despicable Me, Minions, Sing, and The Secret Life of Pets, among others. It’s being directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!), with voice roles for Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Seth Rogen, Keegan-Michael Key, and Charles Martinet.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie Nintendo Direct broadcast is scheduled for October 6, 2022, at 1:05 PM Pacific time. The film premieres on April 7, 2023.
