Grant Kirkhope, the composer for “DK Rap” in Donkey Kong 64, also commented on it. He noted on his official Twitter account, “If you’d told me in ‘97, when I wrote the worst rap track in the history of rap tracks, that it would go on to be in a Mario Bros movie I’d would’ve burst with excitement!”
That isn’t the only thing confirmed for the film. Chris Pratt, in an interview with CBR, mentioned there will be a post-credits scene. However, he didn’t go into what it will show and only teased that it could suggest a potential follow-ip.
The Super Mario Bros Movie will launch in North America on April 5, 2023. It will launch in Japan on April 28, 2023.
