Mario and Luigi were two normal plumbers working in Toad Town, the capital of the Mushroom Kingdom. One day, Princess Peach, Mario's childhood friend and ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, is kidnapped by the evil warlord Bowser. Promising to save Peach, Mario and Luigi travel through fantastical realms, engaging in the adventure of a lifetime.



After the disastrous release of the Super Mario Bros. movie in 1993, Nintendo had lost interest in a Mario movie for several years. However, they began to reconsider after the positive response of Super Mario Galaxy in 2007. Nintendo sold movie rights to the Mario franchise to Warner Bros. Pictures in November 2008. In 2012, Zack Snyder was hired as director and Scott Lobdell was hired as screenwriter. At first, Warner wanted a live-action movie, but Snyder and Lobdell were able to convince them to make the movie in full CGI instead.
