Entertainment currently exists as a new plane for one production to branch into a full-on franchise. So far, Sonic the Hedgehog has proven to be the case with its second film already hitting theater this week. Additionally, the future looks bright for the series as actor James Marsden already signed a multi-film agreement to work on more for a greater established universe later on.

From Paramount itself, the firm announced a third movie is already in production. Atop of that Knuckles the Echidna is also receiving a television series to air exclusively on Paramount+ next year. As for other potential releases, Giant Freaking Robot – an outlet that accurately reported on the Knuckles show – now states a Tails movie is in the pipeline too.

Other hopes are to branch to other franchises later on. When pressed by Comicbook.com, Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler does shares he would be completely invested in working on a Super Smash Bros. movie. Getting Mario and Sonic in the ring, I mean everyone would be kinda dying for that, right? That’s just classic.”

He added, “Nothing would make me happier than to just throw all the characters into a battle royale and do a big Smash Bros. thing. That would probably require some work from the lawyers before that could happen.” As of writing, the only Nintendo property underway for the theater is Super Mario planned to release this year.

So for the chances of a full-length film is left in obscurity regarding Super Smash Bros. The first Nintendo movie has yet to release let alone an established plan for Super Smash Bros. to hit the box office later on is not certain currently. The other question would be the choice of production: Paramount that worked on Sonic the Hedgehog or Illumination responsible Super Mario?

While all is conjecture, Super Mario movie voice actor for Luigi Charlie Day did express interest to tackle a Luigi’s Mansion film. However, there is no concrete evidence encouraging the production to already be underway as of writing. You can read the full report by heading here.
