Mario Movie Sequel

We start off with some exciting news from the world of animated movies: Chris Pratt, known for his voice role as Mario in the highly-acclaimed 'Super Mario Bros: The Movie,' recently confirmed in an interview with ET Online that a sequel is indeed in the works.

However, Pratt, the beloved voice behind the character Mario, revealed in the interview that the much-anticipated sequel is currently on hold due to the ongoing writers' strike, which has put a temporary halt to many productions across Hollywood. The strike, which seeks to address fundamental issues such as fair wages, creative rights, and improved working conditions, has left millions of fans on edge as they wait to see their favourite characters return to the big screen. Despite this, Pratt expressed his excitement for the sequel and assured fans that the wait would be worth it. So, the question now is, are you ready to dive back into the Mushroom Kingdom once the strike ends?
