A few years ago Nintendo announced they would make their own CGI movies. I wonder what happened to those plans.

I was thinking maybe Pixar and Disney should get the rights from Nintendo to make a feature length CGI animated movie based on the Super Mario Bros. games, it can erase the memories of the original movie and could make an interesting CGI animated franchise.
I'd love to see it happen, but I know it won't...
A CGI Super Mario Bros. movie sounds like a good idea to me, although I personally don't care which studio produces it as long as it doesn't blow as hard as that crappy live action movie.
I would rather see a Star Fox Adventures CGI movie.
That said, a Pixar movie about video games (in the same way as Tron - not based on a franchise) might have potential...

CGI movies based on video games, sure why not. I don't think that they should be done by Pixar though.

I'd prefer a series of Sonic films by DreamWorks. Too bad I'm not a script writer, because I have a good story in mind.
This is a completely pointless thread. One person's random "what-if" fantasy isn't worth a topic of its own. There's no sign that such a thing could ever possibly happen.

No offense, but that sounds like a really stupid idea. I really don't see how that could possibly turn out well.

If any studio were to develop movies based on video game franchises, I'd imagine it would be Imagi, who made the recent TMNT movie. They did TMNT and I heard somewhere that they'll be doing a Battle of the Planets movie next. So, it seems that they're interested in taking on outside properties and they're interested in doing action/adventure oriented projects. Just the impression I get, though.
Saturday Morning is not just part of the week. It's a state of mind.
This reminds me of that "Mushroom Kingdom Hearts" joke game EGM mentioned for April Fools day a couple of months back. In other words, something that would only get into the rumor/never going to happen pretty much ever catergory. I mean I think it would be a pretty interesting idea to see Pixar animation in a feature length film for Mario or other video game characters but you know it's never going to happen. Pixar is making enough money as it is (despite Ratouille not being the finical success of some of the other Pixar movies's opening weekends) to not need Nintendo's license to make a game. And Nintendo certainly dosen't need licensing from Disney/Pixar for anything. I think a more logical thing would be say a Pixar team based story on a Square Enix project with the whole Kingdom hearts collab. I mean a Final Fantasy PIxar movie would certianly be better then Spirits Within and at least the companies have a record of working for each other so you know it's at least more feesable.
Instead of just using this new signature to celebrate a thousand more post, let me list of all the great things you can expect of me on this board for 2012:

Wouldn't mind seeing Mario. Or Sonic. The only trouble is, it seems like you'd do best to stay as close as possible to the old games, but how much plot can you get from there?

(Well, it was worth a go.)
I'd prefer an animated movie based on the Legend of Zelda, done by Timbox Productions and directed by Joe Cracker.
It'd be the film of the century, you guys.
