When will The Super Mario Bros. Movie come to streaming services?
If you're waiting for Mario's big adventure to hit streaming services, here's what you need to know
Update: The Super Mario Bros. Movie is now available to stream on Peacock. We expected the animated film would arrive in August and that’s proven to be the case. If you’re waiting for The Super Mario Bros. Movie to come to Netflix, you’ll have to wait until December.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been a monumental success, pulling in millions at the box office and breaking numerous records along the way. It’s the highest-grossing video game movie of all time and has now surpassed $1 billion at the box office globally.
But if you haven’t seen the animated film, or simply want to watch it again to spot every easter egg you can find, you may be wondering when The Super Mario Bros. Movie is coming to streaming services.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie came to Peacock on August 4, and it’s also available to buy or rent digitally or on DVD and Blu-ray. If you still haven’t seen Mario on the big screen, our Super Mario movie review from our very owncompared the picture and sound experience in 3D, 4DX, IMAX and Dolby.
The Mario movie made its debut in cinemas on April 5 and hung around longer than most films due to its popularity.
Where can I stream The Super Mario Bros. Movie?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is now available to stream on Peacock (available on Sky and NOW TV in the UK). This isn’t a huge surprise considering that all Universal Pictures (of which Illumination is a subsidiary) eventually release on Peacock.
According to The Verge, a streaming deal ensures that any Universal Pictures project must be added to Peacock no later than four months after a film’s theatrical release. As The Super Mario Bros. Movie released on April 5, we predicted it should hit Peacock around August – and that’s exactly what happened as the film dropped on August 3.
Some of Universal Pictures’ films have made their way to Peacock seven weeks after their theatrical release, but it was unlikely Mario would jump onto streaming services a little quicker than expected due to the movie’s incredible box office success.
If you’re a Netflix subscriber, there’s a good chance The Super Mario Bros. Movie could also come to the world’s most popular streaming service. Peacock has had an agreement with the streaming giant since 2021 to put Universal Pictures’ films on Netflix four months after they’ve been on Peacock. We can expect to see the Mario movie on Netflix in December, then.
When will The Super Mario Bros. Movie be available on DVD and Blu-ray?
You can now purchase it on 4K Blu-ray and DVD. It’s available from retailers including Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart.
You can also rent or buy The Super Mario Bros. Movie digitally for $29.99 from the usual platforms like iTunes, the Microsoft Store, and Amazon Video.
