The biggest film of the year arrives home with all-new bonus features in THE SUPER MARIO BROS. MOVIE ‘POWER UP EDITION,’ now available to own on Digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The fun, family movie was in theaters this spring(see our review here) and we loved it! We are happy to partner with Universal and offer you a chance to win your own copy!
The movie tells the story of two Brooklyn plumbers who are brothers and best friends: Mario, the brave one with the “let’s-a go” attitude, and the perpetually anxious Luigi, who would prefer to go nowhere. We open with the Super Mario Brothers reckoning with their struggling plumbing business, and wind up in a whirlwind adventure through Mushroom Kingdom. Through their journey, we meet a cast of familiar, lovable characters, ultimately uniting to defeat the power-hungry villain, Bowser.
