Funny thing is, the old Mario movie was originally meant to BE this sort of loyal adaptation.I still think we will most likely get a Mario CGI movie sometime... Wario hopefully as a supporting cast. Anything that shows faith to it's source material is still much better than the old SMB movie, IMO.
((And again, Charels Martinet or Bust. :U))
Then... they changed directors and stuff and it all went downhill...
