We finally got our first tease of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie and it seems that they have dropped a small nugget of information about what we can expect from the film before dropping the trailer at us. As it turns out, it seems that composer Brian Tyler has been hired to bring the movie’s musical landscape to life.
It also seems like Tyler is going to work closely with composer Koji Kondo to include many iconic songs from the original games. So, if you’ve been worried they’d move away from the soundtrack that made the games stand out, they’re definitely not just creating a new soundtrack ignoring the original songs that made the game’s as classic as they are.
It’s going to be interesting to see what Tyler brings to the table and how they’ll appraoch the concept. Mario’s soundtrack has evolved quite a bit over teh years with the Odyssey one standing out quite a bit. Of course, he coudl try to reeplicate elements from across the years but still try to give it a unique spin. For now, we’ll have to wait and see what direction they take it once we see more fro mthe film.
