When the movie Super Mario Bros. is it available for streaming?
The Mario movie is officially here, with more toads and classic game catchphrases than you can shake a stick at.
The film stars Chris Pratt as the voice of our Italian-American hero, Mario, who is sucked into the Mushroom Kingdom. He must team up with Princess Peach to rescue her brother Luigi from the clutches of the evil Lord Bowser.
Many outlets are predicting that the Mario movie will be a smash hit in theaters because it’s such a popular gaming franchise and has little competition with other kids’ movies. However, when will it be available to watch at home?
Here’s what we know so far. You can also check out our Mario movie post-credits guide.
When will the Mario movie be available to stream?
Illumination/Nintendo have not confirmed when the Mario movie will be available for streaming. That said, the animation studio’s previous films such as Minions: The Rise of Gru took around three months after hitting theaters to arrive on the streaming service, Peacock.
If we looked at a similar period for Mario, we might expect to see it available for streaming around June or July of this year.
We’d expect it to come to Peacock, which is a US-exclusive standalone streaming service – account fees start from $4.99 per month. UK viewers can access some content there, but only through Now. However, we don’t yet know if Sky has the broadcast rights to the film.
Additionally, Universal has a deal with Netflix that allows movies to arrive at least four months after they land on Peacock. So if you only subscribe to Netflix and don’t want to sign up for another service, you’ll have to wait until around fall 2023 for the Mario movie to eventually arrive.

When will the Mario movie be available on VOD?
Again, no official VOD release date has been set, but most movies usually release on digital download before landing on a streaming service.
With that in mind, we expect The Mario Movie to hit VOD around May/June this year – but that will depend on how well it does at the box office.
When will the Mario movie be available on DVD/Blu-ray?
It’s hard to determine when the physical release of the Mario movie will be without knowing the streaming and VOD release dates. If we had to estimate, we’d expect it to be this summer – but we’ll update this article when we know more.
