The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been out in cinemas for a few weeks now and it's fair to say that it is doing well. Very well. Just one week after its world premiere, the film became the highest-grossing video game movie of all time, it shot to the top of the biggest films of 2023 and might just be on track to become one of the highest-grossing films of all time. In short, ka-ching!

With this much talk spreading through the pipes, many are starting to wonder when they will be able to catch up with Mario's animated feature debut from the comfort of their own home. Right now, our options are limited to pre-ordering the film on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD, but as with many movies, the film will be coming to streaming at some point in the future.

In this guide, we have broken down everything you need to know about the Mario Movie's streaming debut, from the services on which it is likely to appear to when it may well drop, as well as when to expect a home and VOD release.

How To Watch The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Where Can I Watch The Mario Movie?

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is currently playing in most cinemas around the world, and we anticipate it staying there for a good few weeks as it continues to generate a huge number of ticket sales.

For now, this is your only option, though there will be more ways to watch in the coming months...

Is The Mario Movie On Streaming Services?

The official answer is no, not yet. While we do not have an official date for when the Mario Movie will be heading to streaming services, we can make some informed predictions based on how Illumination and Universal Pictures have scheduled their streaming releases in the past.


We know that in the US, The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be heading to Peacock, as is the case for all Universal Pictures (of which Illumination is a subsidiary) releases. The streaming deal (via The Verge) states that any Universal project will be added to the service no later than four months after the film's theatrical release date — meaning that the Mario Movie will likely arrive on Peacock in early August at the latest.

This being said, the studio's previous films have regularly appeared on the streaming service roughly seven weeks after their theatrical premiere, which might put Mario's Peacock arrival around the end of May — though this is unlikely given the film's success at the box office so far.

We can also expect that the film will come to Netflix in the US after its initial four-month run on Peacock thanks to an agreement between the streaming giant and Universal from 2021.


As for the UK, things aren't quite as clear. Peacock is available for those with a Sky and NOW TV subscription, so this will probably be the best method to stream the film straight out of the gate. However, regional libraries do differ, so there is no guarantee that the film will arrive on the service in the UK as quickly as it does across the pond.

The same goes for other streaming services, as well. Netflix libraries vary by country, so if the Super Mario Bros. Movie makes it over to Netflix in the US, that may not necessarily happen in the UK.

DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K

For those after a physical copy of the film, pre-orders are now available for the 4K, Blu-ray and standard DVD editions. While there is no official release date attached to these boxed editions for the time being, a leak in March suggested that physical versions of the film will be available from the way from 6th June 2023. Though there are rumours that suggest that the physical release will be delayed to 1st July.

We will be keeping this guide up to date over the coming months as we get more details on when the Mario Movie arrives on streaming services
