Let’s take a look at a dark and gritty reboot of Super Mario Bros. Why? Well, cause it’s a Saturday and the screenwriter behind Snow White and The Huntsman, Evan Daugherty, says we should. Daugherty wrote and directed four shorts called “Four Players” and below are all the segments. The Four Players are: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toadsool. Check them out below!

Mario Stars in ‘The Fixer’

Luigi is ‘The Addict’

Peach is ‘The Star’

Toadstool is ‘The Soldier’

Daugherty had this to say about the project:

“Making these short films gave me a chance to really ‘do my own thing,’ while having a little fun treating one of my favorite video game properties with a darker vibe,” said Daugherty.  “I had been kicking around the idea for years before I was even working in the industry, so to finally be able to share these films with fans on Polaris is a very exciting thing.”

You can check out more great stuff on the Polaris YouTube page.

Not really sure where Daugherty came up with these, but they’re extremely unique and have some pretty great production value. Hope you enjoyed!
