The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been exclusively on NBC Universal’s streaming service Peacock for a bit now, but soon it will come to Netflix—a streaming platform people actually use—just in time for the holidays.

Released to mixed reviews in April, The Super Mario Bros. Movie has gone on to become one of the biggest films of the year. It made over $1.3 billion at the box office. While the movie felt like it was “designed in a lab”, it wasn’t all bad! For example, it did bring us Jack Black as Bowser.

But yeah, Nintendo’s hit film is finally leaping to a platform that hundreds of millions of people have next month and I imagine that will lead to a large influx of new viewers and Mario movie takes in the coming weeks. Get ready everyone.

And of course, if you want to just rent or own the film, that’s an option too. The Mario Movie hit digital stores like iTunes and Vudu back in May of this year. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to listen to “Peaches” again.
