Well…not really. It may not be Fan Film Friday yet, but this is a fan trailer that just needs to get seen. Those who have seen the Inglourious Plummers fan trailer are in store for something special, as the first trailer for Mario Kart: The Movie has popped up.
The obsession with the animated racing game began in 1992 with the release of Super Mario Kart on the Super NES system. Of the other sports Mario and his gang partook in, from golf to baseball, grand prix racing seemed to be the most popular. The game series ran through all of Nintendo’s systems including the Nintendo 64, Wii, and even the handheld systems.
The trailer shows the inner emotion of each of these races, and just what kind of a toll it took on our Italian-American hero. For fan films, the acting was pretty good, the story was quite well thought out, and there are even a few laugh-out-loud moments.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
