We know the core voice cast, but pretty much everything else about the forthcoming Super Mario movie is very much shrouded in secrecy, with very little known about the plot, setting or what it will actually look like.
However, we do know that it will be accompanied by a range of toys created by Jakks Pacific. Two toys have been confirmed by Amazon Canada – a 5-inch Toad figure and a ‘Mini-World’ van playset – but neither listing has any imagery or other details.
The fact that a Toad figure is being produced isn’t all that shocking, but the Mini-Van World Playset hints at something quite unique; while Mario is no stranger to a kart, he hasn’t been seen in a van in the mainline Super Mario games.
In fact, the last time we spotted him in a van, it was in the 1993 live-action Super Mario Movie. Gulp.
