The 1986 Super Mario Bros. anime has been restored in 4K

The Super Mario Bros. anime The Grand Mission to Rescue Princess Peach is now available to stream or download in 4k for the first time.

A new restoration of the classic 1986 Super Mario Bros. anime is now available on YouTube, with a download from the Internet Archive.

“This is from a 16mm reduction print that was probably used for small, local screenings on the day of its release,” reads the video description. “It’s probably one of, if not THE only, surviving prints in the world, and fellow fan Carnivol was able to get his hands on it back in 2016.”

Although the film has been available online for years, this is the best version yet. This new restoration is clean, color corrected and re-captioned for the best possible experience.

“We were able to get it super clean (although some scratches couldn’t be completely removed),” the team explained. They spent months removing dirt, dust and scratches. “Thousands of individual pieces of debris were manually removed for this restoration.”

Also, the audio was re-recorded using VHS as the source.

“The VHS was originally released with 2-channel Dolby Surround, which is preserved here in the audio recording,” says Femboy Films. “This is the closest representation of how the film would have sounded in theaters since it was released there in 4-channel Dolby Stereo.”

There’s even a brand new scan of the film’s original art books.

Mario Movie – The previous cast

The Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach is a 1986 animated comedy adventure loosely based on the events of Super Mario Bros.

After escaping the world of video games and finding herself in Mario’s world, Princess Peach seeks refuge from the famous plumbers. However, King Koopa (aka Bowser) is hot on her heels – desperately dragging her back to the Mushroom Kingdom. The Mario Bros – now working in a grocery store for some reason – are lured to the kingdom by Dumpling Dog (!?!) to rescue the princess and save the day.

And it’s about as crazy as it sounds. The film was written by Hideo Takayashiki and directed by Masami Hata.

While it’s unlikely we’ll get a remaster of this particular film, a record number of video game adaptations are currently in the works. The upcoming Mario movie will star Chris Pratt as the voice of Mario alongside Jack Black as Bowser.
