Super Mario Bros.: Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach!
Super Mario Bros.: Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach! (or Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! if you're some sort of Italian speaking person) is a very, very strange anime movie based off the Super Mario Bros. series. At the time it was made, the series was still relatively new, so there are a lot of things in the movie that might not make much sense to Mario fans today, such as the Mushroom Kingdom depicted in it, Luigi's strange coloring, that blue dog thing, and many others.
Warning: Spoilers ahead. But you probably do not care anyway.
In the film, Mario and Luigi are the owners of a grocery store. One night, Mario was engrossed in his Famicom game. Suddenly, the picture goes out and Princess Peach appears on the TV screen crying for help from the enemies attacking her and jumps out of the TV. Mario falls in love with her and vows to protect her. Soon after, Bowser appears on the TV screen and starts to come out of the TV. He grabs Princess Peach and takes her into the TV. Mario then discovers a small brooch that Peach left on the floor.
The next day, the brooch that Peach dropped becomes a matter of concern for Mario. Luigi immediately notices the brooch and regards it as the "Visionary Jewel from the Country of Treasure". Soon, Kibidango, a small dog-like being, wanders into the store and notices that Mario has Peach's brooch. He takes it away from Mario, enraging him, thus beginning his (and Luigi's) chase with Kibidango into the Mushroom Kingdom.
When the Mario brothers arrive at the kingdom, a large Mushroom Sennin tells them that Bowser has taken over the kingdom and is turning the helpless citizens into blocks and that on Friday the 13th, Bowser will marry Peach. By finding the three powers, the mushroom of truth, the flower of love, and the yellow star of invincibility, the Mario Brothers will be able to defeat Bowser and save Princess Peach.
Throughout the many perilous obstacles, Mario finally finds all the three powers by Friday the 13th. When night arises, the wedding of Bowser and Peach begins to take place. Mario arrives and beats up Bowser enlisting the help of the three powers, and Bowser's magic is destroyed, bringing back the Mushroom Kingdom that was before he came along. Mario gives Peach's brooch back to her, which reveals Kibidango's true identity, Prince Haru of the Flower Kingdom, who says that Koopa transformed him into a dog (Kibidango). He then tells them he is going to marry Princess Peach. After the credits, Bowser and his minions have reformed, and are seen happily working for the grocery.
