Pretty sure at some point copyright can’t be renewed.
Although In a video I saw about Mickey mouse’s copyright As that is also pretty close to expiring They can keep him trademarked as long as they want
IMO they’re probably going to take DreamWorks/Universal’s route and use a different version of Mickey Mouse (i.e. the more modern one that we’ve seen since the ‘40s) for “official” merchandise while enforcing its trademark claim. That’s how Universal manages to protect Felix the Cat despite that character being PD for years; official merchandise uses the iteration from the ’50s TV show (which he why he almost always has that “magic bag of tricks” with him).
To everyone who said to wait until we heard more to judge Chris Pratt as Mario, he still sucks. There’s once at the very end of the trailer where he kinda sounds right, and I’m not convinced it’s not a stock sound effect.
The rest was cool.
Kinda of wild how Universal went from publishing Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games to releasing a movie based off the biggest video game franchise in the world that could very well become the biggest-grossing video game movie of all time.
