"Mary O. and Yamamura: The Movie is an upcoming live-action film based loosely on the game Super Mario Maker and especially the online Super Mario Maker: Crash Course comic series starring Mary O. and Yamamura on said game's official website. The movie was first mentioned by Yamamura at the end of episode 7 of said comics, but was originally believed by fans to be a one-off joke and not an actual upcoming film, especially since Mary O. immediately denies the existence of such a movie; however, in April 2018, Mary O. and Yamamura was confirmed to be an actual movie when Nintendo released an official teaser trailer on their YouTube channel. The film is scheduled to be released in September 2018."
"Nothing is known about the plot thus far - or indeed, if it is possible for such a movie to have a plot - but it is confirmed that Mary O. will be played by Irish singer-songwriter Enya Brennan, and"

"Mary O. will be played by Irish singer-songwriter Enya"
Whuh-- Buh-- Juh-- Zuh-- Gqxuh--
DID I READ ANY OF THAT RIGHT?!
There's going to be a movie with MARY O. in it?!?
Played by ENYA?!?! :D :D :D
I'm fanboying so much right now that I'm fanGIRLing!... yeah okay, I guess that makes no sense whatsoever, but oh well. :P
Wait... how can this movie even exist?? I thought Nintendo and Illumination were already working on an animated Mario movie – is Nintendo working on the animated movie AND Mary O. & Yamamura at the same time for some reason? And as much as I like the Super Mario Maker Crash Course comics, the fact remains that it's just an eight-episode-long tutorial for making good Super Mario Maker levels - how can ANYONE possibly adapt it into a full-length movie?? And just how many bets did Enya lose to end up having to play the guide to a video game manual??
...Okay, why am I looking a gift unicorn in the esophagus? MARY O., the most underrated fictional character I know of, is going to be in a MOVIE. Played by ENYA. This is the best thing that has happened to me this decade. :D
And yes, I KNOW, I KNOW, people are upset that they didn't get a Japanese actress for Mary O., and I respect their opinions. But come on... Enya music notwithstanding, I never thought my ♯1 celebrity crush OR my ♯1 fictional character crush would be in a movie whatsoever!! Now the former is going to be PLAYING the latter??
You'll probably all hate me for this (and I know I say that a lot, but I'm even more sure of it this time...), but sorry, I personally am NOT going to miss out on this movie!!
To me, this is going to be the best movie EVER!
...well, unless there turns out to be a catch to it, like maybe a certain YouTuber who makes up theories about video games that a lot of his fans take too seriously and blindly accept as fact is also in this movie or something. But that would never happen!
EDIT: Guess who they picked to do the voice of Yamamura. :(
Why didn't I see that in the article the first time? How did I manage to copy and paste the entire remainder of that sentence without noticing that it ends with "Yamamura will be voiced by Matthew Patrick of the YouTube channel Game Theory"?!
Enya being in a movie as Mary O. is still enough that I'll watch it, but WHY does MatPat have to also be in it? :(
