Animated movies have a unique appeal that captivates our attention and transports us to a different world. What grabs our attention are the vivid colors, the offbeat personalities of the characters, and the creative storylines. Or it could be due to the fact that animated movies usually appeal to viewers of all ages, making them the perfect option for movie nights with a date or with the whole family. This is because animated movies can strike the perfect balance between comedic and dramatic elements, resulting in both pleasant and emotionally moving works.
Illumination Studios is a true expert when it comes to producing animated movies that can nail each and every note perfectly. It doesn’t matter if it’s the lovable and hilarious minions of “Despicable Me” or the wacky animal characters of “Sing,” the films of Illumination have a way of bringing out the childlike delight that’s dormant within all of us. In addition, animated movies are highly liked by older and younger people. The Super Mario Bros. Movie, a film released not too long ago and produced by Illumination, expands on the well-known Mushroom Kingdom and the people who live there by adding new ideas and characters that are sure to please fans. There are many allusions and references to past games, from classical music to humorous in-game dialogue, allowing adults to enjoy and share the game with their children. For those who grew up playing the old games, there are many allusions and references to earlier games.

This animated comedic adventure will likely be another big success for the production firm. Some themes it explores include being brave when confronting fears and the importance of family.
