A new live-action, short film series, The Four Players, has been released online. Filmmaker, Evan Daugherty, has created a quite unique look at four characters from the Super Mario Bros. franchise, portraying each in a different light with their own backstories. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Toad all make appearances in the series. While the films may be very well done and present a darker and grittier touch, you can’t help but feel a sense of satire within the series. Irrespective of how serious Daugherty takes this series, it’s still a much better story and direction than the actual, live-action film from the 90s we had to endure.
