James Farr has just written, directed, animated and released a fan film mash-up that has the first Ghostbusters movie being portrayed by characters from the Super Mario Bros. Franchise. Mario and Luigi will be playing the role of Ghostbusters (not a direct translation, as there’s only 2 of them instead of 3) in order to save Princess Peach from the evil Rozer.
The animated short is easily one of the better animated fan shorts out there, and features a ton of guest appearances and nods along the way, including Kirby as the Stay Puft Marshmallow monster. There’s also a nod to the crappy Ghostbusters NES game.
The fan short contains a lot of clever uses of characters from the Mario franchise, particularly the “…but the Princess is in another castle” bit, which would be all sorts of scary in a different context. Anyways, enough talk. Watch the video below:
