    A recent leak has hinted at the potential appearance of a key “Super Mario Galaxy” character in the upcoming “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”

    On Sunday, Twitter user and McDonald’s employee @kikaim reportedly leaked a flier featuring Super Mario Bros. Happy Meal toys. These toys will be made available on or before the release date of “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” according to reports.

    The flier features Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Donkey Kong, Bowser and two versions of Mario.

    Given that the flier also features a blue Luma toy, fans are now speculating that the character Rosalina will appear in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”

    Rosalina is known as the adopted mother of the Lumas. These star-like creatures made their first appearance in Nintendo’s 2007 platform game “Super Mario Galaxy.” 

    This is not the first time a Super Mario Bros. movie leak has gone viral. Last month, new posters of the film were allegedly shared ahead of its official trailer reveal.


    Nintendo has yet to confirm whether Rosalina will appear in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” next year.
