The SuperMarioLogan Movie!
The SuperMarioLogan Movie! was a planned film based on the popular YouTube channel, SuperMarioLogan. No release dates were given, and it's currently on. A teaser trailer to the unreleased film was released on July 9th, 2017.
The plot was confirmed by Zeke, the voice actor for Mama Luigi in a live stream with SML reviewer "dabhdude". Zeke revealed half of the plot for the film: It starts off with Mario and company, Jeffy then hears the ice cream truck. The ice cream truck was driven by Screwball The Clown and The Loan Dolphin, and were hired by Jeffy's mom "Nancy" who escaped prison. The plan was to kidnap Jeffy, but they instead kidnap Mario. Jeffy goes back to the SML house and tells everyone Mario got kidnapped, and Chef Pee Pee was the only one who sees the problem, but everyone goes on like "who cares?". Days past, the entire house is in chaos because Mario is gone. Bowser gets a letter from Mr. Goodman that the power will be cut if it doesn't get paid. Chef Pee Pee tells Bowser that Mario got kidnapped, then Bowser says he knows someone who can track Mario down, but is dead. Then Bowser then hears his son, Bowser Junior and his friends talking about a scientist that can bring people to life. Bowser asks where the scientist is and brings all of Mama Luigi's body parts with him, then Mama Luigi is brought back to life. Mama Luigi then tracks down Nancy's headquarters where Mario was taken. Mama Luigi, Bowser, Chef Pee Pee then breaks into Jeffy's mom headquarters and a fight breaks out and Mario is saved. The rest of the plot remains unknown.

Why It Was Cancelled
- There is a bit of strong language.
- Overall, the draft is darker than the final cut and it had on-screen deaths, and was definitely going for a PG-13 or an R rating.
- Good Morning America did a segment on SML and stated that YouTube is not doing enough to prevent inappropriate family-oriented content like SML from being viewed by kids, even though SML is not actually aimed at kids but rather has mostly a teen and adult audience and has a large pre-teen following. In interviews, kids admitted they were aware the videos were inappropriate. Most parents stated that the channel should be eliminated from YouTube due to kids watching inappropriate content, despite SML not being kid-friendly. Later, the segment was uploaded separately to GMA's YouTube channel. Logan's fans immediately hated the video currently holding a roughly 1-to-10 like-to-dislike ratio, and defended him in the comments.
- Some of the cast still hate each other today and are barely performing on screen together. (Lovell Stanton with Elaina Keyes and Anthony Miller; and Chilly Jimenez with Keyes)
- Series creator, Logan Thirtyacre keeps getting demonetized on YouTube.
- Budget problems during the production.
- The film would be aged badly due to adding new characters and changing the main characters (Mario, Bowser, Bowser Junior, Cody and Joseph.) From plushies to human version puppets while other characters (Black Yoshi, Shrek, Woody, etc.) haven’t upgraded into puppets yet.
- Not only the Adpocalypse affected the film, but also affected by Federal Trade Commission‘s Children‘s Online Privacy Protection Act, which was created in 1998 and effected in 2000. Due to YouTube violating the law, They were sued for $170 million from FTC. On November 12th 2019, the new policy was added to YouTube Creator Studio, if a channel chooses an option of the channel’s demographic for children, YouTube would remove features such as comments, notification of a new video, being recommended, being searchable, community tab, stories, info card, end title, and personalized ads. That YouTube cut to 90% loss revenue, making less money to support the film’s budget. If the channel choose the option of the channel’s demographic not for children, but rather target for adult and teenage audience but incorrectly that wasn’t made for children, YouTube would've paid a fine of $42,530 per video. This policy would effect by January 1st 2020. Logan promised that the film would released in 2019, but it’s unlikely will released due to the new changes to YouTube.
- According to Chilly’s Tweet, Logan was “too scared” quote on quote, to announce the film’s cancellation, other wise, the fans would be upset, and harassed him if he did. Instead, they decided that fans would forget about the film’s existence.
- As of November 2020, the SML crew were tested positive for COVID-19. However, they will still film together since they all have the virus. But one of the casts Pablo tested negative. So he won't come back until the rest of the cast tests negative.
- Zeke doesn't want to film with Logan anymore because he promised Zeke a job to work with the SML crew and later on not responding back about the Job confirmation which almost caused Zeke to lose his Current job.
- Logan had told his crew to lie to the fans that ask "Where is the SML Movie?" and only make jokes about the film to mock the fans who desperate wanted to see the movie for nearly 4 years.
- When a fan asks "Where is the SML Movie?" Logan never responds and ignores it especially in Q&A's.
- On February 11th, 2021 Logan has gotten a cease and desist letter from Nintendo about the use of the Mario characters, meaning he is no longer allowed to use the Nintendo plushies in videos. Logan stated that the human puppets will be used from now on.
- The film hasn't been released as of now.
