Thanks to the Internet, the 1993 cult classic Super Mario Bros. film has now received a restored version with an extra 20 minutes of deleted scenes.

The project was spearheaded by The Movie Archive, which mostly dug into the VHS release of the ’90s picture. Unfortunately, many of the scenes were of terrible quality, and so the team employed the help of editor and artist Garrett Gilchrist — whose previous works include restoring various Muppet projects and The Thief and the Cobbler — to restore the footage into viewable quality.

More than just a simple restoration, however, The Movie Archive also discovered a number of never-before-seen deleted scenes, which have now all been added to the film in sequence, bringing its run time from 104 minutes to 125 minutes. According to the film’s description, some of these deleted scenes include King Koopa killing a technician by “de-evolving him into slime,” Iggy and Spike rapping at the Boom Boom Bar about the overthrow of King Koopa, and more sequences featuring Lena, Daniella and the Brooklyn Girls.

And if that’s not enough, the team also created a YouTube commentary video on the entire production and restoration process of the extended Super Mario Bros. cut which you can view above. As for those interested in checking out the full restored film you can head over to Archive.org.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Chris Hemsworth has offered fans a look at Taika Waititi and himself on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder.
