If you’ve ever watched the 1986 Super Mario Bros. film The Great Rescue of Princess Peach! and wished it was available in more modern resolutions, you’re now in luck.

YouTube channel Carnivol has spent the past few years painstakingly remastering the cult classic, working from VHS copies in the beginning before moving onto 16mm theatrical versions. While currently still unfinished, the project to upscale the movie into 4K has already cost them upwards of $20,000 USD. To complete the full remastering process, Carnivol is hoping to pass over the raw files to someone else who can take them to the finish line.

As for those who are unfamiliar with the film, Super Mario Bros.: The Great Rescue of Princess Peach! was first released in 1986 in Japan. The movie follows Mario and Luigi as they journey through the Mushroom Kingdom in search of Princess Peach, who appealed to Mario for help by jumping out of a television before subsequently being kidnapped again by Bowser and King Koopa.

For those interested in the yet unfinished remaster of the film, you can check it out above.
