HD RELEASE: The death of a hero forces the Mushroom Kingdom to get revenge.

This is a special HD release of Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom. Disc 1 includes both the original Parts 1 and 2 combined into one epic movie! Disc 2 next week(ish)

Created by the late Randy Solem, Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom may very well be one of the most epic Mario sprite movies to ever hit the web. Infact at one point this was so popular that G4's Attack of the Show brought him to the studio for a T.V interview.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of the first movies I saw here one newgrounds, and still one of the best. I'm sad to learn that the man who created this masterpiece died :/

Ten years later, and this STILL makes me cry. At a sprite movie. Not an easy feat, that.

Never knew the guy personally, but Randy definitely had a talent, and a big effect on sprite animation, the Newgrounds community in general, from the heartfelt comments I'm reading. He will be missed.
