Will There Be a Star Fox Movie?

If you are a fan of the Star Fox franchise, you may be wondering if there will be a Star Fox movie in the future. The answer is not clear-cut, but there have been some developments that suggest it could happen.

History of Star Fox

Star Fox is a video game series that was first created by Nintendo in 1993. The series follows the adventures of Fox McCloud and his team as they battle against various enemies in outer space. The franchise has since expanded into comics, manga, and an animated television series.

The Possibility of a Star Fox Movie

With the success of other video game adaptations such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Detective Pikachu, it’s no surprise that fans are hopeful for a Star Fox movie. In fact, rumors about a potential movie have been circulating for years.

One major development came in 2016 when Ubisoft Motion Pictures announced that they were partnering with 20th Century Fox to create a film based on the Starlink: Battle for Atlas video game. While this wasn’t specifically a Star Fox movie, it did feature characters from the franchise and was seen as a step towards getting an actual Star Fox film made.

What We Know So Far

As of now, there hasn’t been any official announcement about a Star Fox movie. However, there have been some hints from those involved with the franchise that suggest it could be in the works.

In an interview with IGN in 2018, Shigeru Miyamoto (creator of the Star Fox series) stated that he was open to the idea of a movie adaptation but wanted to make sure it was done right. He also mentioned that he had already received offers from Hollywood studios but hadn’t found one that he felt understood the franchise well enough.

In addition, there have been reports that Dylan Clark (producer of War for the Planet of the Apes) has been in talks with Nintendo about a potential Star Fox movie. However, nothing has been confirmed by either party.


While there isn’t any concrete evidence that a Star Fox movie is currently in production, there have been some promising signs that suggest it could happen in the future. With the success of other video game adaptations and the continued popularity of the franchise, it seems like only a matter of time before we see Fox McCloud and his team on the big screen.
