The Venedicci Comet is headed straight toward Earth. Apocalyptics predict that it will strike, causing total annihilation; while most scientists speculate it will be a near-miss and Earthlings will behold history’s most awe-inspiring celestial event. Either way, Mario is prepared. With a chorus of rubber ducks and soaring songs about the theory of relativity, Mario and the Comet is a musical adventure-comedy about how absence can be like an earth-shattering comet; but when faced together as a family, it can become a thing of beauty— a celebration of life and love.
