(As it seems, I already did the Cosmic Mario Forest Race. Sorry, Rinsting.)
As you play through Super Mario Galaxy, you can visit the Library section of the Comet Observatory. There, you can read the backstory of Princess Rosalina--who she is, where she came from, and how she got to live with the Lumas on the Comet Observatory. It plays out very much like a picture book. It looks like one, and it reads a lot like one.
Some people say that it's pretty depressing, uncharacteristically so for a Mario game. I could definitely see where that's coming from, but I suspect Nintendo wanted to tell people to look ahead instead of being stuck in the past. Rosalina never gets to be with her family again, but she acquires a new family. I THINK that's the idea. (Don't ask how she found all these supplied needed for a house or why there's a huge pile of books encased in the comet's ice to make a fully stocked library. I don't know.)
If it ever goes by too fast for you, just pause the video.
