Cool Videos: CG Legend of Zelda Movie Pitch

Aug. 5, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Over the years there's been quite a few video game to movie adaptations. But for all of those, why no love for Legend of Zelda? Well, Nintendo has yet to see anything they like. What would a Zelda movie look like? Would it be live-action or animated? What would be better?

This movie pitch from 2007 might give us an idea.

Imagi Animation Studios (TMNT) put this one together hoping that they could get a CG Zelda movie rolling. Unfortunately it didn't do the trick. While it does look pretty neat, Gannondorf is a little, well, different. Don't expect to hear any voice acting either. This thing is pretty cut and dry. I think I'm more in the camp of those who want to see an animated flick but perhaps a live action version could work. I would just be scared that it would be THE LAST AIRBENDER bad. Sorry to bring up those terrible thoughts but I'm just looking out for the cherish gaming property.

Check it out below and weigh-in with your thoughts.

I saw this earlier on IGN and thought it looked terrible. The animation style is all wrong in my opinion. While a Zelda movie would be epic, I think it would be best left alone.

I am a huge Zelda fan. In fact, I have a triforce tattoo. And as a major fan, I think this pitch reel offends me. I mean, why the hell is Gannondorf some pretty boy? Zelda should be left alone.

Much like Half Life, a Zelda movie wouldn't work. The protagonists are designed to be mute, which is key for the blank persona of the characters; we project our own ideas of what Link/Gordon Freeman are like in our own way. Having a movie studio dictate to us what they would say ruins that motif.
