Zelda movie trailer?

04.01.2008
The legions of fans who played countless hours of ZELDA games on various Nintendo consoles have long been waiting to see those sprites and polygons turned to flesh and blood -- so they will undoubtedly be thrilled that a "top secret" live-action movie has been in the works!

IGN has an exclusive look at the trailer for the movie, which seems to have selected relative unknowns for the cast. The filmmakers have also given an appropriately "gamey" look and tone to the settings and FX.

The story follows young elf Link who undertakes a quest to recover the shattered Triforce and rescue the titular princess from Ganon, the "King of Evil". See it in motion below!

hmm...

It looks like Link is exploding out of the body of a casual business man, like a phoenix from the ashes. (it looks like he's wearing khaki pants).

There's an awful plot for you. Over-aged video game nerd becomes his dream. Pack it and wrap it boys.

Yeah, the first D&D movie sucked beyond the telling of it.

Well well

Well. I guess when it comes to producing April 1 hoaxes, it really DOES pay to be acquired by Fox.

It already looks better than Krull and "Dungeons and Dragons: the Movie" combined, and it's not even real. Maybe someday I can head to the drive in and catch a double feature, with this and Vinnie Chase as AquaMan™.

Of course, in the real Zelda movie, they'd have to cast a Link that looks less like a tranny.

I honestly think that would be the only way to approach the Zelda series and do it any amount of justice. Some of the costumes and make-up were a little cheesy but get the LOTR design crew on that aspect and you'd have a decent fantasy flick and a --dare I say it-- good video game movie. The look was perfect for it, and kind of reminded me of D&D: Wrath of the Dragon God movie, which was actually really well done for it's lack of budget and any known actors.

I'm with Beatrix...definitely peaked my interest, didn't think it looked like shit at all for a fan-made project. Uwe Boll, McG, Ratner...stay the hell away from this property...

Zack Snyder - please buy the rights!

awwww.

even though it's not real, it peaks my interest.

what about an actual zelda movie? All I ask is that McG doesn't get ahold of it, or anyone along those lines.

Cool

That looked even faker than the worst Sci-Fi Channel original, but it was still pretty awesome. I know it's IGN's April Fools prank; but if this was shown to studio execs, it could work to convince them to make it into a real movie.

Wow....

Even though it was obviously fake, the CGI was pretty great in a video game adaptation kind of way. I guess I'm the only one who thought that actually looked pretty cool. If there were big names and less of the cheesy dialogue, this could have actually passed as a real trailer.

I'm still surprised that Zelda hasn't been made into a feature yet. I was sure that, after LOTR, someone would have moved in on this property.

Lol

I think someone went a little too far on their April Fool's Joke. Don't they have anything better to do with their time than make fanboy porn? The money spent on this could have fed ten starving children.

Its a known fact that the trailer is an april fools joke. A pretty good one at that. I have to say that the Zelda games are my favorite games of all time. Ive always wanted to see a live action movie, but couldnt comprehend how it would be done properly. After seeing this fake trailer I realized a Zelda movie could possibly work after all, and hopefully the trailer will open the door for someone to do the real deal.

The Zelda scene actually looked kinda groovy. The cheesy costumes gave it away though. Still, cool for what it was.

Sorry, but Zelda looks like a chick, this film (if it really is a film) has a kind of Speed Racer look to it, not intrested, Lame.

Obviously a joke. Although the actors look awful, the CGI looks fairly good.

I'm not doubting that it's an April Fool's joke, but I've seen clips from the trailer around for months.

While I was watching I got the chills... it's be awesomeness if one day somebody actually had the guts to pull this off for real...
But with a better Link, although Malon wasn't too far off from the character I think.

Never once did that look legit, or even decent, but the part where Zelda is backlit and says "Find me in the future" was pretty sweet.
