A few days ago I spoke about Nintendo's latest foray into film making, and how they have left the door open for possible adaptations of their staggering IPs. Now imagine with me, the sheer, awesome spectacle of a Legend Of Zelda movie, whether live action or animated. Where the Hero Of Time and his array of allies could come together to do battle with the evil Ganondorf and his many incarnations and, once again, save Hyrule from the threat of extinction and lay waste to our wallets. Imagine how that would look?
Well, with great thanks to these fantastic artists, I pieced together a list of some of the best Legend Of Zelda fan art, so we can ponder over plots and conceptual art for our dream Legend Of Zelda movie!
The Forests Of Hyrule
With its vivid browns and greens and the looming, ethereal mist in the background, could this image be foreshadowing the imminent end of forested serenity? (via illiasPatlis)
Could we take to the seas with our heroes? That could certainly be a possibility! (via Dan Warren)
A Battle Of The Ages
A samurai-esque realizing of Link would be a sweet addition. I'd love to see him take on this grizzly baddy! (via David Hsu Yen)
The Triforce Of Power
Here we have Link in the sacred realm. Is he gaining his immense power or is this alluding to the end of the film, after besting Ganondorf and saving Hyrule? (via super-fergus)
The Ghastly Ganon
Or there could simply be an adaptation of Ocarina of Time? That's fine with me! (via bumbleton)
Zelda: Warrior Princess
When all is lost and our hero Link has his faith questioned, could Princess Zelda take up the Master Sword and live on as the Hero Of Time? (via eranfolio)
The End Is Nigh
Here we have Link disposing of an enemy, but without the Master Sword. Could this allude to his early passage of becoming a true hero? (via fluxen)
A Moment Of Solitude
Here we have Link approaching yet another test of his mettle in the imposing Swamp Temple. What mysteries and horrors could he discover in there? (via pertheseus)
All Enemies Are Dust
Link is forcing his way through, what seems like, a terrible wind or attack of some sort. What enemy could be producing this? (via viviphyd)
Between Gods And Men
This is one of the most evocative and incredible pieces of fan-art I've ever seen. Steeped in realism, this mural depicts the most important characters in Zelda lore. Imagine an animated film with this art design... (via AG+)
All of the above pieces have been, quite frankly, astonishing! So come on Nintendo, call these guys up and make the movie happen! Please?
