In 2008, a trailer was released for a possible The Legend of Zelda movie. Zelda fans worldwide rejoiced that their favorite bush wacking, pot smashing hero would be coming to the big screen.
Unfortunately, it was also a fake trailer for an April Fools' day prank, which angered a lot of LoZ fans. Recently, there was news a Legend of Zelda Netflix series was in development.
Unfortunately, these also turned out to be rumors. The previous CEO of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, stated "As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information."
As for now, it seems the only thing we can hope for is another video game and a theme park attraction, as recently Universal Studios made a deal with Nintendo to use their properties in their theme parks. Here are some of my ideas for a Legend of Zelda movie.
Now, I have three Zelda games that I absolutely love. I didn't get to play the earlier Zelda games, as I grew up in the early 2000's. My first experience of Zelda was The Legend of The Wind Waker.
Unlike many others who played Ocarina of Time first, my first experience was with Legend of The Wind Waker. I fell in love with the story, the characters and even the graphics seemed perfect!
After playing The Wind Waker, I searched for even more Zelda games I could get my hand on. The one that was recommended to me was Ocarina of Time.
This is my favorite Zelda game of all time. Everything about it is just marvelous. The bosses and the dungeons in the game would be perfect for a movie adaptation.
I was Skeptical at first, but this game blew my mind. I felt like I was playing one of the classic LoZ games. There was some points that the game even felt like a tearjerker to me.
So, do you think a Legend of Zelda movie would work?
