Fans of The Legend of Zelda have always wanted a feature film based on the games of their favorite hero Link, and after the infamous IGN fake trailer demand has been even higher.
The series was apparently much closer to a film adaptation than we ever thought.
Imagi Studios, responsible for the animated TMNT and Astro Boy movies, pitched an animated film to Nintendo, which almost immediately shut down development. Luckily the pitch video has surfaced online (via io9) and features many of our favorite characters from the series and many allusions to what the plot might have been.
Take a look at the trailer below to see what I’m talking about, and if you want a look at the pre-vis comparison, you can head to Adam Holmes’ page here.
So Zelda fans what you think?
