Narnia was a good movie. I don't see a reason why Zelda can't be a good one too.

Problem about using Final Fantasy as an example of an good videogame movie is bad because Zelda isnt the same story driven game as Final Fantasy.

Zelda as an movie would be awful. I wouldnt want to see it. Zelda was always about gameplay, and not about story or plot.

If I was going to do something with Zelda, it wouldn be called Zelda, it would be a movie based on Zelda but without any sort of mentioning from Zelda.

How can you compare an book adaption to movie to an videogame. Narnia is a classic work of literature, while Zelda is a game.

Zelda as a movie would never work.

If it came out it would have to be totally CGI. Also, Zelda's plot is twice that of FFVII IMO.

Isn't Zelda always about rescuing a princess?

No. That doesn't even happen in every game, you're thinking of Mario.

theyd probally go chronilogically so they would most likely do orcarina first (and it's also the #1 nintendo game of all time) then if it did well theyd move onto majoras mask or the first zelda

The Zelda franchise is too thin in plot and mythology to make a good movie. As an animated series it works.

As an aside, Final Fantasy Advent's children was a poor movie, a Zelda movie would do well not to follow that example.

Would link even be talking in the movie?

I think it would be interesting seeing the main character never talk

A lil late joining but hey what about a revision of the series? Maybe a post-world western style. Just something to think about. Hollywood wants something that will sell as well as something fresh. There is a Zelda rap on Youtube by hiimrawn. Check it out.

There have been many threads about this topic before this one. People always seem to respond the same way. There is no story there, Link does not talk, there is a defensless princess to be saved, etc. If a movie were to be made then I think those involved should look at the things that would work in a movie and things that would not. Link would talk but not be a chatterbox. Zelda would be useful and not be a damsel in distress who is crippled by fear everytime something bad happens. Ganondorf would have a backstory that makes sense and have a logical and realistic reason to want to take over the world. The other characters would fill in secondary story elements. Link would not need to travel alone all the time or do battle with temple bosses or play music all the time. That is the game, its not that hard to imagine that good characterizations and character development can make a movie engaging. So can, a good set or characters. Properly realized sets, locations, makeup, music, etc. Everything that screams Zelda in the experience would add to make it an enchanting movie to behold. Which story or era should they make as a movie?! I have so many picks but they really should pick the Ocarina of Time. Why Ocarina of Time, well I think it could be broken up into a three part movie like The Lord of The Rings films. The game story is simple but the characters in the background could be brought more into the forefront to make a smaller story bigger. The development of the main characters would be important as well. This would explain why three films, the three main chracters are Link, Zelda and Ganondorf. Plenty of time in a film to explore their stories not just focusing on the adventure or main thread story. There are backstories and side stories such as Why are they always the same people in the Legend of Zelda stories. Why is Link always the Hero of Time. Why is Ganondorf so hungry for power?1 Why is Zelda so useless and why is she going around dressed as a dude ninja? A tv series could work as well and probably moreso than a series of feature films because TV with big scale is becoming more and more accessible. Game of Thrones anybody! So yea, bring Zelda on in any medium. Just keep the moronic people away from it, those hacks who don't know how to make a movie from a game... smile.

I imagine this is what pre-production would look like:

Producer 1: So it is settled, we will move forward with the Legend of Zelda on the big screen.

Producer 2: Great, every boy in the world will want to see this.

Producer 1: Right, but how do we make even more money off of this?

Producer 3: We could make it appeal to girls to.

Producer 1: Ok, how do we do that?

Producer 3: We cast Justin Bieber as Link!

Producer 2: Genius!

Maybe as an anime film from Studio Ghibli with Goro Miyazaki as director, who about it?

I've thought the same thing since I played the game in early 90's.I think it should be a live-action trilogy as well.Part I when Link is a boy,village gets destroyed & he starts to explore the nearby worlds,learns his first skillset.Part II Link is a teenager,meets Princess Zelda,hones his skills,meets adversaries.Part III would be adul Link culminating in the epic battle scene with archnemesis Ganon.If done right it could be the biggest blockbuster trilogy of all time.Imagine the locations,sets,costumes,props,battle scenes,etc.Mulling some script ideas over in my head.Hubby is in the film industry & something tells me to get on this.All I know is if done right,it will be a moneymaker & make Zelda fans around the world estatic.
