Zelda almost a movie


This is footage from a 2007 movie pitch to Nintendo for a Legend of Zelda Movie by Japanese animation studio, Imagi (you may know them for the CG TMNT and Astro Boy movies a few years ago)

As you can probably tell, Nintendo instantly shut the project down, but this is all that remains of the original pitch to them.

I sincerely doubt it's down to the character designs being more akin to Imagi's style, rather than the more familiar Ocarina of Time/Twilight Princess/Skyward Sword look of the Zelda cast, but Nintendo from the early 90's onwards have always been pretty ruthless at declining any Movie for their properties, especially American, (they're possibly still bitter after the car crash that was the live action Super Mario Bros movie) but it's an interesting thing of what could have been!

I only wish it could have been.

at least The Hero of Time got released. I still have a copy from before Nintendo shut it down.
