The Legend of Zelda was a cancelled animated film adaptation of Nintendo's video game series and franchise of the same name, which was supposed to be released by fellow studio Imagi Studios.

Plot[]

The plot would follow the same story as the games.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Imagi Studios shut down production and went out of business due to the box office failure of the 2009 Astroboy film.

Result[]

  • The film was permanently cancelled. 
  • Illumination began development on an animated Super Mario Bros. movie, and if successful, could make more Nintendo films. With the Mario movie, now being a critical and financial success, Zelda is presumably included.
  • Nintendo is collaborating with Avi Arad and Sony Pictures to work on an upcoming live-action Zelda movie

Trivia[]

  • If you listen closely, one of the sounds the hostile creatures make (name not known) is directly taken from the Tyrannosaurus rex from Jurassic Park during the Gallimimus chase scene.
