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.


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.


  • 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



  • 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.
