Zelda almost had a CGI movie

Quote:
Check this film pitch from Imagi Studios



The Legend of Zelda is a series that's ripe for a movie adaptation, but aside from the odd fan film here and there, we'll likely never see an official project materialize. That doesn't mean attempts haven't been made, however!

Back in 2007, Imagi Studios, the animation house responsible for the CGI TMNT and Astro Boy films, pitched the above snippet in the hopes of greenlighting a proper Zelda movie. As history has shown, the company wasn't successful.

I was personally excited for both TMNT and Astro Boy only to be underwhelmed when they finally saw release. From the strange character proportions, weak scripts, and terrible pacing, the amount of missed potential was vast. But I do appreciate the attempts at bringing the Ninja Turtles back to the big screen as well as reviving Astro Boy. Imagi also had a Gatchaman movie deep in development before it got the ax. If nothing else, these guys were some serious old-school geeks.

I wonder how Zelda would have turned out. Couldn't have been any worse than the average videogame movie (which isn't saying much, I admit).

Honestly don't know what to think, Zelda and Link look fine, but...dear god, that Ganon

I'd love to see a movie adaptation. I would probably love it no matter how bad it was, honestly. x.x

Zelda would just be too cliche for the big screen, as seen in that short pilot trailer. The story was made for a video game, and that's where it thrives. Translating it directly would be a mistake, and would even commit itself to sexist accusations. At the same time, deviating too much from the essence of a classic Zelda narrative would cause outcry within the fanbase. While financially it would probably be a success no matter who directed and designed it (since who wouldn't go see a Zelda movie), I'm glad that Nintendo haven't forked over the rights to some of their most beloved characters for the sake of a movie adaptation which would more than likely blow.

It is. My favourite quote was when someone was asking for their names;
Mario: "Mario Mario"
Luigi: "Luigi Mario".
Their last names were Mario. Oh god the movie was so bad it was funny.

I think the word "No" sums up a Zelda movie pretty well, imo.

I'm pretty sure that Disney, Pixar and other animation film studios have churned out much worse than this and nobody said a thing. Like last years disgusting Tinkerbell film, or this years "Planes"..

The trailer didn't even look bad. I'd probably watch it and enjoy it just as much as any other mediocre cartoon. I think people are too busy spewing their none existing film and media degree all over the thread. Lighten up, people, your right to criticize will still be available even if you don't use it everyday.

Besides, too cliche for the big screen? What animated film these days isn't cliche? I'd go as far to say the majority of films even that aren't animated are cliche.

I agree with like everything right here. Trailer definitely peaked my interest.

And there lies the problem. It'd be a mediocre cartoon. That's not a good thing.
