Nintendo axes fan-made Zelda movie, after 4 years in development

A fan-made Zelda movie has now been shelved courtesy of Nintendo.

Dubbed The Hero of Time, this feature-length project took over four years to produce, and was finally made available online to view for all at DailyMotion.com late last month.

It didn't take long for Nintendo to take notice, however, as the company asked for the film to be taken down only two weeks after its internet debut.

"We came to an agreement with Nintendo earlier this month to stop distributing the film," the statement reads on the creator's website. "In the spirit of the holiday season they were good enough to let us keep the movie up for you to watch and enjoy through the end of 2009, but not past 2009."

"We understand Nintendo's right to protect its characters and trademarks and understand how in order to keep their property unspoiled by fan's interpretation of the franchise, Nintendo needs to protect itself — even from fan-works with good intentions."

Pieces of the film still appear on Youtube, however. The company certainly has rights to protect its property, but did they go too far? Should they have been more lenient?

My opinion: Sucks that it got cut after 4 years of work, but the movie(as far as I've seen from it's trailers) were pretty bad, plus I don't really care about fan projects, soooooo............


Thoughts?

Kind of old news, but it still sucks nonetheless.
