THE LEGEND OF ZELDA CG Animated Concept Reel
In 2007, Imagi Studios (TMNT, Astro Boy) created a concept reel to pitch a cg animated Legend of Zelda film to Nintendo. The project died in development but the pitch reel has finally surfaced for Zelda fans to watch and comment upon.
Check out this Legend of Zelda cg fan film teaser from Hong Kong animation studio, Imagi Studios. They’re also the animators behind the 2007 cg animated film TMNT and 2009′s cg Astro Boy feature. Back in 2007, the studio produced a high end concept reel to pitch to Nintendo how they would approach a Legend of Zelda animated film. Sadly, this project died in development and Imagi closed down in 2010 after the poor box office performance of Astro Boy and Warner Bros.’ cancellation of a then-in-development, cg Gatchaman film.
The brief teaser features Ganon, a fleeing Princess Zelda who looks to be trying to keep the Triforce out of Ganon’s reach. And of course Link. Link’s trusty steed Epona also features. Would you have been interested in seeing a Legend of Zelda cg film or would you be more interested in a live-action version? Some gamers believe that cg animated adaptations are the best way to approach video game films. There have been some great cg animated films (Final Fantasy: Advent Children) but there have been a few clunkers as well (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within).
