Yes, I know it’s an april fool hoax, but this is possibly one of the most detailed, amazing hoaxes I’ve seen. The fellows at IGN created a faux trailer for a Legend of Zelda movie. I must say, the trailer looks awesome, and I wish the movie were really in production, but ah well.
Few videogame properties hold the cachet of The Legend of Zelda. As a film project, it’s on the scale of Lord of the Rings. But no one has tackled a live-action adaptation of the storied franchise… until today. Production Company Rainfall Films has asked IGN to premiere the very first footage from their live-action Zelda film — a very literal adaptation of the magical epic — and, of course, we said, “Yes!”
My last experience with Zelda on the Wii was highly favourable, and left me with a wonderfully enjoyable experience. Pity that actual game-to-movie conversions are never this good!
