Official Zelda Movie Announced

March 31st, 2006 at 11:54 pm by The Missing Link

In the wake of the unveiling of the trailer for the unofficial Zelda movie, it seems as if Nintendo has decided to finally follow suit.

Nintendo today has officially announced the coming of a Zelda movie and has a teaser trailer up on the official movie site. The movie, simply titled The Legend of Zelda is scheduled to come out this winter in the last months of 2006. Unlike the unofficial movie, Nintendo’s film is not slated to be a rehash of any of the games so far released; instead, we are going to be seeing a brand new story unfold on the silver screen. However, Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf will be in the film. Casting information at this point is very sparse, but we do know Johnny Depp will be playing Link, Jessica Simpson will be playing Zelda, Patrick Stewart will be Ganondorf, and Morgan Freeman will be playing the part of some new, unannounced character.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have mixed feelings about this. I’m of the opinion that a Zelda movie could be a really powerful thing… but at the same time, it is pretty much playing with fire. The teaser trailer shows very little of what the movie will be about, and I’m really worried about the project, especially with the casting of this. Nayru love Johnny Depp for playing an excellent Capt. Jack Sparrow, but Link? Colour me unimpressed.

    OMG! That’s awesome!

    Whoa. Patrick Stewart as Ganondorf? I’ll have to see it to believe it…

    When’s it coming out in theatres?

    Google Image Search: the Movie.

    Hahahah, that was so stupid. Nice job.

    March 31st is not AFD. Shame on you TML! If you could’ve just waited six more minutes…:p

    wow didnt expect a actor like johny depp playing link…

    Ha.Ha. Nice

    “The materials on this website are not to be solid, traded, or given away”

    I spy a typo! XD

    Let’s see…it was March 31st when this was posted, but I still have good reason to be suspicious…>_> All I’m seeing is a bunch of pretty scenery and shiny font. And Johnny Depp as Link?! *stops to imagine it for a few seconds* Maaaaaaaybe, but…

    No serious, I heard about it on the news.TML is dead serious about this.*puts on a dreadlock wig and a pirate hat* I am Captain Jack Sparrow.

    i dont no why but i just cant believe its real, the actors wouldnt suit the characters they are playing, i mean jessica simpson, could they pick anyone worse? no offence to her or anything…

    i’ve watched the teaser loads now and i think its gotta be fake, i mean u were only 6 mins off april fools day, but please prove me wrong! lol

    Funnily enough, Pirates Of The Caribbean was aired on TV here in Portugal today. Coincidence?

    I’m captain Jack Sparrow, savvy?

    Dude, that HAS to be a fake, because they didnt show any characters, at least the fan movie did, and …. to fakey. They could have meant that one to be an april fools day LIKE TINGLEBLOG!!! haha…

    This news was SOOOOO posted 6 minutes before April Fools! Why do everybody has to lie for April Fools? It’s so stupid!

    First it was TSA’s exclusive interview with Iwata, then Google Romance, then 1UP’s feature about Apple launching an handheld videogame console, now it’s that Zelda movie! C’mon!

    Just cause a trailer doesn’t have people doesn’t mean its not a trailer. Take a look at the Da Vinci Code trailer. :P

    oh dear…Not this again….If only this wasn’t posted so close to April Fool’s day….I mean the fan movie is more plausable right now than the real thing ever would be….

    So it’s coming out Winter 2006?…..Um…Hello? lol, i mean the release date itself is to ridiculous.

    They have to finish the Metroid Movie first….Right?

    I swear guys, I seen thos on TV, on the news.But I assure you, it’s got a new world (I can’t pronounce it now) a bigger villian than Ganondorf, and new collecting items ( I can’t tell you what) I guess where we live, the news comes by us first.It looks like a rip-off of LoTR, thats what I can tell you positively.

    yeah, april fools is almost done where i live… so i’m going to have to say that i’ve checked every major movie website, as well as sites devoted to Mr. Depp, Mr. Stewart, and Mr. Freeman, (my genetic code refuses to allow me the ability to acknolwdge THAT OTHER ONE’S existence)and sad to say, the’re no evidence this movie is real.

    still, one of the best pranks i’ve seen in a long time.

    While I agree with you that Lindsey Lohan is terrible, she is better than Jessica Simpson! I mean… Zelda is a strong, intelligent, and independent woman, not your average princessy type…

    It’s a hoax. Nintendo said they havn’t even started making the movie yet let alone cast and crew.

    There are rumors going around of Jim Carrey having been cast as TINGLE!

    ^I’d love to see that.

    sorry but that was a terrible attempt.
