CGI Legend of Zelda movie pitch revealed

2007 pitch from Astro Boy company Imagi Animation Studios features Disney-style depictions of Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf.


Nintendo has yet to bring its iconic Legend of Zelda franchise to the big screen, but that's not to say studios have not pitched the company on the idea.

Superannuation (via Kotaku) recently discovered a 2007 CGI Legend of Zelda movie pitch from Imagi Animation Studios.

The short clip features Disney-style depictions of heroes Link and Zelda, as well as the nefarious Ganondorf and his minions. Check out the full clip below.

Imagi Animation Studios was also behind the 2007 CGI movie TMNT and 2009's Astro Boy. The company's American office, creator of the Zelda clip, has since closed.

The next Legend of Zelda game is this October's The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for the Wii U. In addition, an all-new Zelda game for the Wii U, said to "rethink conventions" of the series, is in development.
