Short but very sweet:
Nintendo should hire these people to do a complete animated Zelda TV series, or even a full-length animated movie.
Seriously, this is the kind of talent you’d surely get for far, far less than any Hollywood studio or other big animation company would cost, but they’d put more heart and soul and time and passion into creating something truly amazing–something that genuinely respects and does justice to the source material–than most of those big studios will ever be likely to do.
A really smart company would at least have someone looking into this as a type, because you never know–I mean, just look at how brilliantly well the basically fan-made but first party published Sonic Mania turned out in the hands of clearly both loving and extremely talented fans.
And the people who made the video above are clearly both loving and extremely talented fans.
And I’m twice as in when it has anything to do with video games:
“In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge.”
Apparently (it’s rumoured at least) you’ll be able to choose what happens next at certain parts of the movie, like one of those “Choose Your Own Adventure” gamebooks, which could be very cool if done right. 🙂
I love how this is done like the Superman trailers but actually appears to be a very different take on things. I think it could potentially be really good.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (I’m in the camp that says this is both a Christmas and Halloween movie equally)
