What makes Zelda great are things you cannot replicate in a movie. Exploring, dungeon diving, puzzles, side quests, that stuff does not really work in movies.

A Zelda movie would be fantastic if you just want to see yet another generic fantasy movie, just with a Hyrule setting and characters.

It would be good if it was done right. I actually enjoyed the cartoon to an extent; it reminded me of a wimpy he-man, and it made me laugh. Now a movie would have to be serious for me to like it. Something with the quality of, say, Avatar, but Zelda and actually be good.

As long as it isn't an anime I will go watch it and give it a chance. Guillermo Del Toro would be an awesome visionary for a Zelda movie, I'd also love Eiji to be along for the ride, I feel that having Shigeru look after everything would kind of downplay it.

It will prob never happen but I would Love to see a Zelda film....

* For one it shouldn't be animated and it should have amazing effects, not like Hollywood effects but a unique style kind of like Avatar!

* It should be a 2 or 3 part series as there is too much content

* Link talking? This would be really weird , if he does speak it should be very little

* The story of the film should be separate from the game series and it should combine the charm of Zelda games combined with an epic story and it also should have many dark themes

I'd like to see a Zelda film, but it probably won't ever happen...

-- I'd like it to be animated, either anime or CGI would be awesome
-- it should definitely be a series; no trying to squeeze everything into one movie!
-- Link can talk, but only a little. it'd be weird seeing him as a blabbermouth
-- I think it could be based off each game, done in the order of the Hyrule Historia canonical timeline

i just feel as though a movie wouldn't be very great, i just have a weird feeling about it. as long as the movie wasn't made by the same people that made the cartoons.

As a project that would be too big to fail, it would probably fail, crushed by the weight of the unreasonable expectations placed upon it.

Wind Waker. Link is played by Michael Cera, King of Red Lions is Sean Connery. Also, Makar is voiced by Elijah Wood and gets his own 20 minute solo. If this is not the movie, I will not consider it cannon.

It would be cool to see happen, but it would be really difficult to do because it's a video game and not a book or something. It would be easier to make a tv show. There was a submission in the podcast a while ago talking about doing a Zelda tv show. If they would do a tv show, it would be either be really good or really bad. Most of us have seen their first attempt at at a tv series.

I think a Zelda movie could work for sure. Two things that are vital to make this work though (imo) are Link being able to talk and the movie(s) being animated. Also, if this ever happens, I would like to see an original plot not based off the games at all, because most movies, unlike most games, are centered around plot. None of the Zelda games (except Twilight Princess because I say so) have a great plot, so an original idea would definitely be better in this situation.

I'd love to see Studio Ghibli make a Zelda movie. For one thing, the anime style is most true to the original stuff, plus their films have always had this adventursome, magical, back-to-childhood quality that I also get from Zelda.
