    There may already be a topic of this--- but if there is, I cant find it so here it is.

    Who would you cast for a film of The Legend of Zelda?

    I have supplied a picture of Natalie Portman as Zelda, which I think is rather fitting :D


    So, who would you have to play Link (yound and adult)? Zelda (young and adult)? Ganondorf? Who would voice The Great Deku Tree? etc There are countless characters to consider, but the main ones are the most important ofcourse. And remember, you can choose actors from any time, this is just dream stuff...

    My opinion.....

    Young Link: There arent many great options for young kid actors but I think (no not cause Im a Star Wars fan) that the young Jake Lloyd would be suited for this. But yeh certainly not now--- the guy looks like a potato!

    Adult Link: River Phoenix, the way you see him in The Last Crusade :D

    Young Zelda: I dont know the girls name--- but the Queen or whatever she is from the end of The Never Ending Story would be quite suited!

    Adult Zelda: Like I said, Natalie Portman would do a good job..... But Cedric thinks Pamela Anderson would do a better job.... I wonder why.... Just kidding :D He thinks she looks worse than Jake Lloyd!!

    Ganondorf: This is a difficult one--- one that I thought of was Williman Dafoe, altho, he's maybe too small but that can always be fixed with CGI or even throught the clothing...

    The voice of The Great Deku Tree: James Earl Jones or John Rhys-Davies....

    Rauru: Certainly John Rhys-Davies

    Nabooru: Salma Hayek

    Young Malon: Emma Watson from Harry Potter

    Adult Malon: Keira Knightley

    Impa: Angelina Jolie

    Darunia: Charlton Heston (voice)

    Adult Ruto: Rebecca Romijn

    etc etc etc

    Your thoughts?

    you could maybe even post actors that make no sense....let's see the adult link...what about Mike myers, cameron diaz for the adult zelda...lol:D

    Well that's her idea...but if you prefer another one...just post it!

    Adult Link: Domt know who River Phoenix is, care to specify?

    Young Zelda: Never ending story is a old film, expect the girl to be older than natalie portman by now. I have no other ideas though

    Adult Zelda: Natlie portman is a great idea, good thinking

    Ganondorf: No way willem dafoe, maybe the guy who playted jesus in the passion of the christ (and hge was the lead in the new count of monte cristo).

    The voice of The Great Deku Tree: Not john rhys davied, anyone is going to make the treebeard link in a second, making it super-cheesy.

    Rauru: Certainly not John Rhys-Davies, rauru = wise, rhys davies jsut seems too scottish for it. Although i have no better ideas

    Nabooru: maybe not Salma Hayek. Jay Lo would be perfect in my opinion.

    Young Malon: Emma Watson is good

    Adult Malon: Keira Knightley is good aswell

    Impa: Angelina Jolie has the lips for it, but seems too young.

    Darunia: are you kidding about heston?

    Adult Ruto: Rebecca Romijn who?

    I certainly would! River Phoenix was a great actor! First choice! (if he wasn't dead!)

    Okay, as I said in my original post--- this is just a fantasy idea--- I know that River Phoenix is dead, I'm just giving an example as I think he would be perfect for link----- I'll repeat once again, you can choose any actor from any time! And like Anakin said, you can even choose the most ridiculous ideas also......... We're not casting a film here! Its just for fun, hence my options.......

    now that would be a neat idea but i wouldn't know who to pick out for the cast. i've only play toot. (the ocarnia of time) on n64 and of course the original two on the nintendo entertainment system. I've never played any of the others. What would the story line be though? It always seems to revolve around gannon trying to take over hyrule and link spoils his plans or zelda gets kidnapped (again).

    Gad... Not Hayden. *cringe*

    I woudl pick all unknowns for a Zelda movie, unless there was some actor out there who just looked like Link (which I can't think of any right now).

    you know who would be good maybe, and he's not that very known...that guy who played scarecrow in batman begins...although he might be too old. At least for twilight princess, cause link seems younger in twilight princess than in ocarina of time, although I think he's meant to be the same age.
