    I dont see what was funny, but good for you:)
    anyway, this just makes the name zelda impure
    I wasnt always a fan of Zelda, mainly because I didn't have a nintendo, but I always respected it and looked up to it. I was always curious to play it. I started to play OOT, but didn't have time to finish it, although I saw Tori finishing it (probably for the hundredt time:s) Now I'm finally playing twilight princess on my own wii..and I'm a much larger Zelda fan than I used to be.
    Actually before I came to know the game Zelda I always thought that Link was Zelda, afteral he's the one you play with

    Naming the game after the portagonist is so cliche though.

    Can anyone realistically see any kind of Zelda movie being made? Personally, I don't really want there to be unless I could write the screeplay. :D

    Can you blame me tho? I didnt know anything about the game...I just saw someone playing once with Link, so what crossed my mind was that he was Zelda

    I couldnt blame you if zelda wasnt a girls name........

    but yeah its a rookie error.





    And los, do you really think you could do Zelda justice? There are few people who can, and I think anything without the direct creative control by Shigsy (Father of nintendo and zelda) isnt worth it.

    Well Zelda isnt really a real name so I didnt really think about it if it was a girls name or a boy's name:d It's fantasy...anything is possible...even the name Anakin was thought to be a girl's name by some...

    anyway about the movie...I do believe more could capture the heart of Zelda, but he better be darn good! And like I said in my previous posts I dont think Zelda is ready for a live-action film, but rather a animé film.

    yep.




    Though after the look of ganon in wind waker and twilight princess, i think its going to be hard to find a good actor, becuase he has very very dark skin, but very bold and sharp features the mix is rare. hairs not a problem, I dont see it not being died for the film, but face and colour are important.

    *SUPER MEGA DUPER SPOILER FOR TWILIGHT PRINCESS!*


    IMAGE ATTACHED BELOW, so SCROLL WITH CARE








































































    Okay that should be enough room, I found a nice pic of ganondorf from twilight princess, his best look so far, he has a very ash like dark face, seems very unnatural, and that flat nose is very out of synch with the colouring, which adds depth, that the races of hyrule are very different from ours. I cant think of a single actor who look like this

    F. Scott Fitzgerald was married to a woman named Zelda. Just a random fact.

    Oh absolutely. I couldn't do it by myself. Shigsy would be essential. It would be one of those movies that would definitely be a collaborative effort. But I'd still want my two cents in, just because I would want it to be the way I picture it, wouldn't you?

    yup, there needs to be immese aesthetic beauty in the visuals, art direction is number one! writing is also a major major factor........no one person can do it alone.



    And if any of you hear the word zelda and either 'uwe boll' or 'paul ws anderson' in the same sentence without the words 'when hell freezen over' then pick up any blunt instruments or torment you have and start a mob......

    It would be awfully difficult to develop the character of Link, since he hardly ever speaks.

    Well that is something they should hold on too, remember the games of Zelda hold also a strong stories, so it shouldn't be that difficult to developp a story that holds the same quality for an anime movie. Besides Link doesn't have to talk...he doens't talk in the games, still we understand what is happening...why should it be different in a movie?

    because of the essential difference between games and films, in the game,s we are link, we observe andinteract as the character, yu cannot have the same experience with a film you can only passively associate with the character and for that we need to know them thus, they need to speak.

    I disagree, Link doesn't speak and we only associate with his actions, even if we control his actions or not, it has nothing to do with what he says or better said, not says. Cause we don't interact that way with Link, through communication. It is indeed not the same experience of course, cause like you said you can only observe and not interact, but that does not mean an observer can't enjoy the story.
