CGI Zelda Movie Shut Down... 6 Years Ago
Imagi Animation Studios, the company responsible for the CGI Astro Boy and TMNT movies, made a 1 minute test reel to show to Nintendo trying to pitch for a Legend of Zelda movie. The pitch made in 2007 was ultimately turned down by Nintendo, likely due to Nintendo being extraordinarily squeamish about letting an American animation company handle one of their properties after the abysmal failure of the live action Super Mario Bros movie. And hopes that this project would ever be looked at again were rendered null and void when the american branch of the animation company was shut down back in 2010.
But the good news for everyone is that you can see this 1 minute pitch reel Imagi showed Nintendo now online after it got leaked recently. Keep in mind this was just a pitch, not actual movie footage and designs could've changed over the course of production (and it also looks like they were using assets from their TMNT movie to help). So enjoy the demo for what could've been The Legend of Zelda's first big budget movie.
I want this... with Minecraft. I want to exercise while playing video games and avoiding creeper deaths. This is the closest thing to a holodeck that I've seen thus far. Now all they need to do is add Disney's aireal tactitle feedback system ( www.gizmag.com/disneys-aireal-… ) to it and we'd have a working prototype for one of the most immersive holodeck experiences EVER! The future is SOON!
