The Legend of Zelda Movie: Should it Happen?

"Lately it seems like Hollywood can get enough of video-game movie adaptions, with games like God of War, Halo, and World of Warcraft making their film debut in the future, it makes fans wonder. Will a gaming franchise like The Legend of Zelda, that has stretched across generations of gaming and still left fans happy for years to come, ever make it’s Hollywood debut?

Depends,they would have to modernize it and change the main character a good bit(talks and has more of a background story)Though it would be good if done right...never really be a fan of zelda,when i was a kid i loved them though.My favorite is Wind Waker :D

Hollywood would butcher it.

NO because watching a movie where the main character doesn't speak is stupid.

yeah i just saw that at the bottom

That's part of the debate, if he would ever speak in a film version.

Hell no he shouldn't speak!!!

If they stay fully true to the game it might work...

Sure, but only as a CGI movie.

Games don't need live action movies. Watch FFVII:AC:C, or the trailer for Resident Evil Damnation. Far closer to the games then a live action movie would ever get.

After all of the bad movie adaptations of anime, games, etc. the answer should be an obvious 'no'. A good adaptation is possible, but unless the director and/or writer actually knows enough about the source material, the movie will almost certainly fail like the many before it.

Me, personally, I have lost all faith in there being any such good adaptation of LoZ thanks to my experience with movies like The Last AIr Bender, Legend of Chun-li, Dragon Ball Evolution, The King of Fighters, etc.

Like I said, it's possible, but the odds are against it being any bit good, in my eyes at least.

You're right. Though i'm looking forward to the anime show.
