Angsty Legend of Zelda Movie Trailer Surfaces


If Legend of Zelda were filled with teen angst, this is what you'd get.

This trailer isn't actually from a Legend of Zelda [http://www.amazon.com/Legend-Zelda-Skyward-Sword-Nintendo-Wii/dp/B002BSC54I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1297614750&sr=8-1] movie released in the 1980s, but it's what a one would be like were one to exist. If Legend of Zelda was a teen drama, that is.

From the creators of God of War: Indie Movie [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/93935-Inglourious-Plummers-A-Plummers-Work-is-Never-Done] comes The Legend of Zelda (1987). In the movie, Link is that not too cool, not too nerdy kid that aspires to go out with Princess Zelda, the queen of school. Ganon is the school principal, who of course has a grudge with Link, while Midna is that oddball girl you always wonder about. It's interesting how well Zelda's characters fit these archetypes.

If the trailer seems familiar, you must have watched The Breakfast Club [http://www.amazon.com/Breakfast-Club-Flashback-Emilio-Estevez/dp/B001AEF6BI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1297615929&sr=8-3-catcorr] recently. It takes scenes from classic '80s movies and alters them with a Zelda theme. You can watch a comparison below.


Perfect use of Tears for Fears [http://www.amazon.com/Shout-Very-Best-Tears-Fears/dp/B00005NERW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1297617120&sr=8-3].

This could be a potentially huge candidate for a 'Farting The Moonlight Sonata' award.

Is it just me, or did they throw a LOT of Ferris Beuller in the comparison one.
EDIT: Ah, I see, it was a mash-up... I thought they had just taken the straight Breakfast Club trailer.
Just saw the GoW one. Hilarious.

I'm going to say the same three things I said when you guys put up that God Of War video.

1. That Zane Baur is really, really hot. Had to be said.
2. Those guys do good work. Very clever.
3. Athena is actually Kratos' step-sister, so they kind of fucked that up. She(the girl in the video) probably should have been his wife or something, not Athena.

Am I the only one that would really like to see that made? It looks awesome in an epic terrible 80's film way.

Wow, nostalgia's kinda like an ice-cream headache. You know it's gonna be painful but you just can't stop yourself indulging anyway.

I've got to go watch the Breakfast Club again...

It?s pretty good that they were able to recapture the 80's feeling especially the VHS quality.

Am I the only one wants a movie of Link: The Faces of Evil, complete with the same voice acting quality?
Still, interesting.
(Oh, and I know I am never the only one. You want to see that just for lols, and you know it.)

And there I was thinking nothing could improve on The Breakfast Club. I especially liked the relevance of 'You mess with the bull, you get the horns'. Now I see that John Hughes was clearly referencing Ganon there...
