The Legend of Zelda is one of gaming’s most consistently beautiful franchises, full of unique landscapes and expansive horizons. So shouldn’t a (theoretical) film adaptation be just as pleasing to the eyes? I imagine that thought – or at least, one close to it – was going through artist Matt Vince’s head when he created this beautiful teaser of Zelda as a Studio Ghibli movie.
The resemblance is uncanny, especially near the end when Link is riding up a mountain slope on Epona. Even the font is dead on. I doubt we’ll ever see Zelda come to the big screen, but if it did, the people in charge could stand to take some pointers from Matt’s work here.
