Nintendo going all in on movies?
Giant Freakin Robot has reported that Illumination, the studio behind the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie, will also be lending their talent to an animated Legend of Zelda film.
This information comes from their own “trusted and proven sources”. These sources apparently predicted other big movie news such as Henry Cavill not returning to play Superman and Hugh Jackman reprising the role of Wolverine for Deadpool 3.
A Zelda movie would also make sense given Nintendo’s recent efforts to spread their franchises outside of games and Miyamoto’s own testament to having a good relationship with Illumination.
As with all rumors though, we highly suggest taking this information with a grain of salt. Even if the information is true the movie industry is extremally volatile and it’s possible that plans could change for whatever reason.
Also considering how long it takes for animated films to be created don’t expect to see an official confirmation of this project for a long time.
