In recent weeks, it has been rumored that Illumination, the studio behind the success of The Super Mario Bros. A movie as the next project is an animated movie about it The Legend of Zelda want to make. But is this really the case?
Chris Meledandri, founder and CEO of Illumination, commented on a report that a movie is in the works.
After the great success of Super Mario Bros game. film It’s reasonable to also expect that they’d like to quickly get a Nintendo remake of the movie, but that turned out to be disappointing.
At the Annecy International Animated Film Festival last week, The Wrap spoke to Meledandri and asked him about the persistent rumor:
“I have no idea where that comes from. I mean, I get that people expect all kinds of things, because we had such a great experience together.
My experience with Nintendo is now part of their board of directors, so the conclusions people draw make sense. But these are just rumours.”
Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri denies that they are developing a LEGEND OF ZELDA movie.
