If The Legend of Zelda Were A Ghibli Movie
Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki and Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto are two of Japan’s most beloved creations. While one works in the realm of film and television animation, and the other in the videogame industry, their work touches on shared themed and values that tend to resonate with a largely overlapping fanbase.
Artist Matt Vince has brought these shared sensibilities to the foreground by imagining what the movie poster for a Miyazaki directed adaptation of Miyamoto’s The Legend of Zelda game series might look like.
The posters capture the open-world adventure feel of the games, intersecting with Miyazaki’s reverence for nature. Vince created one for each wielder of the Triforce – Ganondorf, Link, and Zelda. Check them out below.
