Fan art imagines The Legend of Zelda as a Studio Ghibli film by Hayao Miyazaki


By now you know Nintendo is open to making movies again, and there are plenty of options to consider when it comes to pairing directors with their IPs. We had a few suggestions of our own, though Matt Vince has a pretty great “what if” scenario.

Vince posted three posters on Tumblr that imagine The Legend of Zelda as a Studio Ghibli production directed by Hayao Miyazaki. While the likelihood of this happening is practically nil–Studio Ghibli has temporarily halted production following Miyazaki’s retirement–it’s nice to imagine the possibilities. The “what if” is really an “if only.”

Check out all three of these poster images in the gallery.
