Take a seat and grab some popcorn, because Kotaku recently spoke to Eiji Aonuma about ideas for a Legend of Zelda film adaptation. More after the jump!
Aonuma said the idea for a Zelda movie had been tossed around, including ideas for making the movie interactive and inviting audience participation in some way.
“This is something that me and Mr. Miyamoto talked about. If we were to make a Zelda title, if we had interest in doing that, I think really what would be most important to us is to be able to play with the format of a movie, make it more interactive, like you’re able to take your 3DS into the theater and that leads you into participating in it somehow. We wouldn’t want to make it the same as any other movie. We want to somehow change what a movie is.”
The idea sounds intriguing, but as a major film buff, I would hope that the movie itself is of a high quality before adding in interactive extras. Video game movies have a tendency to flop at the box office, so Aonuma and the rest of the team would have their work cut out for them. However, it might be fun bringing my 3DS to the theater!
