Aeipathy Industries has come out with a stunning animated cinematic entitled Zeldamotion: A Link to the Past, based on the classic Zelda game. With the tagline “by fans, for fans”, the project strives to tell the story of A Link to the Past in animated style, showing off the potential the Zelda series has as a story-based medium.
The voice cast for the A Link to the Past animated series features some impressive voice talent and some familiar faces for those familiar with the voice acting industry. The cast for the project includes Vic Mignogna, the voice for Edward Elric in the popular Japanese anime series’ Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Kent Williams, who voices Kozo Fuyutsuki in the Rebuild of Evangelion films, Kira Buckland, who is involved in both anime and non-anime related roles (including a role in the Japanese film 5 Centimeters per Second), and Todd Haberkorn, who has worked on numerous anime and video game projects as both a voice actor and director.
This video serves as the first episode in a series based on the A Link to the Past manga by Akira Himekawa. With stunning animation and top-notch voice talent to go along with it, not to mention the beautiful re-arrangements of the music by Koji Kondo, the series shows the potential that a Zelda animated series could bring to the small screen, especially in the episode’s final touching scene.
