I am not a frequent YouTuber, I just go there to look up lyric videos occasionally. But last week I was watching some Zelda-related vids and found a full-length fan-film called The Legend of Zelda: The Triforce Prophecy. A dude by the name of Scotty Whitehurst heads the project as director, writer, and also stars as Link. And yes, he is a lot hotter than the guy from IGN.com’s 2008 EPICLY FAKE movie trailer (*deep, agonizingly slow breath*…AUGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!! …Ahem. Ok. Frustration out.)
So, is this fan movie worth watching? I watched all thirteen parts (each is roughly 8 minutes; the entire movie is about 120 minutes long) plus the blooper reel and “making of” vids. And yeah, I think it’s pretty good. It has a lot of humor, a developing relationship between Link and Zelda (here you can see some inspiration from the old cartoon—Well excuuuuuuse me, Princess! I laughed so hard.), and the music selection is spot-on. The special effects are great, considering that’s it IS a fan film. The acting is good; I wasn’t expecting to be impressed there.
Yeah, I think it’s worth watching. You’ll at least get a laugh out of it, I promise you that. Go check it out.
Here’s the link (HA I almost capitalized “link” there XD) to the videos at Scotty’s YouTube channel: “The Legend of Zelda: The Triforce Prophecy” on YouTube
