The Legend of Zelda 1987 Trailer

I Gave Her My Heart, She Gave Me a Jar

by Sean

You've seen God of War. You've watched Inglourious Plummers more times than you'd readily admit. Now find out where it really all began with this recently discovered hidden gem from 1987.

In this charming critically-acclaimed tale of first love, Link (Jon Tomlinson), an eternal optimist and adventurer, seeks to capture the heart of Zelda, an unattainable high school beauty and straight-A student (Zane Bauer). He surprises just about everyone-including himself-when she returns the sentiment. But the high school's over-possessive, megalomaniacal Principal Ganondorf (Dominic Moschitti) doesn't approve and it's going to take more than just the power of love to conquer all.

Perfectly capturing the essence of what it means to be a teenager in the 80s, Nick Murphy, Mike Sadorf, and Dom Moschitti reimagine one of the most celebrated video game franchises of all time with the heart, charm, and wit that only they could. It's the legend of high school. It's the legend of love. It's The Legend of Zelda.

    This is pure genius! I love the old VHS look. Was this a rip on Breakfast Club?

    Holy Crap. I am not exaggerating when I say that's one of the best things I have watched on the net in a long long time. The VHS quality; the breakfast club, FBDO, and other 80 brat-pack style movie references.. the acting, the music, the cinematography.

    You guys went above and beyond on this one. Great work.

    PS: Maybe I'm just overly enthusiastic because 80s movies and Zelda are two of my favorite things.

    In a perfect world, all video game adaptations would be like this. A fantastic blend of characters and themes that uses the old while still covering new ground. It's actually kind of depressing that this isn't a real film. You guys have made my week.

    That 80's music was amazing:) I would've hated it back in the day, but ironically, this is a PERFECT video game adaptation.
