If you are a fan of The Legend of Zelda franchise and want to see someone playing your favorite hero onscreen, you’re in luck! The Zelda Project has been working on a fan film short, titled “The Final Battle,” in an attempt to recreate the battle between Link and Ganondorf from The Ocarina of Time, using their cast of well-chosen actors. In anticipation for the upcoming short film, the Zelda Project released a two minute teaser trailer on March 14th that you can watch below:
The scene depicts Link riding Epona majestically across an open field and then stopping to pet her as he collects his thoughts. Navi characteristically interrupts the hero to remind him that there is a task ahead of him. (Can’t a guy contemplate in peace?) Link issues a consensual nod before marching off toward his final battle with a look of somber determination.
The Zelda Project is a group of fans from the series that uses actors in costume to create fan works in the form of photography and film. You have likely seen some of their pieces featured on The Legend of Zelda fansites and social media pages. The project has released numerous pieces depicting locations such as Lon Lon Ranch, the Lost Woods, and the Fire Temple; and its cast of talented actors and professional costumes features everyone from the main three characters (Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf), to more minor characters, such as Nabooru and Ingo, the indignant ranch worker.
There is no word yet on when “The Final Battle” will be released, but you can follow The Zelda Project on any of their social media outlets for updates, beautiful photography, and extra goodies like wallpapers, in the meantime.
