Zelda x Ghibli Film Trailer Imagines the Perfect Miyazaki-style Legend of Zelda Movie

Prepare your feels, kids.

Few things in this world incite as much nostalgia as Legend of Zelda or Hayao Miyazaki. So when artist Matt Vince combined the two in a video to promote the Zelda x Ghibli movie posters he made, he unleashed a heartbreakingly tender nostalgia bomb the likes of which the world has never seen.

Okay, maybe that comes off as a little too dire, especially given the content and subject matter at hand. All the same, though, this incredible “trailer” really captures the answer to a question I didn’t know I was waiting to have answered: what if Miyazaki and Nintendo teamed up to make a movie? And, you know, what if that movie was about the Legend of Zelda?

Hot damn. If this trailer is or was any kind of indication, then the world is seriously missing out by not trying to get the two to work together. Vince is especially good at emulating Miyazaki’s careful, skilled hand while still allowing his own talent to shine through. The devil’s in the details, and this all-too-short video is packed full of ’em.

Kyle Landry’s musical stylings accompany the video; Landry previously gained popularity amongst the denizens of the internet when he began to demonstrate his piano talents live on Twitch. Here, he plays the Ocarina of Time title screen music with much skill. This version of the song is from another video of Landry playing an OoT medley, which you can check out for yourself. It’s perfect, and it really rounds out the whole sentimental, emotional Miyazaki vibe of the entire video.

Excellent, excellent work.
