    The creators voluntarily withdrew the film from circulation:
    Curiously, Nintendo generally leaves doujinshi and other such unauthorised
    derivative works alone in Japan, where even semi-commercial fan-works with purely pornographic intentions pass completely unmolested,
    with the relationship between fandom and publishers understood to be a symbiotic rather than adversarial one.

    Yeah I saw this and immediately downloaded a torrent of the movie, before that might get pulled.

    It's cheesy, corny, and dorky, but these guys busted their ass and made a cool little Zelda movie, and the music is pretty awesome. Some parts are a little violent for Link, but it's a fan movie, not Nintendo's movie.

    Zelda is one of the worst games to make a movie of......it will be filled with so much hate of fanboyism across the internet its not even funny.

    I wonder if this issues stems from either the creators making money off of their fan-film, or nintendo feeling that this film was being taken as official or at least done under their blessing. Or maybe they actually plan on doing a Zelda movie one day in the not too distant future, but I dont think anyones holding out hope for that.

    Interesting, I never heard about this one. I remember watching a fake trailer a couple of years ago for a live-action Zelda movie. Looks like I'll be hunting for torrents tonight.

    That trailer looked awesome, but it was an IGN April Fool's Joke.

    Looked cheesy, but pretty decent for being fan-made. Shame I missed it.

    I do have one question, though: Out of the 2 fan-made Zelda movies that I know about (this one and the fake IGN trailer), why is it that they both have Link as being right handed? For some reason, even though I played the Wii version of Twilight Princess, this really bugs me.

    I'm watching it now. It's not bad if you consider it's a fan made movie. But seriously don't set your expectations too too high. The only thing that bugs me is that Link is humble and this one tends to be a little Anakany.

    One thing I am noticing is that regarldess of the goofy acting, these guys really worked hard to match Ocarina of Time. Like scene by scene, even the cool scene with Link and Zelda looking through the window at Gannon.
