Tears of the Kingdom producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi have shared that they are “interested” in a film adaptation of The Legend of Zelda, especially after the incredible success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

The pair were asked this question by Polygon and, while they confirmed there is definitely interest, it’s ultimately not up to them.

“I have to say, I am interested. For sure. But it’s not just me being interested in something that makes things happen, unfortunately,” Aonuma said.

“Maybe the voice of the fans is what’s important here,” Fujibayashi added.

It’s easy to see why the prospect of a movie based on The Legend of Zelda is an enticing one, as The Super Mario Bros. Movie recently became just the 10th animated film to ever cross $1 billion at the global box office.

Movie or not, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is finally out in the world and is one of the greatest-reviewed games of all time and is sitting at a 96 on Metacritic.

In our The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom review, we said it “is an unfathomable follow-up, expanding a world that already felt full beyond expectation and raising the bar ever higher into the clouds.”
