Movie Producer Roy Lee Says Nintendo Version Of Lego Movie Is ‘Holy Grail’
Movie producer Roy Lee said that his “holy grail” project would be a Lego Movie-style film that encompasses Nintendo characters, during the 2016 DICE Summit,
“Zelda, Mario, the whole universe of characters, I feel like could be perfect for a Lego Movie-type movie,” he said. “I don’t have the rights to it, I would love to — that’s my holy grail,” he said.
His answer was prompted when asked what he would like to work on next.
When Lego Movie came out in 2014, it featured a slew of different characters from different franchises like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.
There was also rumor that Nintendo was gearing up to release a Zelda-themed TV show for Netflix, but Nintendo denied the rumor.
In August 2015, Nintendo’s Shigeru Minamoto explained that the company is looking to take their ideas further into the entertainment industry.
“As we look more broadly at what is Nintendo’s role as an entertainment company, we’re starting to think more and more about how movies can fit in with that,” Miyamoto said at the time. “And we’ll potentially be looking at things like movies in the future.”
