Zelda Movie to Contain 12 Straight Minutes of Link Waiting for Rain to Go Away

KYOTO, Japan — Nintendo has announced that the live-action Zelda movie will contain a 12 minute scene of Link waiting for the rain to go away so he can climb again.

“We are very confident that this is the right direction to take the movie in. When making games form follows function. Therefore, as we make this movie, it needs to follow the function of the game exactly,” said game director Shigeru Miyamoto.

“Really, this movie is going to be a blockbuster, just like all of the other movies Avi Arad-san has made. I am aware of some doubts as to his abilities, however with the oversight of Nintendo we can guarantee that the movie will not only be good, but mechanically accurate as well.

After the announcement, fans poured out their overwhelming support towards this bold decision on social media.

“Miyamoto is making the right choices here guys,” states twitter user ZeldaFan1991. “Link waiting out the rain is integral to his character. Hell, it’s more plot relevant than Zelda herself. Those moments where you are sitting inside the stable, listening to the music, longingly looking out at the mountain you want to climb but can’t – it’s poetry.

“We might even see him cook something out of boredom. I personally cannot wait for this rendition of Link to be on the big screen, and see this ennui unfold in real time.”

Movie critics also weighed in with their thoughts, keeping the Super Mario Bros. movie in mind.

“Yeah, I mean it can’t be too different from that other video game movie, the uh – the mario one? Yeah.” recounted movie critic Ricardo Spendlove. “I mean, in the mario one, they all stop to play Mario Kart for like twelve-ish minutes. So this will probably be the same deal.

“Between you and me, I’m just looking forward to being able to go take a dump while it’s all going down. I take my best craps during the boring parts of movies. Like recently with the Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie, that was like an all you can poop buffet”

At press time, Miyamoto has also hinted that Link would spend a large amount of time farming dragon parts and painstakingly looking for the best horse so he’s prepared for the third act finale which he referred to as “surprisingly exciting”
