Things that Happened: The Legend of Zelda edition.


Okay, so I had to go on a media blackout for three days this week for a class project. No phone, no television, no internet. Couldn’t even read on my Kindle. Yeah, it was…bad, to say the least. But one of the stipulations of the project was that we had to have a ful thirty minute face-to-face conversation with someone. So what do I do? Plop down with my friends and co-writers and we discuss nerdy things, as we do in the mountains of North Carolina.

Our topic of the day was related to Wreck-It Ralph and Disney’s recent purchase of Lucasfilms (which will more than likely be covered in depth in a later article). We started talking about what could be super awesome if Disney decided to go ahead and purchase Nintendo and Sega and a few other video game companies. First thought was: Oh my God, a Pixar Pokémon movie! Second thought was: Oh my God, a Pixar Legend of Zelda movie!

So obviously it made sense to ask who would voice the obnoxious little sprite, your sole constant companion, the most useless thing in the game: Navi. What we got is the following list. It started out as real actors and figures, but it then morphed into something unbelievably silly and weird.

Who should play Navi in the event of a Legend of Zelda Movie?

  1. Sam Jackson
  2. James Earl Jones
  3. Alan Rickman
  4. Fran Drescher
  5. Natalie Portman (think SNL skit)

  7. Howard’s Mom (Big Bang Theory)
  8. Hugo Weaving
