Nintendo Would be LEGO Movie Producer’s “Holy Grail”

The LEGO Movie’s delightful collision between pop culture giants was adored by many fans, but producer Roy Lee recently revealed that his own blockish dreams take a decidedly Nintendian form.

During a discussion (via. Game Informer) around video game movies at DICE 2016’s  “Franchise Fever: Pursuing Ideas and Big Audiences” panel, Lee gave his thoughts on what kind of movie he’d most like to make if the chance ever arose.

“Mine would be Nintendo. I think Zelda, Mario, and the whole universe of characters would be perfect for a Lego Movie type of [film]. I don’t have the rights to it, but I would love to. That would be my Holy Grail.”

Considering the cheery overtone and charming humour abundant in some of Nintendo’s best-loved titles, a mascot mashup could be well-suited to a film in the LEGO Movie vein.

Accompanying Lee on the panel was Adrian Askarieh, CEO and President of Prime Universe Films, who agreed that Nintendo possesses fantastic film potential. When the pair were asked how video game adaptations could be better approached, they both replied that game creators should be involved in the creative discussion from the beginning, as in as much of the project’s development as possible.

Lee and Askarieh are currently collaborating on a feature film adaptation of the Deus Ex series.

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
