[Movies] Nintento Exec Says A Zelda Film Would Use Audience Interaction

But there isn't one moving forward...
Don't get too excited, because there are no specific plans to make it at this time. However, Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma recently spoke to Kotaku about a potential Legend of Zelda film and said that if one were made, the company would use it to promote an audience interactive experience in theaters.
Aonuma said of the potential film, "This is something that me and Mr. Miyamoto talked about. If we were to make a Zelda title, if we had interest in doing that, I think really what would be most important to us is to be able to play with the format of a movie, make it more interactive, like you're able to take your 3DS into the theater and that leads you into participating in it somehow. We wouldn't want to make it the same as any other movie. We want to somehow change what a movie is."
Nintendo has never been particularly eager to make films from its properties ever since Super Mario Bros. infamously bombed in 1993.
