news culture Before Tears of The Kingdom, a Netflix Zelda Series? An artist imagines the rendering with a cast of stars
Using various artificial intelligences and an amazing mastery of photo editing tools, an artist has come up with some visuals for a potential Netflix series The Legend of Zelda. Inspired by a five-star cast, the rendering is truly fantastic.
A series at Tears of The Kingdom?
It’s hard to talk about the best video game works without mentioning The Legend of The Zelda as the software designed by Shigeru Miyamoto has counted for our industry favorite. Absolute measure of action adventure, the license made the great hours of Nintendo consoles until 2017, spearheading the SwitchBreath of the Wild which marked another major turning point for video game design with its revolutionary game design.
From now on, all eyes are on his “sequel”, Tears of the Kingdom, expected next year. In a dream world, what if the franchise managed to get a television or movie format adaptation to accompany this future release? At least this is what digital creator Dan Leveille envisions with a series of impressive visuals.Obviously, these beautiful Netflix-stamped images aren’t official, but they remain gorgeous and may just encourage the streaming platform to consider a real project!
Zelda from Netflix, a dream series?
Not only are the visuals designed by Dan Leveille breathtakingly realistic, but they also show a genuine love for the license. Nevertheless, to arrive at such a rendering, the artist manipulated a lot of tools. First, he used two artificial intelligences – MidJourney and PLATE – to get the first images. Then Dan Leveille adjusted the whole thing using the facial corrector Tencent ARC before you continue photoshop.
To give his work maximum realism, the creator relied on familiar faces by hiring famous actors. We find Tom Holland as Link, Emma Watson as Zelda, Idris Elba as Ganon, Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones as Saria (appeared in Ocarina of Time then in Wind Waker notably), Strangers Things’ Sadie Sink as Malon, the legendary Meryl Streep as Twinrova, Gemma Chan as Great Fairy, Steve Buscemi as Dampé and finally Danny DeVito as Tingle. The rendering is nothing short of inspiring and leaves you wondering what the idea is of seeing a real Live-Action Zelda see the light of day in the future.
