Early in the game (originally on N64), Link is jumped by a masked character known as Skull Kid who steals Link’s horse, Epona, and his ocarina. Skull Kid goes on to be the story’s primary villain, though it’s later revealed that it’s really the mask that holds the dark power. But how the heck did the Skull Kid get the mask?
A new fan film by the visual effects studio Ember Lab imagines a dark origin story for Skull Kid. It’s a beautifully animated short film, with a music remix by Theophany that’s sure to delight any Legend of Zelda fan.
In the video description on YouTube, Ember Lab said the film was a labor of love and a gift to fans, adding that it’s “our take on how the Zelda Universe could be realized on film.”
Well, Ember Lab, your take is an amazing one. In less than five minutes the short film perfectly captures the lush visuals, mood, and music we’d want out of any Legend of Zelda appearance on the big screen. Your move, Nintendo.
