If you’ve seen the “Maze Runner” film trilogy, you know that director Wes Ball put a lot more effort into making his adaptation of the YA dystopian novel than anyone expected. As /Film’s Jacob Hall notes defense of the filmmaker Hired to direct “The Legend of Zelda,” these films feature action scenes and set pieces as well as “a sense of scope and grandeur that focuses on how the cast of characters interact with and survive their environment.” The productions are exciting but never visually overwhelming or unduly difficult to follow. If that doesn’t prove that she’s well-intentioned to take on “The Legend of Zelda” (a property that always rewards itself for having the same qualities), then sorry princess! (I warned you this would happen.)
Plus, we also get to know Bell, who will continue to flex his muscles by tackling a bigger and tougher post-apocalyptic adventure. “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” — has been trying to scratch a fantasy epic itch for a while now, nearly bringing a movie version of the “Mouse Guard” comic book series to life Before being canceled following Disney’s acquisition of Fox. There’s no doubt that Ball will bring the same energies to “The Legend of Zelda,” and we hope it turns out even better.
