When "Breath of the Wild" was delayed to 2017, Shigeru Miyamoto famously said, "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad." The same principle hopefully applies to these fan films that I'm awaiting with considerable eagerness. This anticipation is one of the very few things currently motivating me to continue slogging through the sea of raw sewage that is and has been 2018 for me. After considerable delays they will, in theory, release before this year is up, but if not, I'm sure the extra wait time will be worth it. They know people's expectations are high. Unless and until Nintendo greenlights the official Legend of Zelda movie that everybody wants, the freelance work of passionate fans will have to be enough.
An original story with old and new characters.
Legacy [of Courage]
Probably the best adaptation of "Ocarina of Time" we can expect to come along for some time.

Sage of Darkness
This is an old one, originally released in 2008, that I never got to see before it was pulled from YouTube. It undoubtedly will not measure up to modern standards. But it's loved by those who have seen it, and with some digital remastering and effects upgrades it's being re-uploaded one piece at a time. I'm waiting until all ten pieces are up before I watch them, but I look forward to that long-promised day.

About the Author
C. Randall Nicholson is a white cisgender male and a Latter-day Saint, so you can hate him without guilt, but he's also autistic, so you can't. Unless you're an anti-vaxxer, in which case the feeling is mutual. This blog is where he periodically rants about life, the universe, and/or everything.
