for those lazy who hadn't watch the video an the ALIENS who never saw that movie, let's say:
The three fairies in the movie resemble Din (Flora), Nayru (Merry Weather), and Farore (Fauna), and act in a very similar way as Navy (and the other fairies companions of the series). The epic final battle using a magic "sword of truth" is very similar to the way Link killed ganon several times (especially OOT, where the sword at the end glows). The overall look of the Castle and castle town in the movie looks like TP's one. some enemies look like Zelda enemies in early installments of the series. And last but not least...AoL takes clear inspiration from the old Sleeping Beauty fairytale.
coclusion: Disney' Sleeping Beauty could have been an inspiration for Shigeru Miyamoto. They at least share a lot of similarities. Coincidences? Or is this movie one of shigeru's favourites?
Thanks everyone for reading
thank you beemnorv...sigh you're the only one who replied...
I'm replying to you thread, too.
I noticed the Sleeping Beauty reference in The Advetnure of Link, but I never noticed all the other references and similarities!
I wouldn't be too suprised if Sleeping Beauty was set in the Zelda Universe. If anything, Sleeping Beauty appears to be an actual literal legend of the entire Zelda series, or vice versa.
The Advetnure of Link, for a start, can be called Sleeping Beauty's 'literal legend', as they hae no actual in-universe connections and are both obviously different fictional universes, but their storylines are very similar. And you can also say that Sleeping Beauty inrpised The Legend of Zelda, as you said.
The shield in Sleeping Beauty is also exactly the same as the shield used by Link in The Legend of Zelda- the first title, by the way.
