New animated movie heading to China rips off Zelda: Breath of the Wild artwork


Well that's pretty damn blatant. I don't get why ripoffs go for content that is so easily identified! They also go for brands from big-name companies. I guess it's really that hard to crack down on these companies and make them stop stealing assets?

You're kidding, right?

Maybe you're looking at it on a small mobile screen or something, but if you view it at a normal resolution, it's extremely clear that it's just a slightly painted over version of the BotW art.

China copied an entire tv show, being Gumball, so I'm not really surprised.

It’s not too far of a stretch to call this a simple coincidence. It’s not like that Zelda artwork was the first “girl in praying pose”.

I’ve seen some blatant rip offs but this is a stretch imo

Totally! They just painted over the Breath of the Wild art. Artists don't like being ripped off. This is stealing work.

The long an infamous mockbuster history is a tale as old as time:

I do wonder if narratively, if there ever has been a case were the mockbuster is better than the movie it's ripping off.

I highly doubt it. I have no proof to back up my claim, yet I can say fairly confidently that no Chinese rip-off surpasses the source material. Usually they rip off something popular/good, and the knock-offs aren't exactly known for their quality. If they were to rip off something absolutely horrible like Birdemic, then yes, they might surpass the source material, but I don't see them doing that

Ok, obvious rip off aside, who else wants to see the movie? XD
