Vogt-Roberts gives some details to what he would be trying to remember if he was given the opportunity of directing a Zelda movie. Vogt-Roberts says "The thing about Zelda is Zelda is not Lord of the Rings, right? You cannot forget how quirky and bizarre Zelda is." He continues this by saying that he would think that a middle ground between the traditional and new Zelda would have to be found in some degree, "I think you need to find a way to actually fuse the traditional Zelda and the very new Zelda."

The director goes into more depth about how he would go about doing this, he says combing "the pure just sort of fantasy of The Ocarina of Time and The Link to the Past" with the "newer pseudo-tech stuff." Vogt-Roberts further clarifies that this would have to be done in a underwhelming manor, meaning that both contrasting time-lines of Zelda would have to be carefully placed together to create a cohesive story, that would satisfy both newer players to Zelda and veteran players. Finalizing what Vogt-Roberts told IGN, he also believes that if he was to direct the movie that "I actually fully think Link should not speak the entire film. I would do a film where he's a silent protagonist."
