“Mario and Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto has apparently given his blessing to the movie adaptation of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, based on the heavily video game-influenced comic of the same name, specifically for its use of video game music.
According to a new interview with Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright conducted by star Michael Cera in the new issue of Wired magazine, via GoNintendo, Miyamoto had to screen the action flick in order for some Nintendo music to be used in the film. Wright says he lobbied Nintendo to get the rights to use music from The Legend of Zelda in the movie during a dream sequence.
Wright says he wrote to Nintendo that the Zelda tune in question was ‘like nursery rhymes to a generation.’ Cera would probably agree, telling Wright that Super Mario Bros. 3 was a Nintendo classic ‘deep in my DNA.’”
