Chinese Animated Film Rips Off Breath of the Wild Artwork, Passes as Own

To the displeasure of any school teacher around the world, plagiarism is still a thing. That means, from time-to-time, we may find the occasional blatant ripoff: in this case, a Chinese animated feature has used promotional artwork from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and used it as its own material. Check out the ever-so-subtle resemblance:

Of course, Chinese fans were seemingly not happy at the prospect, with many Twitter users voicing their opinions on the matter. Thankfully, the movie itself has no tie-ins to the actual Zelda franchise, other than the art. Next time someone has the idea of stealing photos to pass as their own, maybe they might think twice about the scope of the original piece being used.

If you’re interested in the actual film, feel free to find it here, though we don’t endorse watching it. Ironically enough, the main character, whom clearly looks like Zelda from the photos, doesn’t really look like her in the actual movie:
