Zelda music appearing in Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World

Edgar Wright’s film adaptation of the Scott Pilgrim comic series is looking awesomer and awesomer. According to Siliconera, who saw a screening of the film at Comi-Con, the movie utilizes remixed music and iconic sound effects from The Legend of Zelda series, notably, The Great Fairy Theme.

To acquire permission from Nintendo for the use of the song, director Edgar Wright had to write to Shigeru Miyamoto and allow him a special screening of the film. In his letter to the Zelda creator, he wrote: “This music is like nursery rhymes to a generation.” Apparently Mr. Miyamoto approved, for the song made it into the film. -Zelda Universe

If you’re unfamiliar with Scott Pilgrim, shame on you. The entire comic series is available on Amazon and I highly recommend you read it while you wait for the film to be released on August 13th.
