The Master” from the first game, Link is tasked with solving puzzles to unlock a portal to a realm of beauty.
He’s aided by a mysterious masked man known as The Mask, who takes the form of a human-sized animal.
The movie will tell the story of the Master, who lives on a mysterious island in a forest where he lives under the care of his wife, Thelma.
The Mask is a kind and gentle man who protects the island from the elements, and when he’s not in the act of protecting it, he’s singing.
Singer’s character is described as “a rugged, handsome man who’s been living his life under a blanket of fear and isolation” in the film.
The movie is scheduled to open in theaters on May 21.
