Netflix is Developing a live action "Legend of Zelda" Series!
According to the Wall Street Journal, "The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on TLOZ, about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule, said a person familiar with the matter. As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as Game of Thrones for a family audience."
Now, as most of you know, there was a brief animated series for Zelda in 1989, and an attempt at a Super Mario Bros. movie in 1993. Both were flops. It will be interesting to see how Zelda adapts to live action, though a television series is probably better than a movie.
"As it is still seeking a writer to work on the series, Netflix has a long road to travel before a Legend of Zelda series actually becomes a reality. It’s also possible that Netflix or Nintendo will kill the project before it gets off the ground."
