Netflix is developing a live-action series based on the popular Nintendo franchise Legend of Zelda. This is the kind of news that some gamers might call nonsense, but the source is a credible writer from The Wall Street Journal, so I'm just going to go straight to the point:
"The Legend of Zelda," one of the most popular videogame series of all time, is in the works as a television show at Netflix.
The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on "Zelda," 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, this person said.
Neither Netflix or Nintendo were able to confirm at this moment, so it's unclear whether or not this story has legs. We'll keep you updated once we find out more about it.
