Yes…sometimes I do read the Wall Street Journal, and for good reasons like this. The news outlet is reporting that Nintendo and Netflix are in discussions to develop a live-action version of the classic game series “The Legend of Zelda.” Netflix is describing it as Game of Thrones for a family audience.
Netflix has begun searching for a write, but this is the early stages of development so we could be waiting a while before Link hits our TV screens in a live action capacity. This isn’t the first time Nintendo has tried to launch a live action version of one of their games,but as the outlet states, Nintendo is very protective and any adaptation of their properties must meet their strict standards.
The Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular game franchises in Nintendo history, launching just over twenty games since 1986. Later this year, Nintendo will launch a new version of the game for their Wii U platform.
