Live-Action LEGEND OF ZELDA Possibly Coming to Netflix

Netflix is currently working with Nintendo closely in order to create a live-action Legend of Zelda series that they are calling “Game of Thrones for the whole family.”  

The story follows an ordinary boy named Link who must save Princess Zelda and her fantasy world Hyrule. Just like the Lord of the Rings franchise, this new episodic adventure series will include swords and sorcery, but unlike the previously mentioned Game of Thrones, it will be a bloodless-affair, and is being called light-hearted and very kid-friendly. 

The show, however, has not yet entered production and Netflix is currently seeking a writer for the series.  Since the show is in pre-production, one must keep in mind that Nintendo and/or Netflix may not go through with it, but the fact that there are plans and actively seeking staff shows promise!

    Wasn’t that just April Fool’s rumor? Is Nintendo really going forward with this? doesn’t seem like them to be so open with one of their big IPs.

      Nah, that old IGN trailer the picture is from was an April Fool’s joke from like 2005. Netflix has been throwing this idea around more recently.
