Netflix is being more ambitious with possibly developing “The Legend of Zelda” into a live-action television series based on one of Nintendo’s most popular video games of all time.
According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s in early stages of development about the hero Link saving princess Zelda in the fantasy world of Hyrule. It is currently seeking writers to work on the show.
WSJ’s unidentified source told the publication that it will be a “Game of Thrones” style show for a family audience.
Nintendo is very protective of their intellectual property rights. Animated “Legend of Zelda” only lasted one season in 1989 and “Super Mario Bros.” movie in 1993 was a total disaster.
It’s also a strong possibility that this project may never take off. At least there’s a glimmer of hope.
