Netflix is being more ambitious with possibly developing â€œThe Legend of Zeldaâ€ into a live-action television series based on one of Nintendoâ€™s most popular video games of all time.
According to the Wall Street Journal, itâ€™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.
WSJâ€™s unidentified source told the publication that it will be a â€œGame of Thronesâ€ style show for a family audience.
Nintendo is very protective of their intellectual property rights. Animated â€œLegend of Zeldaâ€ only lasted one season in 1989 and â€œSuper Mario Bros.â€ movie in 1993 was a total disaster.
Itâ€™s also a strong possibility that this project may never take off. At least thereâ€™s a glimmer of hope.
