The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a live-action Legend of Zelda series is in the works over at Netflix.
The series, which follows Link, an ordinary boy, who sets off to rescue the Princess Zelda from evil and save the kingdom of Hyrule, is currently in early stages at Netflix. The online distributor is describing the series as Game of Thrones for the family.
This isn’t the first Zelda television series either. In 1989 Nintendo released a short-lived 13-episode animated series following the adventures of Link.
Netflix is still seeking writers for the series. Whether the live-action Legend of Zelda series will see the light of day on is a question we’ll have to keep asking. Until an official announcement, it may be best to keep our excitement in check.
I don’t know how I feel about this. This feels more like something that should be a web series.
