Netflix Rumored to be Developing Legend of Zelda Live-Action Series

Hey! Listen! According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is working with Netflix to bring a live-action The Legend of Zelda show to the streaming service. Netflix is describing it as Game of Thrones for a family audience, and while I wouldn’t traditionally associate the two properties, any comparison to the HBO series is sure to draw attention.

There haven’t been a lot of Nintendo adaptations, with only a handful of cartoons and the infamous Super Mario Bros movie in 1993, which starred the late Bob Hoskins in the titular role. The Legend of Zelda is still in the earliest stages, with a writer still being sought, so it will be a long time before it actually comes to fruition.

That’s assuming it happens at all. This news has been all over the Internet today, but as far as anyone can tell The Wall Street Journal is still the sole source of the news. Netflix and Nintendo both declined to comment. According to the Wall Street Journal, all of this information comes from someone “familiar with the matter,” so be sure to take this all with a big, hopeful grain of salt.

Now to wrack my brain trying to think up a fantasy cast.
