Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda has been one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises, yet the only adaptation it has ever had was a poorly remembered cartoon in the 1989. Supposedly, Netflix is working on a live-action adaptation for their original programming. Described as a Game of Thrones for a family audience, Netflix is supposedly working closely with Nintendo on the project.

The project is still very early in production, and is still looking for a writer. Netflix declined to comment, and Nintendo could not be reached, so an actual announcement is still some time away. Do you think Netflix would do the Legend of Zelda franchise justice, or should Nintendo kill the project before it gets too far? Sound off in the comments.


About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.
