Netflix is Making a Live Action Legend of Zelda TV Show

Cool Legend of Zelda logo A live-action Legend of Zelda television show is reportedly being made and it will be like “Game of Thrones for a Family Audience.” According to an anonymous source that spoke with The Wall Street Journal, Netflix has teamed up with Nintendo in hopes of making a Legend of Zelda TV show a reality. The TV Streaming giant already has several exclusive hit shows, such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, and the Legend of Zelda will be its first video game-related live series. ALSO READ: Assassin’s Creed Movie Release Date is Dec 21, 2016 Much like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, the lore of The Legend of Zelda revolves around swords, sorcery, magical entities and other fantasy elements, but with a more light-hearted, kid-friendly tone. The anonymous source described the TV show as a less gory Game of Thrones, which should be enough to excite anybody. That said, there are a few hurdles in the way of initial production. First, the show currently doesn't have a writer. Second, there’s no telling if Nintendo will go on with the project before and after production starts (the company is renowned for its high quality standards). Finally, no one from Nintendo has made anything official, so it could all be wishful thinking as far as we know. Still, wouldn't it be great if there was a modern-day Legend of Zelda TV show, one that redeems the ridiculous 1989 cartoon? It will be the only Live Action project ever from Nintendo since the hilarious Link to the Past rap commercial in 1991. Gamers and journalists are already weighing in on the possibility, and it’s not out of the question that Netflix and Nintendo are indeed cooking up something. Frankly, we are dying to see Link and Zelda take on Ganondorf in the trappings of prime-time Television. What about you?
