According to a report published today on The Wall Street Journal, Netflix is currently “in the early stages of developing a live action series based on Zelda.’
The Zelda franchise, known to fans since the late 80s, has shown various versions of the Hero of Hyrule, but the main goal has remained the same: to save Princess Zelda from the malevolent Gannon and to protect Hyrule.
Here are the main points of the report:
- Netflix is looking for writers to work on the Legend of Zelda series
- Netflix describes the series as a “Game of Thrones for a family audience,” one source said.
- It is said Netflix is working closely with Nintendo
With both Netflix and Nintendo in the early stages, it will take a long while before gamers hear anything about the series if this is to become a reality. There is still a possibility, at it happens in the entertainment industry, that either company decides to cancel the series before it gets into production.
This news sounds exciting for fans who have followed and still follow the adventures of Link in the many games of The Legend of Zelda.
