Netflix Is Reportedly Making A Live-Action 'Legend Of Zelda' Series

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Netflix is supposedly looking to develop its own "Game of Thrones" with some help from fantasy video game "The Legend of Zelda."

According to The Wall Street Journal, Netflix is working with Nintendo to develop a live-action series based on the Japanese company's video game. "Zelda," which is one of Nintendo's most popular games, follows the young boy Link on his journey to save Princess Zelda and the fictional kingdom of Hyrule. Netflix has reportedly described the series as "Game of Thrones" for a family audience, according to the Journal.

"Zelda" inspired an animated series in 1989 that ran for 13 episodes, but has yet to have a live-action incarnation. Nintendo declined to comment on the project to the Journal, saying it doesn't "comment on rumors and speculation.” HuffPost Entertainment reached out to Netflix, which also declined to comment.
