Mario isn’t the only Nintendo favorite set to get screen time. Netflix is developing a live-action series that will bring Link and the rest of Hyrule to life.
 
According to the Wall Street Journal, the project is in its very early stages of development. The story will involve much of what Nintendo and Legend of Zelda fans are already familiar with. According to an unnamed source for Wall Street Journal, it will involve a young boy named Link who must rescue a Princess named Zelda and protect Hyrule.
 
The source also said the production would be a Game of Thrones-style show intended for a family audience. HBO’s hit series is highly acclaimed for its high-budget production values and writing. The series has won awards every year since its 2011 premier.
 
Netflix is working very closely with Nintendo to produce the series. Nintendo is often very careful and controlling with how its intellectual properties are showcased in any medium – except for the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie; who knows what happened there.
 
The series is currently not in production at the moment. Netflix is still looking for a writer, and it is possible for either Netflix or Nintendo to stop the project before it begins production.
 
Wall Street Journal said a Netflix representative declined to comment. ScrewAttack reached out to Nintendo for comment.
 
We have very little information concerning this project at the moment, but live-action Legend of Zelda is something fans have been craving for years. How do you feel about this? How do you think the story should go?

Don't count the cuccos before the hatch. Remember there was a serious attempt at making a Metroid movie until Nintendo backed-out at the last minute.

It will bomb.

The End.

Oh, yeah, pretty much certainly.

...but I'll still watch it, just in case it turns out to be the good kind of bad.

No. No.

 

Silence all of you.

 

Quiet your faces.

 

I'm betting on this because in some time from now,

 

in the future, when HL3 exists,

 

This will happen and you all will be wrong and I will be right and I will laugh.

I'm hoping for the worst. That way, if it turns out to be pretty meh, then it'll still exceed my expectations.

 

Can't be any worse than this, can it?

I'd actually be ok with this if it was arthouse as fug and focused on mystery, magic, and mysticism with a fantastic fairy tale world and not overly epic CGI special effects and cheesy political plots.

 

Which it won't do, but meh.

The fact that neither Nintendo nor Netflix appear to have said anything about this is kind of weird. Sounds like the original WSJ reporter found a Lucy Looselips that jumped the gun on a twinkle-in-your-pappy's-eye project... that, or they were just making shit up. If there's any truth to this, it probably wasn't supposed to get out at this stage and for good reason--tons of projects start like this, few actually get to production. It's like the great sperm race of content creation.

I see no issue with that bit of animation masterpiece.

I hope you realize I am forever stuck hearing Gilbert Gottfreid going, "Hyaa! Hyoh! HYAAAH!"

Unless Nintendo themselves confirm it, it's nonsense.

Says the one who went crazy over Majora's Mask months before Nintendo confirmed it. :troll:
