Live Action Legend of Zelda Show is in the Making at Netflix
Alright folks, this one is specially for the gamers out there. If you happen to own a console by Nintendo, you must have played at least one Zelda game; in fact, there is a great chance that you are one of the millions of fans of the game series.
Apparently, the love that fans have given to the franchise has given confidence to Netflix that they can pull off a live action series based on the Legend of Zelda universe.
According to unconfirmed reports that are circling the internet as we speak, they are already in the early phase of the development.
If you are a fan, you would probably know what the storyline is going to revolve around, but let me enlighten you if you are new. The live action Legend of Zelda series is going to revolve around the protagonist of the series, Link who will be doing what he does best i.e. saving Princess Zelda.
Obviously, the whole show is going to be based in the fictional universe of Hyrule.
There have been so many videogames based on everything in the franchise that it is hard to believe people wouldn’t know about Link, Zelda or Hyrule. In case you have still missed out, this show is going to bring whole new extravaganza to your life.
There are other bits of information too, Netflix is currently looking for writers who will take on the charge of creating the whole storyline.
Talking of, all the previous entries in the franchise have revolved around things like magic and swords but don’t think it is going to feel like Lord of the Rings. That is something Netflix is clearly swerving away from; they say that the live action Legend of Zelda show is going to be a Game of Thrones for the family and the light hearted.
How Nintendo is taking part in the whole venture is something we are still to figure out. Moreover, Netflix is also zip-lipped about it so far.
Would you be interested in watching the show if it is aired?
