One of gaming’s best known and most popular franchises may be emerging into a new realm in the coming years. As reported by the Wall Street Journal earlier today, Netflix is currently eyeing The Legend of Zelda series for a live action adaptation.
Though details remain scarce, a few facts have emerged at this early stage. First of all, the proposed adaptation would come in the form of an ongoing series rather than a film. Next, as stated above, it’s thought that this series would be in the live action vein, rather than an animated series. As this would mark the first time that the Zelda series has ever been adapted in this manner, and only its second adaptation ever, this is truly big news.
While not much else can be gleaned from the various stories popping up on the net, the only other fact that is emerging on a recurring basis concerns the fact that Netflix is seeking a lead writer for the series. Obviously, any future details will be reported as they are revealed.
