Netflix and Nintendo are working together to create a live-action The Legend of Zelda TV series, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.
Someone "familiar with the matter" told WSJ that the series is in early development, and as with most Legend of Zelda games, follows a young boy called Link who must save Princess Zelda and save the Kingdom of Hyrule. Netflix is reportedly describing the show "Game of Thrones for a family audience."
The series is a long way off, with Netflix still looking for a writer, and it could be cancelled before it even gets off the ground, said the source.
Nintendo's protectiveness of its intellectual property means that cross-media adaptations are rare. The only time The Legend of Zelda has been adapted to a non-game format was with short-lived cartoon series in 1989.
