Netflix is set to add The Legend of Zelda to its slate of original content.

If you grow up in the 80’s or 90’s it unlikely you have not heard of the Nintendo Game ‘Zelda’, which was played by many a child on their NES or SNES as the consoles were called.

Netflix has begun developing a live action adaptation of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA. The Game remains one of Nintendo’s flagship franchises along with Super Mario Bros. The Legend of Zelda has always had a very cinematic flair to it, especially in recent games, and would easily share audiences with fans of THE LORD OF THE RINGS and GAME OF THRONES, if Tomb Raider can find an audience then Zelda should breeze through.

The game follows a young boy turned warrior named Link who must save Princess Zelda from the clutches of the evil villain Ganon. Each game has had slight variations, but the central theme of good versus evil has always been shown using the concept of the Triforce. While a feature film could easily be made, a long form series would be a huge success if given the right budget and talent.

The story was reported by the Wall Street Journal and has stated that although the project is in the development stage, don’t expect to see anything on the streaming service for a couple of years.
