Netflix really knows what properties and stories would make amazing television stories. They have been on a rapid road to developing a continually rising amount of original shows that have, for the most part, been really good. Starting this April they have Marvel’s Daredevil kicking off the first individual series of The Defenders and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which is created by Tina Fey. Now Netflix is targeting the rich stories of video games and is attempting to develop a live action series based around The Legend of Zelda.
Zelda is one of the most historic and best game franchises to ever be created and has a plethora of deep stories that could easily come together for a great television show. The show is still in the very, very early stages of development and seeking out a writer for the project and Netflix is working closely with Nintendo to make sure they please the company that created the game and holds it’s rights.
To see a live action Legend of Zelda show would be pretty fantastic if they an do it properly with great writing and a well put together cast. This project could die at any moment if either party involved feels like it is too much work, but lots of people would want to see this happen!
