zelda 2

Netflix is said to be working closely with Nintendo on developing a live-action TV series of the long-running 'Zelda' game franchise.

Like the games, it will focus on a boy named Link who must rescue a princess (Zelda) to save a fantasy world called Hyrule. It's said to be like 'Game of Thrones' for a family audience, according to a person familiar with the matter.

We'll have to wait a while before we can start streaming the live-action Link, however. Netflix hasn't even found a writer yet, let alone started casting – though The Verge has some suggestions on that front – so don't expect it this year.

Of course, there's always the chance Netflix or Nintendo will can the project. But let's stay hopeful.

It wouldn't be the first TV outing for 'Zelda'. An animated series aired in 1989, though it only lasted one season.

The first game in the series 'The Legend of Zelda' came out in 1987. Since then, there have been about 20 'Zelda' titles across all manner of Nintendo consoles including the NES, Super NES, Game Boy and 3DS.
