One of the more unexpected rumors in the past year or so was that of a live-action TV series in the works at Netflix based on the popular Nintendo video game franchise “The Legend of Zelda”. The news was quickly shot down by none other than Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata himself who said it was not based on current facts.
Today though, Season Zero reports that the project has resurfaced again – this time being developed as a potential pilot for Amazon. It adds that if the project is to go ahead, it will shoot in August in New York and Savannah, Georgia.
What the plot of such a potential series could be is unclear at this point, though will likely involve Link traveling across Hyrule to rescue Princess Zelda.
If the report is true, the project would join the batch of other high profile pilots in the works at the service that will be released and voted on by consumers in early 2016. Others include Guillermo del Toro’s steampunk fantasy “Carnival Row”, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “Casanova,” David E. Kelley’s legal drama “Trial,” Shane Black’s violent western “Edge,” and potentially Bryan Cranston and David Shore’s “Sneaky Pete”.
