Back in 2015, there were reports from the Wall Street Journal suggesting a live-action Netflix series based on The Legend of Zelda was in the works. This project was still in the early stages of development at the time and was aiming to be Game of Thrones for a family audience.
While nothing seemingly came of this in the end, a similar but different rumour has now surfaced via news and entertainment website The Wrap. According to the source, Producer Adi Shankar is allegedly in talks to produce a series about The Legend of Zelda. There's no word on how exactly the website has narrowed it down to this series, as Shankar's recent Instagram post reveals he's "working" with an iconic Japanese video game company but makes no mention of the game series:
I can confirm that I am working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series.
Shankar's post goes on to explain how he will announce what the series is next month on 16th November. When the source reached out to Nintendo for comment, a spokesperson for the Japanese company had nothing to say about the topic.
If this does end up being something Zelda or Nintendo related, fear not - Shankar has very much proven himself in recent times as the Executive Producer on Netflix's animated Castlevania series. Whether this latest report citing The Legend of Zelda is linked to the original 2015 live-action Netflix rumours is unknown at this point in time.
