UPROXX – The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on “Zelda,” about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule, said a person familiar with the matter. As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience, this person said.
Yes, yes, yes, yes and YES! The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is hands down the greatest video game ever created. The fact they haven’t made a series/movie about it yet is a crime against humanity. There is no reason why it has taken this long. The action is there, plot is perfect, the characters are great. Plus Hyrule is a Jewish enough sounding of a name to make Hollywood happy. Make it happen, baby.
The only thing I’m concerned about is it not living up to expectations. There are so many memories that I couldn’t put at risk of being tainted. I had a better relationship with Epona than I did with my own family. I considered playing the Ocarina an actual musical feat. Finally defeating Shadow Link in the Water Temple is legitimately top 5 moments of my childhood. One of the best battles in video game history. So many cherished moments. Also, the Water Temple can go straight to fucking hell. There were more walls punched and cats thrown because of that maze of watered down dick than I can fathom.
