Are you ready for a Game of Thrones-type series that the whole family can enjoy? That's Netflix's intentions with its latest original series. The streaming service is currently moving forward with a live-action adaptation of the popular video game franchise The Legend of Zelda. The show is now in the very early stages of development.

Netflix is reportedly working closely with Nintendo, the Japanese game company that has successfully launched more than 20 Zelda games since the original debuted in 1987. Nintendo is notoriously very protective of its various properties, and has allowed few adaptations over the years. The Legend of Zelda animated series did debut in 1989, and only aired for one season. They did allow one feature film to be made based on their titles, 1993's Super Mario Bros. starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo, which proved to be a big bomb for Disney's Buena Vista Pictures.

Netflix is currently seeking a writer for The Legend of Zelda, and it will be a while before the show goes into production. There is also the possibility that either Nintendo or Netflix could kill the series before it ever goes before cameras. Neither Netflix nor Nintendo could be reached for comment.
