    "Well excuuuuuuuuuuuuse me, princess!"

    This could be pretty cringey.
    Maybe it will look like that mock up Zelda movie trailer from a few years back.

    So in other words: nothing like Game of thrones. :P

    In all seriousness: whomever thought up this comparison didn't know either series, and probably neither. Game of thrones has all these different parties where pretty much everyone has their own agenda. In Zelda, the whole thing boils down to "good vs evil" so much it's almost a cliché. Tom Bombadildo's breakdown is pretty much spot on (and even then, I wonder what that "family fun" part is...shots of people riding horses, perhaps?).

    So the original source for this was the wall street journal, are they typically considered to be reliable?
    Because reading their article, the only piece of information that they have is that it is in the pre-planning stage at netflix.
    No indication of any source and the article seems to have been whipped up in 5 seconds.
    The writer of this article didn't even bother to do any research on what Zelda is, by the sounds of it they just asked their friend what it is and wrote it down.
    I'll just believe it when it's announced.

    Still waiting on a conformation for that animated Mario movie. I'm kinda hoping both these things become a reality.

    We've gotten a taste of a live action Mario movie and an animated Zelda TV series. When are we going to get the animated Mario movie and the live action Zelda series (aka How it should have been all along)?

    Being fair, they don't have to follow the plot of any past game, to those thinking this will be an oot or tp based show.
    It could be an original plot based in the zelda universe. Hell skyward sword was pretty much an anime, so I don't see a reason why this couldn't work as long as Nintendo and netflix can agree on ideas and as long as Nintendo doesn't child it down too much.
    Personally I have high hopes for this show. It needs to right the wrong of the american bastardization that came in cartoon format.

    I wish it was a anime in style similar to Attack on Titan & Berserk rather than a live-action

    I'm not going to tell you but just fucking leave the past in the past and move on.

    Link needs a proper voice than "HAYAAH" which is annoying as it is.

    The Link talking thing is going to be very hard to deal with.
    In the games he doesn't talk, yet he's in a world full of people who do talk that don't draw any attention to the fact that he doesn't talk.
    How would you manage to pull that off in a live action series?
    Imagine how weird it would be to see that side-quest from skyward sword where the shopkeeper would always think Link is flirting with her.

    Dammit, you guys! I wanted to say that!

    Hopefully this will be true to the games and not be cheesy. I expect it to be darker and more aimed at adults who grew up playing the series but we shall see...

    Damnit! I was really hoping for Disney Channel's The Legend of Zelda, starring Zac Efron as Link, the Sprouse twins as young Link, and Ashley Tisdale as Zelda! And guest starring Sora from Kingdom Hearts! :angry:
