Video game shows and movies have built-in followings that can sometimes lead to massive ratings numbers. And, if one is executed properly, it can be a windfall for the studio behind the property.  Zelda, one of the greatest games of all-time, has yet to have a live-action film or show adaptation.  However, one Marvel star is ready to make that a reality.

Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson, an avid gamer, has previously expressed interest in playing Zelda, the princess, in an adaptation for Netflix. According to a report, Larson would also like, “to develop her own spinoff show centered around Hyrule’s monarch-to-be. Presumably, such an offshoot would be set in the same continuity as that of Netflix’s Legend of Zelda movie, which itself is said to be inspired by the events of Twilight Princess and Breath of the Wild.”

Rumors of a Legend of Zelda live-action project first came to light in 2015 after the Wall Street Journal reported that Nintendo and Netflix are collaborating on a Game of Thrones type of show for a “family audience.” Nintendo, however, denied the story, and nothing concrete about the production have come out since.

Five years later, new rumors surfaced that the live-action production is back in contention. Nintendo wants a big-screen release for 2022, but a Netflix alternative is also not far off.

According to What’s On Netflix, a Legend of Zelda animated series is also in consideration with Netflix targeting a three-season release. The first season will cover The Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. Season 2 will consist of Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening and A Link Between Worlds. The final season will cover Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks.

  1. Making a series based on the Legend of Zelda is already a controversial topic that many people are against. As an avid is that a fan I’d be willing to give the show I shot. However if Brie Larson had anything to do with it then I would instantly lose interest. That would be the worst decision they could possibly make. I know these are just rumors but nothing is set in stone but I am personally adamantly against that and I would not support it.

  2. No. She is a terrible actress unless she has a stupidly good director and even then its rare anyone can get a decent performance out of her. Even that Oscar movie of hers was boring.

    The west will ruin a zelda show/movie. I’ve already seen reporters saying zelda is a harmful stereotype for us women. So leave making a show or movie to Japan if we get one. Preferable left to kyoto animation who make the most amazing pieces. A good anime is what we need. Not some western crap where some idiot comes in trying to fix what we love.

  3. Brie Larson looks like Beedle more than Zelda..I say yes to the series, but no to casting her as Princess Zelda. Also, isn’t she a feminist? Why would she want to be a damsel in distress?
