Back in 2015, there was a rumor that there would be a series based on the videogame The Legend of Zelda coming to Netflix in the vein of Game of Thrones. We haven't heard much about that since then. However, the rumor mill has started spinning again regarding The Legend of Zelda, this time saying that Adi Shankar, one of the producers who brought the videogame property Castlevania to Netflix recently in animated form, is working on a Zelda series.
Shankar did not confirm that he was working on The Legend of Zelda, but he did tease via his Instagram that he was:
"… working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series"
He also said that what he was working on would be revealed on November 16 at 1pm. So we guess we'll find out if it is Zelda then or not and hopefully if it will be animated or live-action. Perhaps Pac-Man is due for a live-action series…

The Legend of Zelda started life as a video game on the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1986. There have been over a dozen games in the main series, the most recent being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and Switch in 2017. The games usually focus on the adventurer Link, somehow aiding the Princess Zelda in rescuing the land of Hyrule from the evil Ganon, often using the mysterious relic the Triforce. The game has been adapted into several manga, and also spawned a (bad) American animated TV series in 1989. Animated Link and Zelda also appeared in the Captain N: The Game Master animated series.
