Report of Netflix's Game of Thrones-style Zelda series 'not based on correct information'

I was so excited for the reported "Game of Thrones for a family audience" Legend of Zelda series that Netflix was producing that I went ahead and wrote up my "dream cast" (SEGA joke) for the series. Looks like my ace tel...

Netflix is reportedly making a live-action television series based on The Legend of Zelda.

The news immediately sent the country, nay the world into mass hysteria. Some folks expressed unfettered glee. Others were upset, their minds drifting back to 1993 with repressed memories of the Super Mario Bros. movie seeping up through the floorboards of their tortured psyches. 

Anyway, let's suppose it's true. Such a production will need a cast. Let's put together another one.

Dream cast: I want these actors for Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda photo
Dream cast: I want these actors for Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda

I'm sure you've heard the bizarre news. Netflix is working on a live-action The Legend of Zelda series that is described as, "Game of Thrones for a family audience," which is kind of like if Breaking Bad was about Peanuts characters in a lemonade stand competition.

I think Netflix is missing a huge opportunity to take J. K. Rowlings' Game of Thrones style--nudity and blood and tits--and present an aging Nintendo fanbase with a gritty re-imagining of the universe, but I'll respect Netflix's direction and cast a Legend of Zelda series where throne ascendancy disputes get solved like the time on Fresh Prince where it turns out Uncle Phil is really good at billiards.

Not everything on television can be mature content for grown ups about dragons and skeletons, after all. 

Here's my dream cast!

Zelda on Netflix looks to be Game of Thrones for the whole family photo
Zelda on Netflix looks to be Game of Thrones for the whole family
by Robert Summa

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a live-action The Legend of Zelda series is currently being developed by Netflix. According to mysterious sources quoted by the Journal, the series is still in its early stages of development and is apparently working closely with Nintendo.

The show is still seeking a writer, so it may be quite a bit of time before we hear a whole lot more about this. The most we know right now is that the series will be based on the traditional Zelda story and is looking to be like Game of Thrones, but for a family audience.

Good evening, teens! Here’s today’s DTOID News update, which I’m turning into a weekly show so we can make more interesting things happen.

Do you have Playstation Plus? Because depending on where you live, you can get a bunch of fun free games next month. Do you like Secret of Mana? Because too bad, the newest game is a F2P mobile game. Are you into Gundam? Well, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn is coming to PS3 this summer. Are you stoked on Razor Scooters and Tony Hawk? Well, both of those things are getting new games, because apparently 2014 is the new 1999. Finally, Pokémon is hitting Netflix, and to celebrate, Nintendo is retiring all online play for the Wii and DS.

Trends of this Generation: Consoles as media centers
by Daniel Starkey

Yesterday, I looked at one of the most recognizable shifts we've seen in the past few years: motion controls. In the next segment for this editorial miniseries, I want to address integrating a number of disparate services into one device that rests comfortably in your living room.

I remember quite some time ago, I would wake up early on Saturdays, play games for a few hours and then just kinda stare at the screen for a bit. I distinctly remember thinking that when I wasn’t using my console to play games, there wasn’t too much else to do with it. While it’s a bit sad that I didn’t have much else to do on Saturday afternoons, in my defense, I grew up in Oklahoma. And there’s NOTHING to do there, but I digress…
