The movie will be co-produced by renowned video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and Avi Arad of the Spider-Man trilogy, with The Maze Runner’s Wes Ball in the director’s chair.
First released in 1986, The Legends of Zelda has become one of Japan’s most successful franchises, alongside Super Mario Bros. With various spin-offs selling millions of copies worldwide, the series has cemented its place as one of the cornerstones of the gaming industry. The latest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, became the fastest-selling Zelda game, selling 10 million copies just three days after its release last May. The game also received five-star reviews from leading publications, including Empire, The Guardian, Metro, Daily Mirror and Radio Times.
However, previous film adaptations of popular video games such as Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter have been panned by critics and fans alike. Therefore, the upcoming Legend of Zelda action movie will do its best to please fans of the series. Despite this challenge, the collaboration between Nintendo and Sony Pictures promises to bring a fresh perspective to the beloved franchise.
The cast and actors are unknown
While no announcement has yet been made about the film’s cast or plot, fans can rest assured that the production team is a talented one.
