Nintendo announces live-action Zelda movie – but fans wish it was animated

There’s exciting news for Zelda fans as Nintendo announces it’s developing a live-action movie based on the iconic Legend of Zelda game series. The upcoming movie will be produced by Nintendo’s official Fellow and Representative Director, Shigeru Miyamoto, the legendary creator behind the original series.

After the popularity of The Super Mario Bros. Movie earlier this year, Nintendo’s growth into the wider world of entertainment is an exciting move from the company, and with Miyamoto taking the lead on this latest project, the Zelda movie seems equally set for success.

In an official press release, Nintendo announced that Miyamoto will be partnering with Avi Arad of Arad Productions Inc. – Chairman of the studio behind Marvel hits such as ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ and video game movies such as ‘Uncharted’. The film itself is set to be directed by Wes Ball (director of the popular Maze Runner movie franchise) and will be funded 50% by Nintendo and 50% by Sony.
