A report on the Wall Street Journal states Netflix and Nintendo are in the early stages of developing a live-action The Legend of Zelda series.

This is according to a source likening it to “Game of Thrones for a family audience.”

At present, it’s said the show is looking for a writer and WSJ states there’s also the possibility possible of Netflix or Nintendo killing the project “before it gets off the ground.”

When reached for comment by WSJ, a spokesperson for Netflix declined to comment and a Nintendo representative has yet to respond to the report.
