News: Legend of Zelda on Netflix

If you haven't heard, Zelda is on Netflix! Link to the scoop at the end.

To say that I am looking forward to a Netflix produced Zelda TV series is an understatement:
This is the dream.
Since the 1993 Mario disaster, Nintendo has been awfully protective of their properties, even going so far as to state that they would NEVER license Zelda.

There were some rumors a few months back that Nintendo may be going the route of Marvel in making their own cinematic studio, but apparently their research into this undertaking meant they decided to go ahead with the licensing.

Netflix is poised to be, if they aren't already, on top of the TV/home movie market along with HBO, and Zelda can help them get there. A Netflix representative has said they want this to be like Game of Thrones but family-friendly.

If it can capture a fraction of the heart of Zelda and the spectacle of what Game of Thrones is, then this could be the best show ever.

Here's hoping!
