Live Action Zelda Series on Netflix May Not be Happening

Did Nintendo just shut down the idea of Netflix creating a live action Zelda series?

Not too long ago The Wall Street Journal posted an article about Nintendo partnering up with Netflix to bring a live-action Zelda series to the online streaming platform. This news caused a huge eruption of excitement and skepticism across the internet. While many were excited, quite a few brought up the questions such as, "Who would they cast?" and "Link never speaks, how would a writer narrate his character?"

Well, it looks like Time might have taken the idea of a Zelda series coming to Netflix off the table. In a recent article published they talked to Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, who had a comment on the subject:

"As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information."

This statement can pretty much confirm that Netflix won't be hosting the next Zelda show or film. However, this does leave the opportunity open that they could be working on something with someone to bring one of their IPs to a new format.
