The popular video game The Legend of Zelda is coming back in a new live-action movie.

Nintendo confirms production

Famed Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto took to the gaming company’s X (formerly Twitter) page on Tuesday to announce that development on a live-action Legend of Zelda movie has officially begun.

“For years,” Miyamoto wrote, “I have been working on a live-action Legend of Zelda movie.” We have now officially begun development on the movie, and Nintendo itself will be heavily involved in the production. The movie will take some time to complete, but I hope you’re looking forward to seeing it.

Avi Arad, a veteran filmmaker who has produced several successful comic book movie franchises, including several Spider-Man movies as well as the Iron Man and X-Men movies, will be co-producing the live-action Zelda action movie with Shigeru Miyamoto. According to the official plot synopsis, the classic Zelda video game was first released by Nintendo in 1986 and tells the story of hero Link, who must defeat Ganon, the pig monster, on his journey to save Zelda, Princess of Hellaaroo. At least 20 new versions of the original game have been released over the past 38 years, with the most recent being The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which came out this past May.

Shigeru Miyamoto’s Legacy

Since the late 1970s, Shigeru Miyamoto has developed a series of iconic Nintendo video game franchises. In addition to Zelda, Miyamoto is also known for creating the Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. franchises.

He is also the producer of this year’s Super Mario Bros. movie featuring the voice of Chris Pratt, which was a huge box office success, becoming the tenth animated movie in history to top $1 billion at the box office.

Expectations for the live-action movie

With Shigeru Miyamoto and Arad’s involvement and Bauer’s direction, the live-action Legend of Zelda movie is expected to be a huge success.
