Nintendo has announced an exciting collaboration with Sony and Marvel producer Avi Arad for a live-action adaptation of The Legend of Zelda. Director Wes Ball, known for Maze Runner and Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, expressed his enthusiasm for taking on this beloved property. Ball believes that Zelda is one of the last “untapped properties” that is ripe for a cinematic treatment and is looking forward to bringing the iconic franchise to the big screen.

Ball revealed that Zelda holds a special place in his heart, comparing its importance to him with that of Star Wars in shaping his childhood. He acknowledges the high expectations associated with adapting such a beloved and storied property and the pressure that comes with it. With his experience handling fan-favorite franchises, Ball is prepared for the “expectation game” that comes with bringing Zelda to life.

The director discussed the importance of staying true to the essence of Zelda and ensuring that the adaptation feels authentic and real. Ball expressed his admiration for the aesthetic of legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and his desire to capture that magic in the live-action adaptation. While there is no release date set for the Zelda movie and casting announcements are pending, fans are eagerly anticipating updates on this exciting project.

As Ball’s Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters, fans can look forward to more updates on the Zelda movie. Additionally, Nintendo is rumored to be working on a new console, potentially the Switch 2, set for release in 2025. With exciting developments on the horizon, both fans of Nintendo and cinephiles have much to anticipate in the coming years. Stay tuned for more updates on the highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of The Legend of Zelda.
