Patcay.com – In a groundbreaking move, Nintendo and Sony have joined forces to create a live-action film adaptation of the legendary game, Legend of Zelda. This decision was officially announced through Nintendo’s investor post.
The production of this film will be entrusted to Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo and Avi Arad, Chairman of Arad Production, as producers. Avi Arad himself has produced several blockbuster films, including Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland.

Interestingly, Sony Pictures Entertainment will be responsible for the distribution of the Legend of Zelda film while also participating in the production financing alongside Nintendo.

According to reports, Derek Connoly, the screenwriter of Jurassic World, will be the mastermind behind the story that will unfold in this film. Although this announcement has just been made, it appears that the Zelda film project has been in the works for several years.
It’s worth noting that, unlike the animated approach taken with the Mario film, Legend of Zelda will provide a live-action experience, with characters portrayed by real actors. Although there is no information yet regarding the specific storyline chosen for adaptation, the presence of this adaptation brings joy to dedicated Legend of Zelda fans.
Not only that, but Nintendo has also made waves in the market by releasing its latest product, Nintendo Switch OLED: Mario Red. This special edition comes in the iconic red color associated with the character Mario. The dock even features Mario’s silhouette and a hidden coin. This exclusive design is only applied to the OLED model, which is the flagship of the company.
