Rumor: Adi Shankar Developing A ‘Legend of Zelda’ Series
The popularity and thematic of some video game franchises are considered as ideal for taking them to other media, such as movies and TV series or current digital services. Recently, the Castlevania series created by Adi Shankar for Netflix presented its second season and everything indicates that the next series that will receive this treatment by the creative will be one of the most important in the history of the industry: The Legend of Zelda.
A few moments ago, The Wrap reported an Adi Shankar publication on its official Instagram profile in which it confirmed that the executive is working with an “iconic” video game company in Japan to adopt one of its most important franchises in a TV series.
At the same time, the creative revealed that it will be on November 16 when he announces what the project is about and that will be that day when he reveals the name of the company and the IP with which he is working. However, the site that gave the exclusive reported that the series that is in the hands of Shankar is The Legend of Zelda, assuming that this will be the announcement scheduled for the date indicated by the creative.
