Now this is a historical moment for gaming: Shigeru Miyamoto himself confirmed Nintendo is working on a live action adaptation of The Legend of Zelda.

Arguably the most famous Nintendo game franchise of all time, or at least tied with Mario, the Legend of Zelda was one game whose movie adaptation made a lot of sense but, for some reason, that never happened.

Now, Miyamoto himself took to X/Twitter to announce that himself and Nintendo have been working for years on this.

Is The Legend of Zelda movie happening for real?

Indeed it is.

“This is Miyamoto. I have been working on the live-action film of The Legend of Zelda for many years now with Avi Arad-san, who has produced many mega hit films,” wrote Miyamoto on Nintendo’s wall.

In a follow-up tweet, the legendary game designer said that he has personally asked Avi-san to produce the movie with him, and that “Nintendo itself is heavily involved in the production. It will take time until its completion, but I hope you look forward to seeing it.

He might not be a household name, but the director of The Legend of Zelda movie has already brought us the Maze Runner trilogy.

Wes Ball is confirmed to direct The Legend of Zelda, and he is also attached to the upcoming  Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

“By producing visual contents of Nintendo IP by itself, Nintendo is creating new opportunities to have people from around the world to access the world of entertainment which Nintendo has built, through different means apart from its dedicated game consoles,” the company wrote in the press release announcing the Zelda movie.
