Nintendo has finally ended its drought and unofficial ban on making film adaptations of its games. The Super Mario Bros. Movie was a global smash hit at the box office and one of the biggest hits of the year. That pretty much assures there will be sequels and spinoffs for years to come. The Legend of Zelda is another crown jewel of Nintendo’s iconic library, and a recent announcement has confirmed a live-action adaptation is in development. The action-adventure series first debuted on the Family Computer Disk System (or Famicom Disk System) in 1986, and fans in the U.S. got to experience the game for the first time on the original Nintendo Entertainment System or NES when it hit stateside in August 1987, over 35 years ago.
