Following the success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Nintendo has announced that it will develop a live-action film of The Legend of Zelda. The film, to be produced by Shigeru Miyamoto and Avi Arad—known for his work on Marvel movies and video game adaptations like Uncharted and the upcoming Borderlands—marks a collaboration between Nintendo and Arad Productions Inc., with Wes Ball set to direct. Financing for the project will be shared, with over 50% provided by Nintendo and the remainder by Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., which will also manage worldwide theatrical distribution.

On X, Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed the news, saying that he has been working on the live-action film of The Legend of Zelda for many years now with Avi Arad. Miyamoto noted that the development of The Legend of Zelda film has officially begun, with Nintendo playing a significant role in the production process, although no release window has yet been announced.
