Legend of Zelda Logo

Showrunner

Note: This is by far the hardest role to fill simply because, there’s no blueprint. No video game I can pop in and look at a character. So I tried to think of people who could do a family friendly Game of Thrones. A balance of rousing action, the fantastic, but with heart and morals. I admit, most of these are stretches.

If you want a family friendly Game of Thrones, who better than the guys who make Game of Thrones? Admitteldy, it’s a long shot and each of them are going to go onto bigger and better things after Thrones ends but imagine them tackling the world of Hyrule?

Dave Filoni

Filoni is Lucasfilm’s go-to-guy when it comes to TV animation. He’s basically the main voice behind The Clone Wars and Rebels, two shows that take a very popular intellectual property and present them to a family friendly audience in an action packed way adults can enjoy too.

Michael Hirst

I don’t watch Vikings, but everything I heard about it is that Michael Hirst is doing Game of Thrones worthy work on the show. It’s is obviously more adult and violent than Zelda would be, as was his previous show The Tudors, but both exhibit total command of story in a larger-than-live universe.

Guillermo del Toro

If Guillermo del Toro wasn’t a producer on The Strain, I wouldn’t put him here. But he is, so I am, and it’ll never happen but this is my wishlist and the idea of a Guillermo del Toro Hyrule gives me goosebumps.

Bruce Straley

Straley isn’t well-known to most movie watchers, but video game fans know him as one of the main voices behind The Last of Us and Uncharted games. He’s never worked on TV or in the movie but I wanted to throw in at least one video game guy here. Someone who grew up in that industry and could bring those unique sensibilities across mediums.

Obviously, these are just suggestions. Some fun, some real, who is on your own Legend Of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist?
