Production

Warner Bros. Pictures acquired movie rights for the Zelda franchise in 2007 after the successful release of Twilight Princess. For many years, Nintendo had been interested in turning Zelda in a movie series. In June 2010, Warner took pitches from video game writers, comic book writers, screenwriters and directors in how to make a Zelda movie. Mac Walters, writer of the Mass Effect franchise, proposed an eight-hour epic that spanned from Link's childhood to his eventual crowning as King of Hyrule. Similarly, Grant Morrison proposed a story similar to that of Ocarina of Time.

During discussions for Super Mario Bros. in 2011, Neil Gaiman told director J.J. Abrams his idea for the Zelda movie. Impressed by Gaiman's idea, Abrams presented the concept to the studio, who hired Abrams and Gaiman as director and screenwriter respectively.
