It seems like every video game under the sun right now is being turned into a television series, animation or film. Recently, there have been rumours about a Diablo Netflix series and just yesterday we heard a supposed Legend of Zelda series could be in the works.
Ubisoft is now also apparently working on a script for a live-action television show based on its role-playing platform game Child of Light – which was only recently re-released on the Nintendo Switch. According to Variety, the adaption is a product of the company’s inaugural Women’s Film and Television Fellowship.
Writer Tasha Huo – who was appointed because her script was “on point” – is currently responsible for the Child of Light adaptation and is reportedly a long-time fan of the game. The plan is to recreate the playable fairytale with a strong female heroine in live-action form.
We love that the game centers around Aurora discovering strength… I love video games and I’m passionate about them, but you want people who have never heard of these games to fall in love with them.
