Those viral Netflix Zelda posters have sent fans into a frenzy

Sadly, Emma Watson will not feature in the title role in a Netflix Zelda adaptation. Nor will Tom Holland star as Link. In fact, the Netflix Zelda series doesn't even exist, although we wish it did. And once again, it's an AI art generator that's to blame for the confusion.

Gamers went wild when a full set of promotional posters emerged for a Netflix adaptation of Nintendo's Zelda franchise. They look superb, the cast is outstanding and Netflix has been rumoured to be working on a Zelda adaptation before, so it sounded feasible. Alas, there was just one problem. The posters were created by a fan using an AI image generator (AI is responsible for so much these days. See our guide to how to use DALL-E 2 to learn how it works).
