It’s official now, the Warcraft Movie is coming, announced at BlizzCon, we didn’t get a trailer or casting but what we did get was the idea of the story and some part of what the world is going to look like. Below are some pictures which I got from IGN, so they are watermarked. I wasn’t able to get my own off the stream yet due to errors it keeps giving me.
In the meantime from all I’ve read, this movie is going to be really good, we’re going to get a sort of Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings, to be honest with you. I don’t think we’ll see anything new we haven’t seen before in terms of CGI but the story is what’s going to sell this movie. Base off the lore of Warcraft it has to have an amazing story.
One of the things I’m hoping for is that they cast some unknowns in the roles so that we don’t get some big name actor on the film putting his input into the characters and story and ruining it. This story as to be controlled by the studio and I mean Blizzard. They are the only people who really have control and if they lose it the movie itself will be lost. As it’s been proven with other video game movies, that just sell the rights off and don’t really say much about it, the film’s end up being really crappy.
Here you can see the concept art from areas including Draenor, Dalaran, Stormwind, and Ironforge. This is going to be a movie I’m going to be following and hopefully, it turns out to be amazing because, to be honest, it needs to have the story and try to do something we haven’t seen on the big screen before.
