BlizzCon: About WarCraft Movie
Shane Blume / 4 years ago
Blizzard has announced that they finally have a release date for the film, and it is believed to be 18 December 2015. Though they have not even started filming. They also spoke a little on the idea of the film being about Orcs vs Humans and the First Contact: Lothar and Durotan.
My first thought when I heard about Warcraft the movie, I pictured a very cartoony movie, but this movie will not be cartoony at all, it will be photo-realistic. Using a half human cast while the other half will be computer generated. They are planning to do some really great things with this film. We wont see it for at least another two years.
It is unclear about what parts of Azeroth we will be seeing. We will see some really fine details, and everything will look and feel real. We will see different zones and different cities. Even if you don’t know anything about Warcraft you will be able to watch and enjoy the film, but if you are a fan, you will notice plenty of things that will match up very well with the games.
As much as you may feel each character within the world plays a vital role, the most important role is the world itself. We will see a number of the different races from both the Horde and the Alliance.
I would love to see the lore and how it plays out giving us a history of the game, the instances and even the zones of Azeroth. Blizzard doesn’t seem to be taking an approach of multiple feature films, but rather one film that covers everything. I feel that Blizzard could easily make a film on each zone and each city as well as the different instances. Giving us a ton of history and lore of Azeroth.
I felt the panel was extremely frustrating that they didn’t want to unveil very much about the film, so we will just need to wait until the movie moves further along in production.
