Are you excited for a movie about World of Warcraft
? Because the Warcraft movie won't be about that, exactly; it's focused on the backstory
of World of Warcraft
, specifically how the First War got started before the first Warcraft
game. At SDCC
, some new details were revealed about the title
, which is currently set for release in theaters in March of 2016.
The story will focus on both sides of the conflict, with Durotan being the central character of the orcish side and Anduin Lothar taking up the protagonist mantle on the human side. A teaser trailer was also shown with a blend of both CGI and live effects, although the trailer has not yet been released to the general public. Director Duncan Jones stressed that he wants the film to be accessible to everyone and not just existing fans of the fanchise; it'll be a couple more years until fans can see how well that goal was accomplished
