It’s finally happening after years of gaming. The World of Warcraft movie is coming and the first trailer has been shown. While we already knew the movie was being made it isn’t really official (to me anyway) until I see a trailer.
This trailer has a very “first trailer” feel to it and is vague on the details. However, we see the main points of the story that’s going to be playing out. While fans of the games and books will already know this, here is a exert from the Warcraft Movie website:
“The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.”
The film will be starting pretty much at the beginning of the gaming lore. While I’m sure a few things will be tweaked to fit the medium, so far it looks to be true to form enough.
Warcraft will release in theaters (all of them) on June 10th.
