    Just like Titan, it's quickly looking to be vaporware. How is it that something that is CGI animated takes 3 years to make? Pixar pumps out what, 8 animated films a year?

    Sorry but as much of a fan of WoW that I am I would have seen Star Wars instead.

    I would also have delayed it, or advance the date, same day as Star Wars VII? Nope!

    Warcraft movie does not equal Pixar movie. It is far more detailed, and photo realistic. I think they have even mentioned that they want to use Avatar level motion capture, and rival or outshine LotR movies. Pixar, by the way, does maybe 2 movies at best a year, and when they started, it was barely one every two years. Star Wars has historically taken three years between each movie, and that is with Lucas knowing in his head the basic outline and how he wants it to look for years. I am not at all surprised that they want to take two years to make this movie. Also, The Hobbit movie became two movies, then three movies, and each new movie still is taking a year to put out, even with having a lot of the action already shot, and just waiting on the CGI.

    Quality over Quantity, Pixar themselves have proven that. All there best movies were made when they didn't make 2 movies a year.

    Yeah this has absolutely nothing NOTHING to do with star wars coming out at the same time on the original release date. Maybe they have production delays, but realistically they would be committing economic SUICIDE by releasing it the same week as the new star wars movie.

    It makes sense,a good move.

    Why the fuck would you even announce a release date at this point? 2016? We're only at the end of 2013 right now. Ridiculous. Just as dumb as Star Wars.

    And this is worst thing for me - it would be so much better if Blizzard would make their own movie in full GCI! But instead we will probably get another Hobbit (movie which is only good when you do not read book - so in case of WoW it will be good movie if you did not play games and read books).

    Best news I've heard all day. Going up against Star Wars was insanity. March is a quiet time of year for big fantasy films and it will have some time to itself.

    Ha, have they just given up on the idea that people will show up to watch that crap? 2015 was 5 years too late for the movie, now they are going for 6

    Like most people assert, and I also believe, Its because of Star Wars VII. Oh well, I'm not worried about it. I just want the movie to be good. :O

    I don't care so much that it's being delayed. I would rather it be the best it can be rather than be rushed. And as for it releasing the same day as Star Wars, its more than 2 years away, things can change and honestly you don't have to see every movie on opening day or just one a year or something.

    I don't believe they will ever release the movie the delay is not 3years but 10 years. So they will still playing with us .

    They actually postponed it because Chris Metzen has to have vocal reconstructive surgery so that he will be able to permanently have his orc voice. Not to mention it's going to take a lot of time to film with Chris Metzen playing 20 different characters and dubbing him in as all of the extras. It's going to be a busy 2 years for him!
