[Theory] The Path of the ShaoHao movies are forshadowing
Something just occured to me. The Path of ShaoHao might sound like some very fun video's. But actually it might be the forshadowing for the burning legion invasion.
let's look at what happened so far :
Chapter one : Doubt
Chapter two : Despair
Chapter Three : Fear
These are 3 of the many sha we have defeated so far and so did Shaohao and he is now ready to look unto the next event The Burning Legion. Thus, first we get our Pandarian adventures to then see the Burning Legion and us assembling an army.
I think besides the ShaoHao video's being very fun that they might just be some foreshadowing on what to come. After Pandaria and the Sha come the Burning Legion.
It is absolutely foreshadowing the Legion invasion. Although foreshadow might be too soft a term. The entire adventure was prompted by visions Shaohao was told of the Legion's arrival - this is made pretty clear in the prologue video.
Think you missed the point where the story takes place 10,000 years ago in the timeline and every episode concern a certain burden the emperor has to face. The burning legion is a setting, but not the point. I tend to see many posts saying "it's illidan!" in the fear episode. How absurd..
This story of Shao-Hao happened 10,000 years ago. The Burning Legion attack that it's talking about already happened in lore.
So no, this isn't foreshadowing anything, just telling a story from the past.

It's not the point it was 10.000 years ago though. There is a -reason- they have decided to turn this story into machinima and not some other story and history might be repeating itself now we are battling the same sha as ShaoHao did.
Well Wrathion hint towards a burning legion expansion, but , really. We all know it's coming someday.
The heroes of azeroth did not overcome their emotions, they just killed it and destroyed pandaria.
They turned this story because it's the main theme of the expansion, and it's a great teaser for patch 5.4
