    What do you think the plot for the Warcraft film will be?

    Obviously this is all speculation, since there's no concrete evidence to suggest what the plot or setting might be.
    All we know is who may or may not be starring in the film:
    Paula Patton (close to a deal)
    Colin Farrell
    Paul Dano
    Travis Fimmel (also close to a deal)
    Anson Mount
    Anton Yelchin

    What do you think? Personally, I like to think it should take place around the time of Warcraft, and follow the events of Khadgar and Medivh. Start at the beginning and introduce an audience without the knowledge of the Warcraft mythology with the first details-Sargeras' activites, the First War, the Opening of the Dark Portal.

    But I'd like to know what are your ideas for the film's story? Bear in mind confusion for a first-time audience-so Arthas' story, as great as it is, might leave people confused.

    Whatever the plot, it will no doubt be a continuation of the last 9 years of WoW Alliance Favorism...

    Orcs, goblins, trolls etc will most likely only exist to be slaughtered, and Varian and Jaina will (somehow) be portrayed as heroes, not the villains they really are..

    we know that the plot will revolve around lore before "world of warcraft", personally i think they will do as a first film, either the war of the ancients, or, they will do a film which shows how both horde and alliance came into being, because alot of the lore doesn't make sense to non fans unless u know what each faction is there for, and how it affects each faction.

    Wasn't it already confirmed to be guardian focused?
    You tried too hard and now your post is shit. Never try too hard, the gamble isn't worth it. -Boubouille

    I read a summary of the plot from an internal source - it will be surrounding the opening of the Dark Portal (which may be the title)/First War and will have the characters Medivh, Khadgar (Guardian battles), Lothar, King Lllane, Guldan, Durotan, Garona, etc

    Was a bit disappointed, was hoping it would cover some new aspect of the story we hadn't seen yet

    Not sure what i think.. but i would like it to be the start of the scourge and Arthas turning into the lichking.

    A group of young and talented upstarts from well to do backgrounds bend the rules and get wrapped up in a stirring bit of intrigue with disastrous consequences. The group is left splintered with old friendships frayed. In the end a male character who is an alternate love interest for the only important female role breaks completely with the group and goes rogue. He is shocked and upset that none of his friends side with him and that his rival gets the girl, this only serves to strengthen his resolve.

    I think it will be focused around Medivh and the Dark Portal as the movie is supposedly guardian focused.

    I can never tell if this kinds of posts are serious or not. If so, I would have to greatly disagree. I would imagine it will be told from the alliance point of view, however.

    If this movie turns out to be a generic action/adventure/fantasy movie with cheesy rock music I'm going to be pissed.

    Apparently Guardians all get a special tattoo.

    Lothar, Medivh and Khadgar.

    One of the more recent rumors was that it would essentially be an adaptation of The Last Guardian, with a few changes.

    If the teaser trailer is any reflection on what the final project will be like, we may see some Outland, lots of humans and orcs fighting.

    Especially since the bulk of Arthas' story is restricted to human vs undead, with a tiny bit of Illidan and a handful of blood elves. Like, pretty much no orcs or trolls at all.

    I put my money on The Arthas story. It is the BEST story WOW has.
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    Oh look, a retarded post.

    Anyways, if someone hasn't already said it yet: It's 'confirmed' (for now) that it's going to be centered on Arthas.

    Garrosh's story/character > Arthas' story/character.

    Haha, coming from a guy with all horde toons. The Horde (in particular Orcs) are a major part of every xpac, especially this one...stop complaining.

    its just gotta be the story of Arthas, mainly because he is a human so the audience can emphasise with him at points

    If it is the Last Guardian, I swear I will probably scream like a 13-year old Justin Bieber fan.

    I've said this before, but the Last Guardian novel is definitely one of the best written WoW novels, if not the best. It would work fantastic on screen. We have mystery, we have comedy, and we have (some) action. It provides something the audience can sympathize with (Khadgar killing his former Master and friend). It also provides the opportunity for direct sequels.

    Jesus... just imagining the final scene where the resurrected Medivh returns to Karazhan gives me chills. I would kill to see that scene on the big screen.

    Garrosh's story/character > Arthas' story/character.
    Funny though that he's absolutely correct.
