Warcraft Movie Tweets
Duncan Jones, the director of the Warcraft Movie, has answered questions about the movie and shared his vision of what Part 2 and 3 could have been. Note that even though the Warcraft Movie has the highest grossing world wide, there haven't been any announcements that the sequels may happen.

Duncan Jones: Thank you Kevin. We’d done the hard work. It’s a pity we couldn’t build on that.

Tweet: Can I ask, had you planned out the story for a trilogy of films (or more perhaps)?
Duncan Jones: 3 films. Part 2 would have been Go’el/Thrall as a young orc slave in Blackmoore’s gladiator camp. Here he meets & befriends a Tauren who tells him of another land to the west where his people come from, & where he might find allies & maybe a new home...
Duncan Jones: three, the gathering horde army and freeing of orcs around the Eastern kingdom before a dangerous trip across the sea to Kalimdor, & the founding of the 1st Azerothian city of Orgrimmar. Basically the trilogy was the fulfilling of Durotan’s promise to give his people a new home.

Tweet: Sounds truly great. Certainly epic. A shame we won't see them.
Duncan Jones: Yeah... it would have been something special.

Tweet: Do you think that some sort of sequel to your movie will be made? Shame that you won't continue this marvelous vision within the Warcraft universe.
Duncan Jones: I have no idea, and no one i worked with on the film even works at Blizzard anymore.

Tweet: Despite all that happened. I'm glad that it was made and to have seen it. I liked the details and fun little things in there as well. Plus it became one of the highest-grossing video game movies world-wide. (even though some expected more from it)
Duncan Jones: THE highest grossing world wide.

Small World of Warcraft Now Available for Pre-purchase

Blizzard Entertainment is excited to announce their first collaboration with Days of Wonder by introducing Small World® of Warcraft®, a new board game combining the Small World® game mechanics with Blizzard’s celebrated Warcraft® universe.

Small World of Warcraft is set on the fantasy world of Azeroth, where the races of the Alliance and the Horde—including Orcs, Dwarves, Trolls, and Worgen— clash in a world-consuming conflict.

In Small World of Warcraft, players choose combinations of special powers and races from the Warcraft universe, such as Portal Mage Pandarens or Herbalist Goblins, and vie for control of Azeroth. To help them achieve dominance, players will occupy legendary terrains and seek control of powerful artifacts. However, all empires must eventually fall, so players will need to be ready to put an overextended race into a state of “decline” and lead a new one to rule Azeroth.

Blizzard and Days of Wonder worked closely to create a game that seamlessly brings together both universes. Small World of Warcraft features a variety of new and exclusive artwork that captures the feel of the colorful and vibrant Warcraft universe, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to the millions of WoW® players around the world who’ve explored the far reaches of Azeroth.

To learn more about the game, please visit the dedicated website.

The game is now available for pre-purchase at a selection of partners:

    I dont agree that most of the supposedly movies about the rise of the orc

    Maybe tell in short then talk about warcraft 3 then the story of arthas

    Should've adapted the Scourge of Lordaeron storyline into a movie instead, ending with Arthas killing his father. Would've allowed for slow world building rather than trying to get people understand the entire world in a few minutes, rapid firing things that HAVE to happen and barely giving characterization. Should've saved the 1st and 2nd war for either later "prequel" movies or simply referenced the conflicts in later movies

    WOW! I'm glad those were never made, Jesus Christ, what a pile of garbage that would have been.

    I know right? It's a ridiculous premise. It would actually be the equivalent of a Maian or Aztec person somehow finding his way to Europe in the 1300's or 1400's before the new continent was discovered in 1492. That is how ludicrous that script would be.

    It would have made a lot more sense to start with a human story (with a better cast, honestly who casted the human potatoes in the movie?) like Arthas and the Scourge, and work it as a trilogy. And only then, upon success of said trilogy, would you start messing around with the massive undertaking that is the odyssey of the orcs.

    The problem with Duncan, was that he made way too many changes to the canon lore, there is a reason why it works well in the books, since it was written by an actual writer. Christie Golden is actually really good.
