    I hope it starts with a young Arthas being trained by Uther and ends with a war on Icecrown Citadel where everyone dies, except for Tirion Fordring and a rag tag group of raiders. When Arthas dies there's ties into the Shadowlands lore to boost sales and close the Uther/Arthas storyline.

    I just hope they do it better. The movie sucked big time. I mean seriously, they tried to tell like 5 different stories all at once. It was hard to follow any one story and get a real sense of wtf was going on. And thats as someone who has played the games and knows the lore. They need to slow the pace and seriously look at following 1 character, Maybe 2, and flesh out the story.

    1: That moment, when Garona killed Laine because, he ask her to do it in name of peace. Bullshit when Gul'Dan was still around.
    2: Stormwind should be in ruins, instead still was fine. If this was first war, very poorly captured.
    3: If i good recall, actually Frostwolf clan drinked Mannoroth's blood, but later they regret it and opposed Gul'Dan. So Blackhand exiled them, yet Gul'Dan sended assasins to deal with them. Well here i'm in middle...
    4: Also if i good remember, Medivh wasn't used fel magic right? He was only possesed by Sargeras but still was using arcane? Unless opening Dark Portal required fel from Medivh in MU right?
    5: Also another point, Dark Portal. Another thing what was very poorly captured. Unless in first game which i never played, was builded on Azeroth side.
    The Frostwolves neve drank the blood, which is why they were exiled. We don't know what sort of magic Medivh used, but seeing as he cursed Khadgar, it's likely that he used fel. And the Dark Portal was, indeed, build on the Azeroth side - AND - the Draenor side.

    Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann

    To make certain, the film hits diversity quota, Thrarthas' one true love will be brown Jaiggra Proudmoore, uncorrupted half orc, half human. In this version, her father Daelin Proudmoore went to Outland, did the attrocious deeds in the name of colonizing the savage lands, and bringing civilisation to the backward orcish society. Side product of all that was Jaiggra. When she was shipped to Dalaran for higher education. Instead of learning about the arcane, she explored the shamanistic rituals while studying in Dalaran. She learnt what monster her father really was, and now is trying to atone for his sins by bringing him down, and burning down everything he worked his whole life to accomplish. She's also really a female caught in male's body. Something the spirits told her, was a punishment for the sins of her racist father.

    If they actually wanted to do it justice, they would make it a series There is too much that put into a 2 hr film. (first movie showed that).

    Hell, if they did what they are doing with Dune, then it might be fine (for the first war)

    also the Alliance of Lordaeron was former when Stormwind was still around
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Horde's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    I do wonder if this reboot isnt some kind of money laundering scam and CCP prestige willy waving.

    Think about it? Legendary is owned by China and China wants to create a movie industry to rival Hollywood so you can bet there will be lots of rebates and kickbacks. Then you have investors who will prolly come from shady people who want to clean there money and want to put it in a movie they know will prolly break even and that the IRS wont bother to audit a movie that didnt do Avengers money.

    To be fair though if thats the truth i dont care as long as the movie is good at the end.

    If they want to focus on Orcs then, why not make it like Lords of War? that shit was amazing.

    As for Chris Pratt starring in the film. He was good in Guardians of the Galaxy, but Jurassic World was pure garbage. They literally butchered that franchise...
    I would have reserved him a more comedic role in movies, not a serious one.

    Now, as for the director, i have no idea why they chose Duncan Jones out of all the directors in the world. He was literally unknown, with only two movies on his record, which were not that well known or that good either.
    As for Peter Jackson, his Hobbit trilogy was bad as it was catered for little kids. Just like the Warcraft movie.

    You want to make a good movie that isn't just a summer blockbuster? hire a british cast. Americanized films, especially fantasy ones, are most often extremely child-friendly and, therefore, lack the quality of mature-oriented films.

    Dude warcraft is the epitome of child-friendly fantasy. There is no way they can do anything interesting with it.

    No way they would be working with Legendary again.

    that would be a gigantic waste of time money and resources. oh wait is that what they're actually doing? someone wake me up when they actually get to the second game story wise. if that's the case the thread title is extremely misleading. came in here expecting a tides of darkness/beyond the dark portal movie. looks like it's another orc's & humans reboot. /yawn.

    Do we really need to go through this again? The movie was horrible. I don't see how a reboot would be better.

    The original Warcraft movie was saved by China and with recent tensions between the US and China and the Mulan disaster I'd say this is not happening at all.

    I would argue the opposite. If you see my post about how i think if this happens this movie will under the surface be a money laundering scam where 'investors' dont care if it actually makes money they just care that there ill gotten shady money can be washed through Chinese ticket sales. They dont give a fuck if it does anything in the US aslong as it does well in China cause the Chinese government sure as shit wont audit it to make sure there is no shenanigans going on.

    Why else do this money wise?

    If that movie is ever made its release will be in 3 years at best.

    Of course they can. Just look at their Cinematic trailers or Animated shorts (though, i am afraid they've gone even more childish after censoring Garrosh's infamous line "Watch your clever mouth, bitch").

    We all want a fully CGI movie like their cinematic trailers. The costumes and sets in the Warcraft movie were horrendous - looking like their Blizzcon costume contests. Not to mention the poor acting, script and general storytelling.

    If they want to take inspiration from a rather good CGI movie, they should take a look at Beowulf. That movie was fully CGI, and was not half bad either. It didn't shy away from delving into mature topics like sexual content or dark ones like slaughter.

    Moreover, a fully CGI would allow them to use their incredible voice actors. The characters in the Warcraft movie (mostly the humans) didn't look or sound like the ones we learned to know and love from the games.

    Look at Pirates of the Caribbean, for example, it started out as a Disney ride and was eventually made into a pretty good trilogy (don't let me get started on the god awful fourth and fifth ones).

    Lord of the Rings trilogy won 17 academy awards and 10 saturn awards. But, then came out the shallow Hobbit trilogy.

    Harry Potter movies were a fantastic franchise, until the arrival of Fantastic Beasts.

    All of them are what you would consider child-friendly fantasy worlds. But, they fully expressed their potential and, therefore, were pretty good.

    You know what was their problem? they dumbed down the sequels for kids audience.
