    So the jailer is the one who is jailed? I don't get it.

    The Jailer doesn't appear to be trying very hard to escape his chains... almost seems like he is pleased to be there..

    It's a launch cinematic. Its "mission" is to look cool, not summarize the game's plot.

    Only one thing is certain; The Jailer is the final boss, and in his corruption, must be killed, but like "there must always be... a Lich King", I'm sure "there must always be a Jailer" to maintain the natural order. The million dollar question now is, who will Blizzard choose as the new Jailer? Bolvar, Sylvanas, or the dark horse, Arthas? From a narrative point, Arthas would be cool, as he'd be the new Jailer of the Dead while Illidan is now Sargeras' jailer. Keeps the door open to re-visit two very popular characters any time they wish to dabble in the stories of Fel and Death. Bolvar should return to being Lich King, and Sylvanas should be thrown into The Maw to be tortured for all eternity. I just wrote the most satisfying ending to Shadowlands possibly imaginable.

    YOU'RE WELCOME.

    well that's by far the most bland and boring cinematic to this date. I was like "meh" all the way through.

    This seriously just looks like WC3 or something but "OooOooooOoO it's in the ShadOooOooOowlaaaaAaaAaads!"

    What even makes this place interesting or different?

    Jailor looks like an orc, could be Ner'zhul?

    It's okay. I think previous launch trailers were better, but this one is fine.

    It's a trailer showing characters that you will soon know and have a reason to care about.

    What exactly is there not to get?

    "Evil imprisoned in realm X, is strong enough to rule realm X, eventually gets powerful enough to attempt to leave realm X" is a basic fantasy trope.

    Well, I had hoped we'd learn something more about the Jailer, you know - the big villain of the expansion - before the expansion launches. They decided otherwise, so he'll remain a failed villain in my book, no matter how they will make it up during the expansion.

    Thats the point as we see in Beta the Jailer is out there moving as he pleases. Its when things were fine(course he could of been plotting still) So basically he's still stuck in the cinematic but by the time SL is starting, he's not chained or restricted.

    If that was the goal of this cinematic then it was an utter failure.
    A doctor would advise you to lower your salt intake. Also, you don't speak for the whole playerbase. Chill a bit, will you?

    I dunno... it felt pretty boring to me. Also, the Jailer looks kinda dumb, imo.
