Last year, the long-awaited Warcraft movie has been confirmed. Fans all around the world were thrilled to hear that the project everybody used to speculate on was finally a sure thing. Still, the producers haven`t offered too much details about how the Warcraft movie is going to become reality, from just a long-anticipated projection.
It seems that now every Warcraft related forum will have some of its questions answered, or, if you think of it another way, even more questions will be asked now that fans have even more details to speculate on.
The director of the movie, Duncan Jones, revealed some facts about the movie that will present a universe which changed the history of gaming in an interview with 2p.com.
Duncan Jones affirmed that, from the moment he talked to the Blizzard officials for the first time, they set out a preliminary context for the Warcraft movie: it was to be designed as a picture presenting the first contact of the Humans with the Orcs.
Jones added that the shooting is done. The actors and himself accomplished their traditional job but the movie is in the post-production phase. This means that they are working on the special CGI effects. The director said the views and effects in the movie will be overwhelming and added that ILM is responsible for the editing, the same guys who took care of the effects in the Star Wars movies.
As for the plot of the Warcraft movie, Jones stated that it won`t cover the story of the first war between Humans and Orcs. Instead, the invasion of the Burning Legion will be the subject of the picture.
“I think that for a world with so much newness to explain, this was a wise choice, especially when so many people in our audience may not know anything about Warcraft… it was important that some of our characters would be seeing the world fresh as well, and that the audience could see the situation through their eyes.”
Moreover, Humans versus Orcs would eventually lead the audience in a racial dilemma. As in our world, in the Warcraft universe it is not the race who makes you good or bad, but the dreams you`re ready to die for.
Commenting on the cast aspect, Jones said that Daniel Wu is going to play the Orcish warlock Gul`dan. He said Wu did a great job and caught the spirit of his character into his acting. After all, he had to impress hi wife, who is a great Warcraft fan.
Also, Jones stated that the producers of the movie are planning to film a trilogy. He admits that this project depends on how the first movie will be received by the audience.
