'''''Warcraft''''' is an upcoming fantasy epic based on the Warcraft series and set on the [[world]] of [[Azeroth (world)|Azeroth]]. It was first announced in 2006 as a project partnership with {{wplink|Legendary Pictures}},<ref name="blizz06pr">{{ref web|work=Web.Archive.org|url=http://www.blizzard.com/press/060509.shtml|title=BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT&reg; AND LEGENDARY PICTURES TO PRODUCE LIVE-ACTION WARCRAFT&reg; MOVIE|author=[[Blizzard Entertainment]]|date=9-May-2006|archiveurl=http://web.archive.org/web/20071125104232/http://blizzard.com/press/060509.shtml|archivedate=25-Nov-2007}}</ref> but since more than 6 years have past since the announcement and the film is still not in shooting, so it may never be filmed.

Despite [[Blizz]]ard's extremely poor PR support for a Warcraft movie, Legendary Entertainment continues to include mentions of their involvement with the Warcraft franchise in the standard boilerplate description of their company into mid 2012.<ref>{{ref web|work=The Sacramento Bee|url=http://www.sacbee.com/2012/07/11/4624051/lg-electronics-first-ever-appearance.html|title=LG Electronics' First-Ever Appearance At Comic-Con Showcases Groundbreaking 3D And HD Technology (via PR Newswire)|author=[http://www.sacbee.com/search_results/?sf_pubsys_story_byline=LG%20Electronics&link_location=top LG Electronics]|date=11-Jul-2012 9:14 am|quote2=<br/>'''About Legendary Entertainment'''<br/>Legendary Entertainment is a leading media company with film (Legendary Pictures), ...Among the wholly-owned projects that Legendary Pictures is currently developing in-house are the upcoming Seventh Son, directed by Sergei Bodrov; the Jackie Robinson biopic 42; an adaptation of the phenomenally successful interactive game universe Warcraft;...}}</ref> In late January 2013, some hope was renewed when ''Moon'' and ''Source Code'' director, Duncan Jones, was signed to direct the film.<ref name="officialBluePostDuncanJones"/> Supposedly Activision-Blizzard's CEO, Bobby Kotick, still supports the making of the film.<ref name="varietyKotickQuote">{{ref web|work=Variety.com|url=http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118057401|title='World of Warcraft' drafts new scribe <small>Legendary sparks to Charles Leavitt take on fantasy tale</small>|author=[http://www.variety.com/biography/3167 Jeff Sneider], [http://www.variety.com/biography/1380 Marc Graser]|date=2-Aug-2012 3:40pm PDT|quote=While Activision Blizzard-chief Bobby Kotick has held off on brokering film deals for his company's games, he told Variety if it's 'important to Blizzard, it's important to me.

:SO BEGINS A SPECTACULAR SAGA OF POWER AND SACRIFICE IN WHICH WAR HAS MANY FACES, AND EVERYONE FIGHTS FOR SOMETHING.
The film was originally set in the era of ''[[Warcraft: Orcs and Humans]]''. This was scrapped, however, as there were notions that it would be too similar to ''Lord of the Rings'' and that Warcraft had reached its current level of popularity through its [[MMORPG]], rather than the previous [[RTS]] games.<ref name="PCIGN">{{ref web|work=IGN (PC)|url=http://pc.ign.com/articles/810/810700p1.html|title=BlizzCon 2007: New Details of the Warcraft Movie|author=[http://people.ign.com/ShoggIGN Charles Onyett]|date=4-Aug-2007}}</ref>

As such, the movie is set one year before ''World of Warcraft'' and will primarily be told from the [[Alliance]]'s point of view, though Metzen says his heart lies with the [[Horde]]. Characters such as [[Cairne Bloodhoof]], [[Thrall]], [[Sylvanas Windrunner]], and [[Bolvar Fordragon]] are likely to make appearances. [[Arthas]] is unlikely to appear.<ref name="PCIGN"/> At BlizzCon 2007, Chris Metzen said that the main character is set to be a new hero described as a "kick-ass Human" and an "Anti-Thrall".<ref>{{ref web|work=[[Blizzplanet]]|url=http://www.blizzplanet.com/blog/comments/blizzcon_2007_videos|title=Blizzcon 2007 Videos (see Legendary Pictures Panel – Day 2 – Saturday 4th 2007)|author=[http://www.blizzplanet.com/blog/comments/author/blizzplanetadmin Medievaldragon]|date=23-Jan-2008}}</ref><ref name="youtube">[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSG2DiejFJ8 Blizzcon 07 Legendary Pictures panel]</ref> This new character in the movie is not same one as in the comic (now known to be [[Varian Wrynn]]).<ref>{{ref web|work=[[WoW Insider]]|url=http://wow.joystiq.com/2007/08/04/liveblogging-the-blizzcon-movie-panel/|title=Liveblogging the BlizzCon movie panel|author={{wowinsider|Amanda Rivera}}|date=4-Aug-2007 3:05PM}}</ref><br>

=== Known lore elements ===
  +
;Humans
  +
* [[Anduin Lothar]] should be featured throughout the film.
  +
* King [[Llane Wrynn I]] will have an early part with his consort, [[Taria Wrynn|Lady Taria]].
  +
* [[Khadgar]] appears to be involved with some parts of [[Dalaran]].
  +
* [[Medivh]] will clearly be featured with the opening of the [[Dark Portal]]
   
Metzen also stated clearly that lore would be bent for the sake of the film, Varian Wrynn might have a twin.<ref name="youtube" />
+
;Orcs
  +
* [[Durotan]] will play a major part in the storyline with his mate, [[Draka]].
  +
* [[Blackhand]] and [[Orgrim Doomhammer]] are known to be a large part.
  +
* [[Gul'dan]] has a significant part.
  +
* We know [[Garona Halforcen|Garona]] will be featured.
   
Interestingly enough, the film is described as the "first film", raising obvious possibilities as to future installments.<ref name="youtube" />
+
=== Possible elements ===
  +
Though little specific has been revealed about the content of the movie, it is reportedly set at the time of events leading into the [[First War]]. The story focuses on the war between the orcs and humans, capturing each side's way of thinking and delving into their varied and sometimes identical ideals. Sir Anduin Lothar plays a prominent role for the humans, while the orcs' main driving character is reportedly Durotan, the father of [[Thrall]].
   
Concept art of [[Teldrassil]] was released in relation to the film, hinting that at least some of the film takes place there, and perhaps by extension, in [[Darnassus]].
+
Since it is set at some point during the First War, there are some plot points that can be expected - though it remains to be seen how strongly the writers have stuck to canon:
  +
  +
*The corruption of the orcs.
  +
*Medivh and the creation of the Dark Portal.
  +
*The invasion of Azeroth by the orcs.
  +
*Durotan and Gul'dan at odds with one another. Durotan is a being of honor and stands against the corruption and invasion, while Gul'dan has accepted the promises of Sargeras and his agents unquestioningly.
  +
*The [[Frostwolf clan]] is exiled.
  +
*Blackhand betrayed by Orgrim Doomhammer who becomes the new [[Warchief]].
  +
*Medivh is killed by Sir Anduin Lothar.
  +
*Durotan is assassinated and his son, Thrall, is taken as a slave by humans
  +
*King Llane of Azeroth betrayed and assassinated by Garona Halforcen.
  +
*The destruction of [[Stormwind Keep]] and various human settlements.
  +
*Sir Anduin Lothar leading the exodus of the human survivors.
  +
  +
There are a number of characters that may make an appearance in the movie since they appeared at some point during this time period. For the human side of things we might see [[Adamant Wrynn III]] and his wife [[Varia]] (briefly), and perhaps even [[Aedelas Blackmoore]], depending on if the entirety of the First War is played out.
  +
  +
For the orcs, any of the warlords featured in {{warlords-inline}} Warlords of Draenor are possible, but how large a part those beyond the ones mentioned above is still a mystery. Some have said they saw [[Ner'zhul]] in the trailer.

A very short visual teaser for the film was introduced by current director, Duncan Jones, at San Diego [[Comic-Con]].<ref name="cinemaBlendComiCon2013" /> Here is a brief description of the teaser which was not released to the public:<ref>An amalgamation of various reports of the teaser.</ref>
  +
:''A view of a desolate, dry landscape full of rocky outcroppings that pans to a scruffy, armored human soldier drinking water from a leather skin. A cage with rocks in it is shown followed by a squeaking noise as a green tinged sky is shown with dark clouds and green lightning. The waterskin is tossed to the ground and the soldier draws his sword with a sound of metal ringing off metal. The human walks over to the skeleton a fallen soldier and picks up the soldier's shield. He smashes his sword on the shield, apparently testing it. Cut to the muscled green arm (likely of an orc) of a creature heading toward the soldier. They circle each other with flashes of green skin and some armor as they charge each other. An extreme closeup of the orc as it raises its hammer and brings it down as the human raises his shield. Cut to black. A Warcraft logo. And then the [[Blizzard Entertainment]] logo.''

Warcraft: The Beginning,[1][16] or just "Warcraft", is a movie directed by Duncan Jones, produced by Legendary Pictures, and distributed by Universal Pictures. It began filming at the beginning of 2014 and has a release date of June 10, 2016.

Synopsis Edit

Official synopsis Edit

THE PEACEFUL REALM OF AZEROTH STANDS ON THE BRINK OF WAR AS ITS CIVILIZATION FACES A FEARSOME RACE OF INVADERS: ORC WARRIORS FLEEING THEIR DYING HOME TO COLONIZE ANOTHER. AS A PORTAL OPENS TO CONNECT THE TWO WORLDS, ONE ARMY FACES DESTRUCTION AND THE OTHER FACES EXTINCTION. FROM OPPOSING SIDES, TWO HEROES ARE SET ON A COLLISION COURSE THAT WILL DECIDE THE FATE OF THEIR FAMILY, THEIR PEOPLE AND THEIR HOME.
SO BEGINS A SPECTACULAR SAGA OF POWER AND SACRIFICE IN WHICH WAR HAS MANY FACES, AND EVERYONE FIGHTS FOR SOMETHING.

Known lore elements Edit

Humans
Orcs

Possible elements Edit

Though little specific has been revealed about the content of the movie, it is reportedly set at the time of events leading into the First War. The story focuses on the war between the orcs and humans, capturing each side's way of thinking and delving into their varied and sometimes identical ideals. Sir Anduin Lothar plays a prominent role for the humans, while the orcs' main driving character is reportedly Durotan, the father of Thrall.

Since it is set at some point during the First War, there are some plot points that can be expected - though it remains to be seen how strongly the writers have stuck to canon:

  • The corruption of the orcs.
  • Medivh and the creation of the Dark Portal.
  • The invasion of Azeroth by the orcs.
  • Durotan and Gul'dan at odds with one another. Durotan is a being of honor and stands against the corruption and invasion, while Gul'dan has accepted the promises of Sargeras and his agents unquestioningly.
  • The Frostwolf clan is exiled.
  • Blackhand betrayed by Orgrim Doomhammer who becomes the new Warchief.
  • Medivh is killed by Sir Anduin Lothar.
  • Durotan is assassinated and his son, Thrall, is taken as a slave by humans
  • King Llane of Azeroth betrayed and assassinated by Garona Halforcen.
  • The destruction of Stormwind Keep and various human settlements.
  • Sir Anduin Lothar leading the exodus of the human survivors.

There are a number of characters that may make an appearance in the movie since they appeared at some point during this time period. For the human side of things we might see Adamant Wrynn III and his wife Varia (briefly), and perhaps even Aedelas Blackmoore, depending on if the entirety of the First War is played out.

For the orcs, any of the warlords featured in 0600Warlords-Logo-Small Warlords of Draenor are possible, but how large a part those beyond the ones mentioned above is still a mystery. Some have said they saw Ner'zhul in the trailer.

Development history Edit

2006 - 2008 Edit

In a May 9, 2006 press release, Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures (makers of Batman Begins and 300) announced that they will develop a live-action film set in the Warcraft universe.[35] Legendary Pictures has acquired the movie rights for the game universe, and both companies are now focused on translating the Warcraft experience to the big screen. Uwe Boll attempted to apply for the job of director, from which Blizzard CEO Paul Sams replied "We will not sell the movie rights, not to you…especially not to you."[36] At BlizzCon 2008, according to Mike Morhaime, a script was being written.[37] Chris Metzen mentioned that the film will be action-packed and violent, stating "We're definitely not going to make a G or a PG version of this. It's not PillowfightCraft."[38]

2009 - 2011 Edit

The live-action film was set for release in 2009,[38] but was later rescheduled to 2011.[39] On July 22, 2009, Blizzard Entertainment announced that Sam Raimi would become the Warcraft movie director, but in July 2012 he told Crave Online that he would not direct due to committing to the movie Oz: The Great and Powerful.[40]

In 2010 it was announced that Filipina cosplay goddess Alodia Gosengfiao would likely star in the movie,[41][42] but this was never confirmed by any official sources.

2012 Edit

As of early 2012, the movie has still not been announced to be in production, so the chances of it being made are getting lower by the year. At Comic Con 2011, Chris Metzen said the movie was not dead, but gave few useful details saying it was still in the "treatment stage".[43] In mid-March 2012, Nethaera said the movie is "still on the radar" with no other update.[44]

According to IMDB, the manuscript writer will be Chris Metzen. (Jesse Wigutow was mentioned, but has been removed).[45] IMDB information on pre-release movies should be taken as suspect, though. IMDB generally only removes false information if someone reports it.

2013 Edit

Not much happened through late 2012, but in late January 2013, Legendary Pictures announced that director Duncan Jones had been attached to the production,[3] sparking some hope the filming might start. No specific development news has come out so far in Spring 2013, but lots of indirect evidence of film production has cropped up. However, previous Director, Sam Raimi, did explain why he left the project in 2013. He revealed that a lot of pre-production work was done by him and Robert Rodat (script writer), but Blizzard effectively vetoed their work and he largely blamed it on their mismanagement.[46]

The film now appears to be real with an official announcement and short teaser at Comic-Con 2013.[47] The film is supposed to begin principal photography some time in early 2014.[48]

Comic-Con teaser Edit

A very short visual teaser for the film was introduced by current director, Duncan Jones, at San Diego Comic-Con.[47] Here is a brief description of the teaser which was not released to the public:[49]

A view of a desolate, dry landscape full of rocky outcroppings that pans to a scruffy, armored human soldier drinking water from a leather skin. A cage with rocks in it is shown followed by a squeaking noise as a green tinged sky is shown with dark clouds and green lightning. The waterskin is tossed to the ground and the soldier draws his sword with a sound of metal ringing off metal. The human walks over to the skeleton a fallen soldier and picks up the soldier's shield. He smashes his sword on the shield, apparently testing it. Cut to the muscled green arm (likely of an orc) of a creature heading toward the soldier. They circle each other with flashes of green skin and some armor as they charge each other. An extreme closeup of the orc as it raises its hammer and brings it down as the human raises his shield. Cut to black. A Warcraft logo. And then the Blizzard Entertainment logo.

Officially announced to release in late 2015 Edit

It has been announced to be released on December 18, 2015.[6]

Official release pushed to spring 2016 Edit

Apparently the next installment of the Star Wars franchise was scheduled for late 2015, so it apparently prompted the studio to move the Warcraft film release to March 16, 2016.[15]

Official release delayed now to summer 2016 Edit

The reasons were not specifically given (perhaps to take advantage of traditional action movie summer season), but the studios delayed the release again to June 10, 2016.[50][51]

Significant casting lined up Edit

By early December 2013, several cast members have been confirmed or mostly confirmed. Among them: Travis Fimmel ('Vikings'), Paula Patton ('Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol'), Ben Foster ('3:10 to Yuma'), Toby Kebbell ('The Counselor'), and Rob Kazinsky ('Pacific Rim'). Negotiations with Dominic Cooper ('Captain America: The Winter Soldier') are also being finalized.

Financing and distribution Edit

According to the LA Times: "...Universal, a unit of NBCUniversal, will market, co-finance and distribute Legendary films for five years beginning in 2014..."[52]

2014 Edit

Icon-edit-22x22
Note: This is a generic section stub. You can help expand it by clicking Sprite-monaco-pencil Edit to the right of the section title.
Legendary Pictures began production on the film on January 13th, 2014 in Vancouver, Canada which spanned up to 5 months as Director Duncan Jones announces Warcraft film officially wrapped on May 23, 2014.

2015 Edit

On April 23, 2015 Legendary Pictures announced release date changes for Warcraft to move from March 11th, 2016 to June 10th, 2016. Although not officially announced by the studio, the changes were most likely made to avoid the March 25, 2016 release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The official trailer was announced to be released on November 6, 2015.[53] It debuted during the opening ceremony of BlizzCon 2015.[54]

There was no general movie panel, but WoWWiki got to cover the press-only movie panel that began with a re-screening of the trailer for press only.

  • The teaser released in November 2015 actually used the old flatter, silver-metallic logo from 2014, but they appear to have updated it right away.
