On Saturday Director Duncan Jones(Source Code) presented the Warcraft movie at BlizzCon 2013, and thanks to Kotaku we know some more about the movie recently announced to release on December 18th, 2015. ( Do they know about Episode VII?)
The story of the film will center on Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original RTS games. The movie will also be focused largely in the Eastern Kingdoms of Azeroth.
When Jones originally signed on, the script was more it was very human and Alliance centric., but felt that wasn’t going to work. He wants the movie’s audience to feel for the Orc heroes as much as they do the Human ones:
“It’s about both sides. It’s going to be red and blue.”
Special effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer revealed himself to be a massive fan with a level 90 Mage. He would get up at 2 in the morning during the filming of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe to go on raids. He compared the tone of the film to Gladiator and said:
“The swords that are being built are the biggest swords a human being can wield.”
The site also said that Westenhofer spoke of the orcs as real human actors in makeup, not cgi.
Mayes Rubeo, costume designer for Apocalypto, Avatar, John Carter and World War Z, will be doing the costumes.
Four pieces of concept art were also revealed and included Dalaran the city of magic, floating in the sky (above), Draenor home of the Orcs, Ironforge city of Dwarves, and Stormwind seat of the Alliance.
