According to UberGizmo , the Warcraft movie is slated for release on June 10 which will be directed by Duncan Jones.
Since the movie is an adaptation from one of the most famous and longest running role-playing game, some are curious on the possibility of a movie sequel. In that regard, Duncan Jones said in his interview with 2p :
“Peter Jackson did a magnificent job of “setting the table” for Tolkein’s universe with his first Lore of the Rings film. I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by!”
Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more! There is certainly plenty more to tell! …I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will all depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film!
In a report by Cross Map , he further added some information on the details of the movie, in which he said:
“From the moment I first talked to Blizzard, the plan was to start our film with the first time Orcs met Humans. First contact! 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.”
He also clarified that rather than viewing the upcoming film as a battle between the good and the evil, rather he put emphasis on the goodness of both sides, the humans and the orcs, and how these groups would be able to emerge peace when conflict arises.
“A Warcraft film should not be about a good race of humans battling an evil race of Orcs! Warcraft should be about heroes on both sides trying to avoid a conflict, when villains leave them no choice.”
Just recently, TV spot released another trailer for the WOW movie where it hinted on the use of magic and addition of new set of characters, dwarves, for instance, as stated in a Movie Pilot report.
