The highly-anticipated Warcraft Movie
is on its way for a March 2016 release. While the film is still in an early stage of development, Blizzard has revealed
all the major actors / actresses and characters we will see on the big screen.
Directed by Duncan Jones, Warcraft is closely based on the fantasy video game series and portrays the origin story of the initial encounters between the humans and the orcs, with an emphasis on both the Alliance's and the Horde's sides of the conflict. You will see such well-known characters as Durotan, Lothar and others.
Jones, together with Bill Westenhofer (Visual Effects Supervisor), Chris Metzen (Co-Producer) and Rob Kazinsky (known for his roles in the True Blood series and Pacific Rim), used BlizzCon 2014 to let us in on the official character lineup.
