SDCC 2015 – Christie Golden writing Warcraft Movie Novel

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Blizzard Products News, Legendary Pictures, SDCC 2015, World of Warcraft Film

During the Blizzard Showcase panel held at San Diego Comic Con, Christie Golden revealed she is writing a prequel to the Warcraft Movie where we will see a lot of the things that lead to the events in the movie, new continuity. Find out more details about the Warcraft Movie Novel in our Blizzard Showcase Panel video transcript page. (link at the bottom)

Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood

In addition, Legendary Comics is working on a graphic novel titled Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood — featuring King Llane, Medivh and Lothar when they were younger adventurers. This graphic novel based on Chris Metzen’s script will be developed by writer Paul Cornell and penciled by Mat Broome.

Old school Warcraft: Orcs and Humans fans might remember a story about King Llane, Medivh and Lothar fighting trolls in Stranglethorn Vale as teens in the pages of Warcraft: The Last Guardian (by Jeff Grubb); and while not fully fleshed out in that novel, there is a mention within “Warcraft: The Last Guardian” that the Legendary Comics writer, Paul Cornell, capitalizes on to have creative flexibility in the pages of Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood:

“The early stories of the three of them had found their way even into the Violet Citadel’s archives. The three of them often wandered through the borders of the kingdom, exploring and putting down all manner of raiders and monsters.”

Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood will be on sale May 2016 for $24.99.

More details soon as I edit the Blizzard Showcase Panel video. If you haven’t read the novel, Warcraft: The Last Guardian was reprinted in WarCraft Archive.
