During the promotional presentation of Godzilla, Thomas Tull revealed to IGN that a video preview of the Warcraft Movie might be shown at San Diego Comic Con 2014 (SDCC). As mentioned by Duncan Jones at BlizzCon 2013, the movie is about the Alliance and the Horde. (Follow the link for the Warcraft Movie Presentation Panel transcript)
Thomas Tull: “We show up every summer at Comic-Con – we really enjoy it, and the fans seem to enjoy taking a look at things, so I wouldn’t be surprised.”
Thomas Tull refers to that in the IGN interview as focusing on two tribes. To decode that, in a nutshell, Duncan doesn’t want one of those fantasy movies like Lord of the Rings where the Humans fight monsters (mindless orcs). Duncan wants to film a movie based on the Alliance and the Horde. So we will see both sides, and get attached to one or both factions and their characters.
We will see Lothar and Durotan as heroes of their respective tribes. There is no such thing as a evil Lothar or an evil Durotan. Both tribes will do what they feel best for their people. We’ll see the point of view of both sides of the battlefield. That’s something we have rarely seen in a movie.
Last year not a single video of the mood piece came up in YouTube. Our correspondent staff member Naka (@dperschonok) will be at San Diego Comic Con. We’ll see if recording is allowed.
