warcraft-lord-of-the-clansSomething that really caught my attention during the Gamespot interview is to hear WETA Workshop’s Mike Gonzales say the armor was [used] for the [Warcraft films] … wait, did you hear that right? … Plural? … Films?

A week after SDCC 2015, WETA Workshop shared via newsletter a video by Gamespot. Mike Gonzales said all the armor and weapons on display at SDCC were part of the Warcraft Movie scenes. The armor on display at the WETA booth was specifically used for the Royal Guard of Stormwind (view our SDCC 2015 Legendary booth photos). In this video, we get a closer look at the Warcraft Movie 1:6 scale armor replicas that WETA plans to have for sale in 2016 after the movie goes live.

Sadly, the person I assigned to go to the “SDCC 2015 – Warcraft Movie Panel” spent two hours in line before everyone was told there was no more room. My heart deflated. I have heard Duncan Jones fed and handed away lots of twinkies to late-campers who waited in line since last night. So I can understand the line was pretty huge as the panel schedule approached.

i09 had the opportunity to interview Duncan Jones at SDCC 2015 to talk about the Warcraft Movie. The movie is pretty much done. Duncan is waiting for 10 VFX shots to be added to the movie, and then all he has left to do is clench his fists, and grind his teeth while geekily waiting until June 2016 for this project to be shared with the public.

Earlier I asked Duncan Jones if recording of the SDCC 2015 Legendary Pictures was possible, or if at least the Warcraft movie teaser trailer would make it to the public some time after the event.

He responded within a few minutes around 3:20am (EDT) that Legendary could answer that for me. I contacted Legendary and surprisingly got a response within a few hours at 10am. Without quoting, recordings are strictly forbidden. I will do my best to get ahold of a transcript, so keep an eye on our social feeds for any updates on that.

Speculation-Mode is on, folks. Duncan Jones tweeted he wants to lose some weight for the Comic Con. My conspiracy-theory spider-sense is tingling. As you might remember, Duncan Jones showed off the Warcraft Movie teaser at San Diego Comic Con 2014. That teaser was exclusive to attendees, and recordings were forbidden. To this day, not a single video has appeared online for it.
