Warcraft 2 Movie is finally here? After months of build up, it finally has arrived and we here at Warcraft Reviews are ready to discuss it with our readers. Since this is such a big production with multiple actors, plot lines and other details to take care of, we won’t be able to give our usual review. We’ll just give some quick and general information on the Warcraft 2 itself, instead of diving into the more detailed aspects.
As you may have guessed, Warcraft 2: Hordiss is based on the successful World of Warcraft game series. In this new movie, however, the franchise will take the story in a different direction, focusing more on the game’s lore and the characters that will be seen in future games. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the movie is set to premiere during the summer of 2021. Based on the successful World of Warcraft movie series, Hordiss looks to continue the success of its predecessors while weaving a new tale in the process. So far, we’ve heard that the new movie will feature an all-star cast headed by Alexander Skarsgard and Djimon Hansu as Lorgar, Highlord Goren, and Magni, respectively.
What We Know More About It ?
With the new movie, gamers should expect more of the same, but at least one major change: there isn’t any familiar faces in the cast, at least at this point. There is also no official release date for the movie yet, but it is scheduled to hit theaters right after the summer’s end. One thing is for sure, though, and that is that fans of the original game will want to see it regardless. It is the logical conclusion that a new game would be produced to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary, and with such a long wait between movies, it seems like more hype is on the horizon.
What exactly has changed with the game world in this new movie? For one thing, the story takes place in the contested lands of Kalimdor, where Arthas has become the main adversary of the last hero to fight against the Lich King. In previous WoW games, characters were allowed to take on any race, including the humans, elves, tauren, or orcs; the latter races now belong to the Horde, led by their new chieftain, Thrall. In addition to a new race, there are also four new classes introduced in the game: Tauren, blood elves, dwarves, and gnomes, each with their own specializations and special skills.
While some of these changes may be obvious to anyone who has played the game, others may be less so. For instance, what was the purpose of adding the Blood Elves? How did the addition of Arthas (who is actually named Illidan Stormrage) into the mix happen? And now that the Lich King has returned, what does the future hold for the game? With the release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, fans of the game can look forward to more additions to the cast, more stories told through the in-game cinematic, and more overall changes. This means that fans of the film will have even more to look forward to.
With all of these potential new features and characters, it is easy to see why World of Warcraft 2 is fast becoming the biggest movie series launched in recent history. The success of the initial film helped make way for an eventual sequel, and today, Blizzard Entertainment is hard at work creating new movies and television series in hopes of capturing the success of the first film yet again. Is this a possibility? Only time will tell, but for now, WoW gamers can look forward to more exciting additions to their favorite online role playing game.
