Warcraft finished shooting a while ago, but with so many special effects to finish off, it won’t be in cinemas for nearly a year and a half. However Blizzard Entertainment decided that it would be a good time to start introducing us to the movie at their BlizzCon gaming convention in Anaheim, CA.
The panel included Warcraft director Duncan Jones, producers Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, as well as actor Rob Kazinsky, who was on hand to introduce his character, Orgrim, as well as letting us know the other major characters along with their allegiance.
Along with that we got pics of Orgrim and King Llane, as well as some teaser poster and images of the cast. You can take a look at those below, and here’s the info released about the characters in their two groupings – The Alliance and The Horde.
Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel): The lead protagonist for the Alliance, Lothar is a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe.
King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper): King Llane is the leader of the Alliance city of Stormwind and a beacon of hope to its people in a time of darkness.
Medivh (Ben Foster): Known as ‘the Guardian,’ Medivh is a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable power.
Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer): Khadgar is a gifted young mage, embarking on a daring search for the truth.
Lady Taria (Ruth Negga): Taria is the royal Queen of Stormwind, King Llane’s great love and most trusted counsel.
