Artist Recreates Duncan Jones' Unreleased WARCRAFT Trailer

A few months ago at BlizzCon, Legendary Pictures unveiled the first footage of Duncan Jones fantasy-adventure film, Warcraft. None of the footage has leaked online yet.

Those that went to BlizzCon 2014 in November, they were rewarded with the first footage from Legendary Pictures' live-action Warcraft film, which is being directed by Duncan Jones ("Source Code"). When footage from a film that is as highly-anticipated as Warcraft is, often times it finds a way of leaking on to the internet. In this case, it did not. Security was said to be extremely tight at the presentation. Though, there were plenty of descriptions of the footage.

Description from
We start with an overhead fly-by view of a cgi storm wind, which looked amazing even to these Horde eyes.  Lothar in a voice over during the flyby “I’ve spent more time protecting my King than my own son.” We see Lothar sitting in a room that looks like some sort of Armory. He has on full plate armor and is holding a large sword and there is a shield on the floor next to him. Then it cuts to the throne room in storm wind (meticulously recreated from the game to the last brick) Lothar – ” Does that make me loyal(cuts back to Lothar close up) or a fool?”

Cuts to a desert rocky looking region that I am assuming is Draenor. Durotan-“I’ve led thousands of warriors into battle, but I fear being a father.” We see Durotan walking for a second then it goes and shows Durotan’s baby mama lying on the ground with a pregnant belly. Durotan-“Does that make me a leader, or a coward?”

It cuts to what looks like Durotan sinking in water with a weapon above him? Lothar-“Some see death as having some greater purpose, but when it is one of your own it is hard to grasp anything good comes from it.” While he is saying this it looks like they have found a dead orc in Azeroth and Lothar touchs the corpse and he sees black blood.

We then cut to a giant wood gate with two orc grunts pushing it open and Durotan talks again. “Our hope is destroyed, there is nothing to go back too. Is war, the only answer?”

Cuts to a battle scene in a forest region, large number of Footmen and Orcs charging each other. We then see a floating Dalaran then it looks like some high elves, I can’t tell for sure but I am guessing it is the Kirin Tor. Then I can’t really tell if it was King Lane or Lothar but he is walking with a Dwarf towards the great forge in Iron Forge. Short clip of Khadgar doing what looks like an arcane blast. There is a really cool clip of a Gryphon riding in and tearing up some orcs.

For some that isn't enough. That is where artist Yanmo Zhang comes in. He was one of the lucky few that witnessed the footage and he has used his artistic skills to illustrate what he viewed that day. 

It Opens On March 11, 2016!
