Fans of “World of Warcraft” are looking forward to this year’s Comic-Con event, which commences this week in San Diego, Calif., as it was announced that participants will be able to get first dibs on the film adaptation of the popular video game.
The confirmation came from Legendary Pictures, which is behind the movie’s production. Their schedule for Comic-Con 2015 was shared on Entertainment Weekly ahead of the event. The “World of Warcraft” panel will be presenting on Saturday, July 11, at the Hall H of the venue. Fans are to expect a “big public unveiling,” which many assume to be the full trailer of the movie.
Two years ago, Legendary Pictures together with Blizzard Entertainment briefly teased participants at the Comic-Con with a short clip of what was to come in the “Warcraft” movie. The sizzle reel never made its way online and was only reported by those who were on the panel, as per Comic Book Movie. This time, however, the trailer is expected to hit the Internet after the huge reveal this Saturday. It’s already making fans particularly giddy with excitement as this has been a long time coming.
The movie, simply called “Warcraft,” was first announced to be in development back in a press release in 2006. However, filming officially started only in 2014. After the filming was wrapped, Legendary Pictures announced that the movie will finally open in theaters in June 2016, according to IGN. That’s 10 years after the public learned of it.
Even though the film won’t be out until next year, there are already rumors that a sequel or possibly a trilogy is in the works.
“I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by! Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more! There is certainly plenty more to tell!” said the director to 2p when he was asked if the movie is slated to become a three-parter.-Cheap wow gold online
