The World of Warcraft Movie has been in
the works for, quite literally, years. Now, finally, it seems we are
finally pushing forward with filming set for sometime in the near
future and the release date just a little over two years away. So of
course we were looking forward to sitting down for the Warcraft Movie
Presentation panel and learning all the we could.

Headed up by movie director Duncan
Jones, we fully expected some sort of big reveals. Especially
considering the reveals that happened at Comic Con. I mean, fans at
BlizzCon deserve something special too right? To say the least, we
weren't disappointed with two reveals happening during the panel.

One of the items revealed at the
BlizzCon Panel was four pieces of concept art for the movie. Sure,
these aren't actual scenes for the movie, but these items are the
starting point for just that. To say the least, these look pretty
fantastic and really bring already beautiful places of World of
Warcraft to a whole new level. See them for yourself:

World of Warcraft Movie Character

As you might have guessed, Duncan Jones
and the other panelists were pretty tight-lipped about most things
concerning the movie. With filming not even started yet, they just aren't
ready to let many details out to the public. However, after
some gentle prodding, Jones did reveal two of the main characters of
the Warcraft Movie as well as some other small, but important,

The Warcraft Movie will be an origin
story of the first contact between Orcs and Humans. As if that wasn't
exciting enough, the two main characters that were revealed as
definite parts of the movie were none other than Durotan, father to
Thrall, and Sir Anduin Lothar, the Lion of Azeroth, and the last true
descendent of the ancient Arathi bloodline.While not much more was
said, perhaps by going back to the lore, we may be able get an idea
of what other characters will be joining Durotan and Lothar, as well
as some locations. So get to brushing up on your lore and let your
imagination run wild!

While the Warcraft Movie Panel only
gave up two reveals, they were pretty exciting ones. What do you
think about the movie reveals? Does the concept art do the Warcraft
universe justice? What other characters or locations do you want to
see in the movie? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section
