Will Warcraft movie be filmed? We all know the answer: yes, it will be filmed and it’s 100% confirmed. The development is in progress and we will see the movie in 2016. The story of the war between Humans and Orcs will be told from the beginning. Now the main question is: will the film be continued? Will there be other parts?
The lore of Warcraft is very deep. It consists of stories from Warcraft games, World of Warcraft MMO and different books. It is impossible to tell a story of such a big world in just one film. The main task of Duncan Jones is to tell the story and make it interesting to watch. All fans of Warcraft are expecting the upcoming film to be detailed and interesting. Thus Warcraft film will most likely consist of several parts. One movie is not enough for telling Warcraft epic story.
2P.com published interview with Duncan Jones. They asked several questions about future of the movie. Here is a part of the interview where Duncan talks about future movies in the Warcraft franchise:
Duncan Jones: Peter Jackson did a magnificent job of “setting the table: for Tolkein’s universe with his first Lord of the Rings film. 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! I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will all depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film!
As you see Duncan Jones considers his first Warcraft film as introduction. He is planning to continue his job if the first film is successful. Most of the fans are 100% sure that the first film will be great. We think that Warcraft movie franchise will consist of several parts and we will see the whole story of Azeroth there.
It’s the most difficult question to answer because there is no official information. All we can do is to speculate. Let’s try to guess. The lore consists of many different stories. There are a lot of famous heroes and epic events. Many of the fams think that there will be at least 3 parts. Trilogy is a standard format for epic films.
On the other hand, Blizzard and Duncan Jones may decide to make the film series bigger. There are enough stories and heroes for that. Just imagine: the first trilogy tells about the first war and Dark portal, story of Arthas can be filmed like independent series and so on.
Don’t forget that it is business and Blizzard expects to get money out of this venture. If the first Warcraft movie is successful they will make more films and thus will increase income. Is there a reason to make only 3 movies if there are enough stories and heroes for 6 or more? I am sure that there will be at least 5 different films in total. We all know that Blizzard makes epic things and their Warcraft franchise is their main source of income. They will not restrict themselves; they will try to get all they can from the films. If they see that their films are popular they will continue making more.
There is an example of how a good franchise with great heroes transforms into long series of films. I am talking about X-Men. I am sure you have watched at least one of 6 films dedicated to this fictional team of superheroes. Do you know that the seventh film will be released in 2016?
Warcraft has everything to become long series of interesting films. The first movie will also be released in 2016 and we hope that this film will be amazing! What do you think about the future of the film? Will it be continued? How many parts will there be? Don’t hesitate to leave your opinions in comment section below.
Release Date: June 16, 2016
