I hope they do a Warcraft series through Netflix. Maybe they are using this to test the waters per se. If done well like the Witcher series, it would be a boon for the game and Blizzard. Having said that, I'm definitely interested in this.
Diablo news on WoWHead. Whatever.
The issue with the Warcraft movie was HOW BAD they communicated it. They made it seem like it was going to follow WoW lore pretty closely, but instead it was a "Warcraft Cinematic Universe: type deal. Basically an Alternate Reality.I stand firmly behind the belief they should've used the movie to layout the "canon lore" for the First War to draw both old players in by showing us what we love and attract new audiences by explaining the foundations of the universe they've spent so many years building. Not just be like "It looks like WoW, it sounds like WoW, but it is not WoW."
Even tho I somewhat liked Warcraft movie, I KNOW it was one big mess with story. Anyone who didn't play the games was pretty much thrown in the middle of full fledged ongoing story without proper intro of characters and the world(s). They crammed too much into one movie and that was another issue too.Since I first time heard the movie was finally happening, I wished it was a TV show. You need some really bloody good writers to make just one movie out of Warcraft universe. And if they were aiming for trilogy (looked like it) then again, the first movie didn't really do a good job as Part 1 / 3. It was just a mess :(
Please make a Warcraft animated series with creative input from Nobbel. Maybe Pyromancer, too.
Dont forget the Warcraft III Refunded anime.
it is funny this is not even announced yet and this dude couldn't wait to put it on his resume. of course he is a harvard business school grad
Overwatch has an intricate lore? One of the most amusing things I've ever heard. There is barely any lore. Overwatch's "lore" is a fanfic for the most. They could use Warcraft's rich lore and make a great series finally but instead they chose OW. This shows once again that Blizzard barely cares about WoW/Warcraft's future.
I'm counting on that they succed.
I do really hope that each EP will be LONGER then 20-30 min ! :D
