    are they still planning this to be live action? I still think Blizz just needs to ramp up their animation team and do it all CGI :o

    The cinematic with Bolvar and Saurfang in Dragonblight was truly fucking epic.

    Imagine if they made it with improved CGI

    HO. LY. SHIT!

    Or imagine even better with live-action set-pieces mixed with CGI.

    I only scanned the article, but I didn't see if it was live action or CGI. Personally I think it should be CGI done by Blizzards cut scene teams. Shit would be cash. Live action would just be pure faggotry.

    This should just be all cgi and made internally at blizzard

    although it would probably take 50 years to come out if that happened

    :coold: My favorite part of WoW was all the lore around you while playing, from Warcraft - WC3:FT. I hope whoever is writing the script doesn't try to make it 'mainstream'... although I guess WoW is already as mainstream as its gets, and it's been doing pretty well :o.

    Why? It's Legendary pictures with a big budget and an accomplished director. I went to the panel a couple years ago. The initial buzz about the director was Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), but I much prefer Sam Raimi. Chris Metzen (developed Warcraft/Starcraft/Diablo lore) will be doing the story and Blizzard will have a large part in the development. They don't want this to be "another video game movie". It's important to note that Blizzard initiated the development of this movie, unlike most VG movies. They're not exactly outsourcing the franchise to a production company and saying "have at it".
