When they first announced a WoW movie, I had hoped for a CGI version based on the great game cinematics Blizzard have produced over the years. So, I was disappointed when it became clear that the movie would be live action.

WoW Movie: which would you prefer - CGI or Live Action?

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

9/24/13 1:00:05 PM#2

Blizzard has already established how well they can do CGI, especially in the fully rendered cutscenes/openings for Warcraft 3 and onward.

If/when this movie is made, they should just leave it all to Blizzard.  Let them make the story, select the actors, direct, etc.  They are more than capable of making a movie, more so than many movie studios, so why deny them it?

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

Just look at WoW trailers and you have your answer... its an entire art style by themselves... 

 

On top of that the look of the world is to cartoonish to capture in a real live Action movie, it will just not be WoW, and so might end up as a disapointment.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

Has to be CGI if it really has to be made, real action has a real Street Fighter smell about it :)

Now playing GW2, AOW 3

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

9/26/13 10:22:07 AM#5

Can't answer since what I prefer isn't in the options.

A mix of both, like in "Avatar".

My computer is better than yours.

A Trailer and a movie are two different things, while they do a good job making trailers they have 0 experience to my knowledge making  movies. I think they should be in charge of everything but should also take some tips from Hollywood on certain aspects in order to make it a smooth transition.

Due to the style of WoW my vote would have been for a animated movie.  I have a hard time seeing the orcs being put in with their iconic warcraft look and not clash with the rest of the style.

 

But who knows, they might pull it off. After all CGI effects have come a fair bit.

It will likely be both, although I think when you mention CGI you are imagining something like Pixar, Clone Wars, or such.

 

If it's like the LOTR trilogy then it will have both live actors and heavily enhanced computer graphics and be awesome, dependent on the story of course!

 

If it's like the Hobbit then it will be a stinker.  Given the direction WoW has taken over the past few years, I'm not anticipating anything special .. the last good story Blizzard used was that of Arthas, years ago.

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the priviledge to do so as well.

 Considering even the big live action movies are mostly CGI except for the actors (and even then), I'd like to see a 'live' version of a tauren or dranei but I know what you meant. Beowulf type movie for CGI etc. etc.

I voted live action but that is really not my choice. The cgi cinematic scene for MOP with the ogre, human, and pandaria fighting is one of the most awesome things I have seen. I have the collector's edition which has a blue-ray version of that scene. I watch it on my 60 inch samasung over and over again. I want more! As an artist myself I marvel at this wonderful work of art.

However, I think a WOW movie would need to be a hybrid like someone else mentioned, I think a movie like Avatar or Hobbit using both top cgi and live action would suit the story best. I would love it to be a complete cgi movie made by the team that made the awesome MOP cinematic but I would imagine it would take 10 years to complete after watching the behind the scenes video of how it was made. 

I recently came back to WOW after almost two years away. I am loving it more then ever. One thing I love to do is have a movie on while I am play an mmo. I have a pretty awesome media room as I call it and I can play a movie while I am on my computer. I love playing SWTOR with a Star Wars movie going, I do this also with LOTRO, and even a bit with Defiance. I would absolutely love to play WOW with a WOW movie playing!

To be honest, there is so much CGI in live animation these days there's virtually no difference.  I say both.

Blizz without a doubt does some of the best cinematic cut-scenes in the industry. And before LOTR, I would have said CGI without a second thought. But if they take the path that Peter Jackson did I will be very happy.

Live action fighting is never as good as CGI for this type of thing. Look at the Avengers movie. It used both but the fighting the hulk did was much more spectacular than what captain America did. For a movie like WoW I'd want to see more hulk and less captain America.

There's a saying about evolution and why we have two eyes and two ears but only one mouth. Clearly it didn't see the internet coming or it never would have given us ten fingers to type with.

I'm thinking this as well.  If they could get the same Maya set up that James Cameron used, which in Blizzard's case wouldn't make dent in their financial wallet most likely, then they could do something incredible with MoCap.
