Warcraft Film Details, Release Date

Posted by Michael Bitton on Oct 02, 2009  | Comments

Warcraft Film Details, Release Date - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

A number of new details on the Warcraft film have surfaced over at IMDB. Two major details about the film have surfaced, one, the film's release date, which is targeted for 2011. The other, the film's name, which will be "Warcraft: The Rise of the Lich King".

All the above information still remains unofficial as there haven't been any official announcements yet, but Medievaldragon at WorldofWar.net makes a pretty good case for the film's name:

The film is approximately slated for 2011 according to IMDB. This title gives us an idea that the film will be somehow based on some of the scenes of World of Warcraft: Rise of the Lich King novel by Christie Golden, which contains heavy references to scenes from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. A film based on Arthas as a main figure is definitely attractive to the audience, either to fans or to viewers new to the fantasy storyline. The life of Arthas is one saturated of tragic things that led him to take different type of choices. Some that drove him to the brink of insanity, shredding away the last vestiges of his humanity, taking an oath to give up his soul if he was empowered to slay the enemy that destroyed his land, and if it allowed him to save his people by wielding the runesword known as Frostmourne.

Via Blue's News.

I think Medievaldragon makes a pretty good case, and as someone who isn't particularly a fan of Warcraft the story of Arthas actually sounds like it would be compelling enough to want to see. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
