Warcraft Movie Trailers Tease Garona, Durotan And Lothar
(Last Updated On: May 5, 2016)

Ahead of the big June 10th release for the upcoming Warcraft film from Duncan Jones, Legendary Pictures has decided to promote the film by showcasing small 20 second clips of the different lead characters from the film. The latest one includes Garona, the half-Orc warrior who managed to survive and join the humans.

GameZone spotted the latest trailer that was posted up over on the Legendary Pictures YouTube channel. The clip is enjoying a healthy dose of feedback with a lot of “this is awesome” comments. You can check out the teaser for Garona below.

While it’s pretty obvious she joins up with the humans in the fight, things are a little more complicated than that. We previously see her captured, which means she’s likely one of the first to make her way away from the Orc horde who invade Azeroth.

As far timelines are concerned, the movie will take place well before the events of the first Warcraft game. And keep in mind that we’re talking about Warcraft the real-time strategy game, not World of Warcraft the MMORPG.

Oh but it doesn’t end there. There’s another teaser for Durotan, the leader of the Frostwolves tribe. He looks pretty badass and is probably the most standout character out of everyone they’ve showcased so far. You can check out the teaser below.

I know some people aren’t too keen on the 3D characters mixed with the real life humans, but we’ve already seen this interspecies mixture on film with flicks like The Hobbit and Star Wars, so it’s nothing new. With that said, some of the characters look pretty solid, such as Durotan above.

As for the humans, we see characters like Lothar from the human side showcased in teasers as well. You can check out his trailer below, which features 19 seconds of sword-slashing kick-buttery.

I tend to get the feeling that he may end up being the Aragon of the movie.

My only worry about this film is that I have no idea what the general cohesion is going to be like for the plot, which involves the Orcs trying to find a new home while waging war with the humans. Hopefully Jones and crew can manage to squeeze a cohesive story out of all of those characters within the span of two hours while avoiding cramping it up or turning it into a jumbled mess like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

As mentioned at the top of the article, you can look for Warcraft to battle its way into theaters starting June 10th. You can order tickets or learn more by hitting up the official website.

    What is Ganora doing on a battlefield out on the open like that, wearing full plate armor? wierd.

    It seems to me like too many developers are trying to make video games that are like movies (lots of talking, constant cut scene interruptions, no gameplay) and that they don’t do it very well. On the flip side, movies that are based on video games seem just wrong and it’s like these movies are generally made by people who don’t know how to make movies.

    I don’t think this one will do that well because WoW came out more than a decade ago and the only time WoW has really been mentioned lately is because they shut down that server. I’m guessing that’s why Blizzard did that, to get some publicity for WoW while this probably crappy movie is about to come out.

    • There’s supposed to be that Legion expansion due later this year, but it’s barely talked about (which reinforces your point). So in a way, I too feel as if the movie has arrived at an inopportune time because WoW is no longer mainstream, most WoW players probably have zero knowledge of the original Warcraft trilogy, and many moviegoers are likely going to be comparing the film to Lord of the Rings and questioning why some of the Orcs aren’t evil.

      Wreck it Ralph is still one of the best videogame inspired movies out there, because it didn’t set out to milk a franchise by people who didn’t understand what made it great.

      Instead it was a regular movie which took inspiration from videogames and had some decent accuracy.

    This movie went wrong in so many ways.
    I would have payed for Blizzard to just make a full CGI movie like the warcraft 3’s campaign, but expanded upon.

    But not this trash with the name warcraft slapped on.
