The writer tried and succeeded to merge our own world’s past into the film’s world which made you connect more with the emotional situation of Azeroth world. Its ending begs for a sequel. Producers of Warcraft include Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Charles Roven, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fenegain.
Warcraft also stars Daniel Wu as the orc warlock called Gul’dan who is full of the evil influence they call fel-magic; Clancy Brown as the orc world’s warchief Blackhand. the puppet of Gul’dan; Burkely Duffield as Callan Sir Lathar’ courageous son; Anna Galvin as the orc leaders’ brave wife Lady Draka; Ruth Negga as Lady Taria Wrynn, the wise and brave queen of King Llane, and the story writer Metzen made a cameo appearance as a turbaned perfume vendor.
It seems both the Azeroth and the Draenor’s have a more powerful and sinister enemy to deal with, the evil influence of the fel-magic. Many friends have already been taken over by it and many have died in the war caused by it. Can two worlds trust each other enough to fight the evil together to save the last remaining world between the two?
