'Warcraft' Movie Cast Announced at BlizzCon
Yesterday at BlizzCon director Duncan Jones officially announced the cast of the upcoming Warcraft movie, along with brief character descriptions. I have only the vaguest grasp of World of Warcraft but I know enough to know that some of you are going to be heavily invested in the Alliance/Horde split. There are more announced characters for The Alliance, which might tell us a little bit about the plot. There’s a full rundown over at io9 but the highlights are:
- Travis Fimmel as Anduin Lothar, the lead protagonist for the Alliance.
- Dominic Cooper as King Llan Wrynn of the Alliance
- Ben Foster as Medivh a “mysterious and reclusive protector” of the Alliance
- Paula Patton as Garona, a conflicted but strong survivor caught between the Alliance and the Horde
- Toby Kebbel as Durotan, the lead protagonist for the Horde and chieftan of the Frostwolf Clan
- Clancy Brown as Blackhand, a “fearsome and titanic warchief”
- Rob Kazinsky as Orgrim, a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer
There’s a few more listed over at io9, along with the news that the BlizzCon attendees got to record the battle cries for the Alliance and the Horde.
