We haven’t seen much at all from the new Duncan Jones movie Warcraft, but at Blizzcon today the gates are opening on some of the film’s story. We’ve known most of the cast of the film, which includes Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown. Until today we weren’t certain about most of their characters beyond the fact that Foster would play Medivh. Now we know roles for all the major players, and we’ve even got early renders of a couple of them in character. Meet the Warcraft movie characters below.
These shots come from our friend Reza Lackey, who is at Blizzcon today, where Duncan Jones is presenting Warcraft to fans of Blizzard’s original game series.
The Legendary Twitter feed has been filling in details:
- Dominic Cooper is King Llane Wrynn, beacon of hope to the city of Stormwind during a time of darkness.
- Ben Foster is Medivh the “Guardian”, a mysterious, reclusive protector with formidable power.
- Robert Kazinsky is Orgrim, destined to wield the Doomhammer, heroic Orc weapon, as the right hand of Durotan.
- Paula Patton is Garona, a strong-willed survivor who must decide where true loyalty lies.
- Toby Kebbell is Durotan, Chieftain and defender of the Frostwolf Clan.
- Ben Schnitzer is Khadgar, a gifted young mage on a daring search for the truth.
- Clancy Brown is Blackhand “The Destroyer”, one of the most feared and titanic warchiefs among the Orcs.
- Ruth Negga is Lady Taria, Queen of Stormwind at King Llane’s side. His great love and most trusted counsel.
- Daniel Wu is Gul’dan, supreme Orc ruler fueled by a dark magic that even he cannot control.
- Travis Fimmel is warrior Anduin Lothar, a hero who has sacrificed everything.
Warcraft is set to be released in 2D and 3D on March 11th, 2016.
