If you’re as pumped up as I am for Duncan Jones’ ‘Warcraft‘ which is due to drop this June,you’ll be thrilled that we’re getting a better look at some of the film’s lead characters. In the posters we’ll be getting a look at Blackhand, Lady Taria, Ogrim, Llane, Garona, Lothar, Durotan, and Gul’Dan. Many of these are our first looks at the characters or at least our first good looks. Not only that but a small description of each lends us an idea as to who they are for those who haven’t played the original ‘Warcraft’ games in years.
Let’s take a look!
BLACKHAND – THE DESTROYER
Driven by cruel ambition and fueled by rage, Blackhand the Destroyer is war incarnate.
LADY TARIA – THE QUEEN
In an age of beasts and battlegrounds, Lady Taria’s grace and diplomacy provide a beacon of hope to the people.
ORGRIM – THE DEFIANT
Wielder of the mighty Doomhammer, Orgrim is fiercely loyal to his Chieftain Durotan.
LLANE – THE KING
Leading from the front-lines, the noble King Llane is a symbol of strength in a time of war.
GARONA – THE SURVIVOR
Garona is the unbroken survivor who will join Lothar and Durotan to save a world they can all call home.
LOTHAR – THE WARRIOR
Forged in the fire of battle, the brave knight Lothar has sacrificed everything to become defender of Azeroth.
DUROTAN – THE REBEL
Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, Durotan will do whatever it takes to find a home for his people
GUL’DAN – THE INVADER
A tyrannical orc shaman wielding dark powers, Gul’dan sees all life as fuel for the Horde.
So most if not all of these characters have popped up in the trailers so far but it may have been hard to put a face to a name on some of them until now. We’re only a few months away from Azeroth being invaded by Orcs as they search for a new home and I suspect we’ll be seeing a lot more as the theatrical release approaches.
Are you looking forward to ‘Warcraft’? Which character has you most interested for the film? Share your thoughts below!
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home. So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.
‘Warcraft’ will be warring into theaters on June 10th, 2016!
