‘Warcraft’ Movie Will Be A Trilogy; ‘Star Wars’ Team Behind ‘Warcraft’ CGI

“Warcraft” is one of the much talked about epic fantasy flicks directed by Duncan Jones. The movie is said to have the breathtaking computer generated images popularly known as CGI. “Star Wars” technical artist will reportedly take charge of the movie’s CGIs. Perhaps, you can certainly imagine the standard of graphics in the movie. Read on to find out more interesting revelations about the “Warcraft” movie.

“Warcraft” movie is based on the highly successful MMORPG game under the same name. It depicts the story of encounters between humans and orcs set in the world of Azeroth. The film reveals the conflicts and subsequent consequences between the two.


The filming for the movie has been already done last year. However, the post production will consume more time as the team doesn’t want to compromise on CGIs.

There are special details and innovative special effects used for visuals of Azeroth that will include motion capture along with CGI. CGI of the adaptation will be taken cared of by Industrial Light & Magic, the team that created “Star Wars” CGI.

Travis Fimmel will be starring as Sir Anduin Lothar, the lead protagonist in the adaptation. Fimmel said in an interview that “Warcraft” is enormously concerned with special effects and CGI mapping. The CGIs are beautifully done by the team as mentioned by Cross Map.

According to VC Post, the critically acclaimed director is thrilled by the overwhelming response since the official teaser came out. Jones, in fact, has revealed about a possible trilogy angle to the story. The cast will include Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, and Toby Kebbell to name a few.

“Warcraft” will be released under the banner of Universal Pictures and is going to hit the theatres on June 10, 2016.
