It takes more than pretty CGI and 2 minutes of film to make a good movie.

He didn't say it was a good movie, he said he was excited.

No one here knows if it will be good or bad.

People are just excited or pressimistic (not unusual), or semi-indiffirent.

I think we can all agree that what we've seen about the movie so far shows promise, and that Universal shifting it to a stronger position in the summer shows that people in the industry have confidence in it too.

Yes, it could still suck. Yes, it could be an amazing financial success but crater from a critical standpoint or vice-versa. Yes, it could be both a critical AND financial success and there will still be pedantic lore nerds angry that it wasn't a perfect adaptation. Some of those pedants will be here, posting their displeasure.

The bottom line is that the movie is going to come out and it'll have whatever impact it's going to have. Let's move on.

The feels will be strong with this one.

They have Grom aswell posted now. (More people mainly involved in motion capture which is great) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0803096/
I think Young Varian (I'd prefer it to be young anduin, but ehh) needs to be played by the GoT dick king.

How could it be Young Anduin? he won't be born for 20 years. Also there's already a character called Anduin in the movie. It wouldn't make sense.

Eh, it probably will, but that's just Hollywood these days, has nothing to do with Blizzard for a change.

Probably.

hey guys, who died first, onyxia or nefarian?

I ask because in bwd it seems only nefarian was "brought back" by deathwing, while onyxias merely a shambling corpse now, due to lack of speech or cognition.

and how did nefarian get rezzed? old god juice?

Onyixa was the 'tier' before Nefarian/BWL, so I just always assumed her.

indeed. because my theory was that she died longer, so was too far gone to bring back.

Was nefarian outed by her being revealed to be a dragon? Because considering daval prestor was revealed to be dwing, You`d have thought the nobles would be suspicious of other prestors. and what kind of human has a name like nefarious?

*shrug* It’s pretty unclear, unless you use the “attunement” for Nef’s fight to be canon (i.e. needing Onyxia cloaks). But Nefarian’s retention of his faculties probably points to his preservation by alchemical means, given the nature of his work and his laboratory, whereas Onyxia was just straight necromancy.

Potentially, Deathwing brought Nefarian back to life and then told him to bring Onyxia back. Nefarian took that as an opportunity to use her for an experiment instead.
