Isn't Capitan Moustache already Tarzan's dad, Lord John Clayton Greystroke?

We can probably count Aramar as the next generation of heroes like Li-li, Moira's son when he grows up, Rhonin's kids, etc.

He and Li-li could have an exploration rivalry.

Don't forget the Thrallspawn and the orphans.

I don't anticipate any undead in this and I don't think we're going to see any demons of a higher caliber than imps.

Honestly I don't see how they could go anywhere north of the Thandol Span and keep the "8-12" target age range. It gets too grimdark.

If I had to guess I would say we get some Stormwind details, he goes on the ship, ends up marooned on Pandaria, heads to Kalimdor, goes to Northern Kalimdor and does Night Elf stuff, goes to Ratchet, sees token non-evil Orcs, gets a ship to Khaz Modan. If we see any undead they are going to be the goofy kind and not the sinister kind.

No Lordaeron or Northrend, too grimdark scary for the tone that they're going for.

He'll be saved by a wandering forsaken ostensibly a lesson on not judging by appearance but really just to piss you off

No they are going to use an Orc, Troll, or Worgen for that

Not necessarily Northrend.

Given the seafaring angle, they could always pay the Tuskarr a visit and not have to deal with any of the walking corpses.

Yeah and I guess they can watch them fight some Vrykul or something although I don't see how you can have a story in Northrend that isn't influenced in some way by the overwhelming presence of the Scourge on the continent

Didn't Bolvar call all the undead to him and put them to sleep or something? Or is he still allowing them to wander around and still do scourge-y stuff?

Given the jungle feel to the images around 2:50-3:10 and what appears to be a gorilla he's probably in either Stranglethorn or Feralas.

I don't remember anything that says that.

Even if they're passive they're still excessively scary for a children's novel IMO

The video focused on the map of Pandaria for a moment so I'd expect the jungle is Jade Forest, if it isn't just some uninhabited island.

So I didn't pay attention, the art is from Samwise. Yup I'm getting this. Who needs kids.

All the art in the trailer looks like it's by one of Blizzard's cinematic concept artists, maybe Stephane Belin, so I'm not sure if it's very representative of the actual interior art being done by Samwise.

Definitely looks gorgeous, though. I hope it is.

You maybe don't remember, but "children's books" can get away with quite a bit by virtue of being books and not movies or video games.

Scholastic also publishes Goosebumps, not to mention the famously horrific Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which is also aimed squarely at the 8-12 age range.

I forgot there were gorillas in Jade Forest. If that's the case then he winds up north of Paw'don and southwest of Serpent's Heart because that's the only area in Jade Forest with gorillas.

But I guess they can always add other places in Jade Forest that gorillas are.

This actually raises questions as to why there gorillas can be found in all of the jungle zones but monkeys are only in stranglethorn. Well monkeys are in Lost Isles too but I wouldn't be surprised if goblins brought them there. I wonder if monkeys used to be more widespread but either a lot of them died in the Sundering or the Well of Eternity or Kaja'mite caused them to become hozen.

So its this minus going to war with evil spirits. That means it's going to be automatically good. What i do find surprising is you guys being quick to accept it goes against how i view your tendencies.

Oh yes, I remember reading stuff Scholastic published. A lot of it was creepier than WoW generally is and quite a bit of it was a great deal more mature.

Just an FYI this book was banned from a shitload of libraries for precisely that reason

Also, a lot of those other examples aren't really applicable unless they are setting out to write a horror novel specifically, which they aren't here.

I agree with Fojar's statements, although it would be hillarious if we visited Undercity in a children's book.

It has some pretty fucked up things in those books. Worse than anything in any Blizzard game!

I was a child once, and I'd never have found that picture to be especially scary.

What creeped me out was that one Goosebumps ending where the protagonist laid an egg, which was kind of suggestive that he'd been raped by the alien slime thing.

EDIT: Just looked it up, and Animorphs is listed as ages 8 to 12. For everything that happened in that series, I don't think the Undead would be too mature to showcase. Animorphs is much more mature than WoW has ever really been.
