Games/Books that SHOULD be movies! #9

Warcraft III
Part I: The game opens with the Orc leader, Thrall, waking from a nightmare warning him of the return of the Burning Legion.[20] After a brief encounter with a man who is known only as "the Prophet", and, fearing that his dream was more of a vision than a nightmare, he leads his forces in an exodus from Lordaeron to the forgotten lands of Kalimdor.[21]
Meanwhile, the Paladin and prince of Lordaeron, Arthas, defends the village of Strahnbrad from demon-controlled Orcs.[22] He enchants his warhammer via slaying Searinox, the black drake, and one ofKing Deathwing's finest warlords. He then joins Archmage Jaina Proudmoore, who aids him in investigating a rapidly-spreading plague, which kills and turns human victims into the undead. Arthas kills the plague's originator, Kel'Thuzad, and then purges the infected city of Stratholme. Jaina parts ways with him, unwilling to commit genocide, or even watch him do so. The Prophet, after previously trying to convince other human leaders to flee west, begs Jaina to go to Kalimdor as well.[23] Arthas pursues the dreadlord, Mal'Ganis, who was the leader behind Kel'Thuzad, to the icy continent of Northrend, where he helps his old friend, Muradin Bronzebeard, find a powerful sword called Frostmourne. Meanwhile, Arthas begins to lose his sanity, burning his ships to prevent retreat, even when given an order to leave. Fortunately, Arthas and Muradin find Frostmourne. Muradin, however, learns that the sword is cursed.[24] Arthas disregards the warning, and offers his soul to gain the sword. By doing so, Muradin was struck down by a shard of ice when Frostmourne is released, and is presumably killed. Arthas supposedly kills Mal'Ganis, and abandons his men in the frozen north as his soul is stolen by the blade, which was later revealed to be......continue reading
Part II:

In the first campaign of the game, Illidan Stormrage has gained the allegiance of the Naga, mutated night elves, and obtained an artifact called the Eye of Sargeras from his tomb (in chapter 3 of the campaign), which grants him extraordinary power. Illidan's former warden, Maeiv Shadowsong, calls for the aid of Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind to capture Illidan. Partway through the pursuit, Tyrande is swept away by a river while helping a group of blood elves. Maeiv convinces Malfurion that she died. When they finally capture Illidan, he...continue reading

(SHIT that was a LOOOONG plot summary!)
(hey Johnny..this is me Yiota editing your post:D I had to shorten was too huge!)
Why It Should Be A Movie:

Well without a doubt many of you have heard about the legendary Warcraft series extreme success...many of you might also be fanboys-girls of the series. If not then i STRONGLY reccomend reading the plot summary, or play the games, if you are a strategy fan. (Personally as a strategy game I find Warcraft to be mediocre if not less, however its story is too captivating and enthralling to just let the game go), Now on to the point. Warcraft 3 would make an amazing movie due to the fact that it has a very well formed story, with few if at all plot holes, that keeps a person on his toes. You can never be too sure as to what will happen next and even if you do, the way it happens is just epic. I think that a Warcraft movie would rekindle the decaying and vanishing epic-fantasy movie genre and would be a great change from the epic-wannabees that combine fantasy with the "real world" and vampires that fart rainbows and crap. It is a pure fantasy title, with mages, dragons, undead, demons, elves, battles, more battles, did i mention battles?, a love story, more battles, intrigue, battles, and did i mention dragons?, what about undead dragons? 2 headed dragons? portals?. Anyway you get the picture.
HOWEVER, there have been a few differences between people who say this would be a great animation movie, and others that say that living cast is required. Personally i think that Blizzard should go on and make it an animation movie, since their cinematics (especially from World Of Warcraft) are so realistic and amazing you actually think they use real actors.(Personally i am a supporter of the animation project)

If they make an animation movie then i strongly reccomend the actors that have given their voices to the characters from the game. It would make the experience more warcrafty. If not then i will list the actors i think would suit the human roles (or at least not the monster-undead roles, since there will be costumes and animation so they will be voiced as I said above)

Arthas: Ian Somerhalder
Jaina: Scarlet Johanson
Maiev: Keira Knightley
Illidan: Ben Barnes
Kael'Thas: Steven R. McQueen
Tyrande: Jessica Alba
Malfurion: Michael Trevino
Sylvanas (LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!): Keit Beckinsale
Garithos: Bill Nighy
Muradin: John Rhys-Davies
The rest of the characters (such as Lady Vashj Kel'thuzad as well as the Dreadlords) I did not put any cast since they are monsters of some sort so they should be voiced by their actors in the original game since they will require animation, even if they dont then i still think they should be acted by their voiced actors...they are not human and when they are I dont see why they shouldnt be played by their voice actors, therefore whoever plays them will not be chosen for the looks, that is my personall opinion. Anyway, I think i got them all...any advice, additions or dissagreements please post them on the comments in an appropriate fascion. thats it.

P.S: I know you all missed me :P


  1. Great cast....You really like Keit Beckinsale....And nice post, by the way....

  2. for starters she is amazing! second of all if you see Sylvanas you will realize why mrs Beckinsale would be perfect for that role. It would be a lot similar to Celine

  3. The cast is freaking great!:D

    I didn't read the story summary, i think you have tell me about it before. More than once :p
    And i saw the word definetelly needs to be made into a movie!

  4. yiota you dont get it...there is not just...1 dragon.......

  5. i know that! but i will be happy with just one too!
