There are eight in all, including Lothar, Blackhand, and Garona. Along with each of the posters, shared through the film's Tumblr page, Legendary offered a brief description of who each character is and what their role in the movie is. You can find these below.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Orgrim - The Defiant: Wielder of the mighty Doomhammer, Orgrim is fiercely loyal to his Chieftain Durotan.
  • 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.
  • Blackhand - The Destroyer: Driven by cruel ambition and fueled by rage, Blackhand the Destroyer is war incarnate.

The first trailer for Warcraft debuted in November at BlizzCon. It's directed by Duncan Jones, who previously made the acclaimed sci-fi movies Moon and Source Code, and stars Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbel, and Clancy Brown.

Warcraft is due out on June 10. If a survey from earlier this year is any indication, Blizzard may offer World of Warcraft and all of its expansions with a special, premium ticket to the movie.
