Whether you’re stopping by our booth, or just jealously reading about all the announcements, toys, and comics from afar (like most of us are), we have all the latest Blizzard-related info direct from San Diego Comic-Con
The Legendary panel at Comic-Con is Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in Hall H, and the Warcraft movie will be part of the lineup. While we can’t really talk about the panel, if you’re at Comic-Con, trust us—you’ll want to be there. Additional information on lining up for Hall H can be found in this lovely guide that our friends at Geek & Sundry have put together.
You’ll also want to stop by the Legendary and Weta booths for a glimpse at the larger-than-life King Llane and Orgrim statues, movie props, and for signings with the cast and crew of the film. Find out more at the Legendary site.
Warcraft: Skies of Azeroth
Legendary has released a new VR mobile app: Warcraft: The Skies of Azeroth, an immersive experience created in partnership with Industrial Light & Magic. They’ve also partnered with Google to distribute Google Cardboard headsets for Comic-Con attendees to use with the app.
Warcraft Graphic Novel
Setting the stage for the Warcraft movie, Legendary Comics revealed the official graphic novel prequel Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood.
This thrilling adventure of bravery, bloodshed and brotherhood is an original story conceived by Chris Metzen, written by the award-winning Paul Cornell (Doctor Who) and featuring art from Mat Broome (Batman: No Man's Land, WildC.A.T.S, Witchblade).
Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood will be released in May 2016 in the weeks before the movie hits theaters on June 10th.
