Legendary wants to give Warcraft a new chance, but it seems that it will not be a continuation of the film they released in 2016, which was so divisive.
The case of Warcraft is quite curious since it was a box office success all over the world except in the United States, which received a brutal attack by the press and fans and audience, who managed to prevent people from going en masse see it.
Generally, if we review the collections of high-budget films, we realize that of all the money they generate, half is in the United States, and the other half in the rest of the world. There are some exceptions where it is not so balanced, but it is almost always true. This means that if Warcraft made $ 391 million internationally, it should get something similar in the United States. However, it only made $47 million. Something still the movie studio or director Duncan Jones is not explained.
This is one of the big reasons why they haven’t made the sequel. But that does not mean they leave the property idle. Since we live in an age where all recognizable stories eventually reboot at some point. So reports point to Legendary wanting to make a new version of Warcraft.
They will restart the franchise
Based on our information, the movie will erase the slate and start from scratch again. Which is not good news for fans of Duncan Jones’ version of Warcraft, who wanted a second part. They also won’t use cast members who signed multiple contracts hoping that it becomes a franchise. Details on what exactly is planned for the project are still unclear, but given that the first film spent a decade trapped in development hell before finally filming, the studio will no doubt expect things to move much faster in the future—second try.
Being such extensive mythology, instead of a live-action movie, they should make an animated series with 3D characters, like the spectacular videos presented with each update of the World of Warcraft game.
