Director Duncan Jones had a Warcraft movie presentation at Blizzcon, and during the presentation he revealed the characters who all of the lead actors are playing. Up until now the identities of the characters who the actors would be playing have been kept under wraps (like our dear president’s home starting with an N).

Below you will find a list of characters who have been divided between ‘Alliance’ and ‘Horde,’ which are the two opposing armies in the franchise. As Warcraft fans, we are damn excited for this movie – we’ve been fans of the franchise since primary school and parts of high school, and we even referred to Warcraft as our girlfriends…
