SDCC 2009: Warcraft Movie – Gamespy Interviews Chris Metzen
Gamespy cornered Chris Metzen to ask a few questions about the Warcraft Movie now that Sam Raimi is known worldwide to be the official director of the film. The answers are very interesting. I really enjoy listening to Chris Metzen—hey buddy! —love his worlds. Can’t wait to meet him again, and do another lore interview. It feels like just a few days since our last interview. (laughs, wink, wink, notch, notch)
|GameSpy: What most excites you about co-producing the movie?
Chris Metzen: The thing that would excite me most is just that it translates boldly. That it feels like a fan experience, and that a couple years from now, you sit down in a theater and you’re like, “They did it. They got it. That feels genuine.” It may not be about your Level 12 Night Elf Hunter, specifically, but all the familiarity—the locales, the places, the characters, the storylines—it all feels contiguous and one-to-one with your expectations. That’s my great hope.
