Legendary Pictures has announced that the World of Warcraft movie will officially arrive in theaters on June 16, 2016.

The announcement comes on the heels of the recent release of the first image of Ogrim the orc.

I can’t wait for this movie to finally arrive, and if the first image is any kind of indicator, this movie could be the greatest game changer for animated/mo-cap and game-based movie.

    Looks better than I was expecting. I thought they would go cheap and just make it look like a human in makeup, but this looks pretty good.

    Still can’t say I’m excited for the movie, but I’m certainly getting more interested.
