From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon. Warcraft: Behind the Dark Portal from Insight Editions will tell the full story of the incredible creative journey that brought Blizzard Entertainment’s beloved world to the big screen.

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people, and their home.

The Art and Making of Warcraft: Behind the Dark Portal offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the creation of this eagerly awaited epic. Filled with stunning concept art and unit photography, this book also features insightful interviews with the incredible cast and crew.

Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film—starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu—is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment, and Atlas Entertainment production.

The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner, and Stuart Fenegan. Jillian Share, Brent O’Connor, Michael Morhaime, and Paul Sams serve as executive producers. Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter, and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce. Warcraft will be released by Universal Pictures.[1]


  • The elves that should be high elves are referred to as night elves several times. Neither the film nor the novelization mention the term high elf or night elf, only elf.
  • The pass where Durotan and Llane met is Deadwind Pass, but it should be closer to Blackrock Mountain.
