What do people think of the idea of World of Warcraft being made into an animated series, possibly for Netflix? (I’d also be using most of the actors who currently voice in the game)
The only concern that I would have would be if they forced politics into there. If it was fully accurate to the lore, I would love it. Others might feel differently which is fine, but that's just my two cents.
Forced politics in there? This sounds like a trigger statement. Politics is in everything, whether it be implied, inferred, or interpreted. I suspect you are think about a particular type of politics you don't like... because the only way to avoid politics is to not exist.
@AhsokaTanoJediKnight to answer the question: a Warcraft animated series could be great or awful, but I would love to see someone try to make it. Blizzard has tons of experience with cartoon/comic-style animation, so if they worked on it, I'm sure it would be at least decent. The big problem is likely funding as most animated series probably cost at least $250K per episode to produce if you include marketing and such. I think in Japan they vastly underpay animators, so they can get the average cost down to around $150K per episode, but still... if you make lets say a 26 episode animated series we're talking like $10 million minimum. It's not cheap.
@TheButler1999 Only an idiot would force politics down our throats, so they’d never do that.
@Fandyllic They’d animate the series the same way they animated that Hearthstone short.
Yeah you're right. I guess its like seasoning y'know? Sure its everywhere, but I just dont want to be choking on it if that makes sense. Also, you're statement of politics being everywhere reminded me of Aristotle. Have you read his work? I could be thinking of a different Greek philosopher, so please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, I apologize if it came across as a trigger statement. That was the furthest from my intentions.
Blizz has recently been overly careful to suppress politics, so I think your worries are unfounded.
Besides, the politics angle does very little to answer the question.
I think a wow tv show would be huge for current and ex players. Wow is a lot like got in a way, the story is definatly an epic fantasy. The only problem is that people who dont play wow, would shun it, just like with the movie. The only people into it are players.
People who’d shun it are just idiots.
Are they doing one?
What do you think?
