Warcraft live-action movie director Duncan Jones announced his WOW character lineup today at BlizzCon. So find out who is playing who, and which classic character you should be looking for in the film.


Jones joined Bill Westenhofer (Visual Effects Supervisor), Chris Metzen (Co-Producer) and Rob Kazinsky (whom you may remember from True Blood and Pacific Rim, and who was playing Orgrim on stage for the Warcraft panel). And at that panel, they revealed the entire character lineup. So here is the official run-down of who will be playing who in Warcraft, the movie:


Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel)

The lead protagonist for the Alliance, Lothar is a war hero who has sacrificed everything to keep the people of Azeroth safe.

King Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper)

King Llane is the leader of the Alliance city of Stormwind and a beacon of hope to its people in a time of darkness.

Medivh (Ben Foster)

Known as 'the Guardian,' Medivh is a mysterious and reclusive protector who wields formidable power.

Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer)

Khadgar is a gifted young mage, embarking on a daring search for the truth.

Lady Taria (Ruth Negga)

Taria is the royal Queen of Stormwind, King Llane's great love and most trusted counsel.

Garona (Paula Patton)

Caught between the Alliance and the Horde, Garona is a strong-willed survivor who must decide where her true loyalty lies.


Durotan (Toby Kebbel)

The lead protagonist for the Horde, Durotan is the noble Chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan, battling to save his people and his family from extinction.

Orgrim (Rob Kazinsky)

Orgrim is Durotan's right hand and a brave warrior destined to wield the Doomhammer: a weapon of orc legend.

Blackhand (Clancy Brown)

Known as 'The Destroyer', Blackhand is one of orc-kind's most fearsome and titanic warchiefs.

Gul'Dan (Daniel Wu)

Gul'dan is a supreme orc ruler, fueled by a dark magic that even he cannot control.

Finally, in a very cool moment, the production team brought out giant boom mics and asked the audience if they would lend a hand and record battle cries for the Horde and the Alliance. Neat.
