The “Warcraft” director did a tell-all in an interview about the film’s 40-minute deleted scenes. He was hopeful he could show the uncut version to the public one day.
Initially released on May 25, “Warcraft” was considered a curse adaptation from the most popular and iconic role-playing game produced by Blizzard Entertainment.
Fans are reportedly disappointed with the outcome of the film. Duncan Jones, “Warcraft” director, explained that there were several scenes deleted from the movie.
One of those sequences should have explained the character of Garona better from what was seen during the film release, GameSpot reported.
He pointed out that the said character was half-draenei and half-orc, but in the movie, she was half-human and half-orc.
“Our film is Warcraft, not World of Warcraft. What makes most of us is she is someone who is an outcast in both cultures. She tries to find a home in both,” he said.
He continued, “To be honest, it won’t take a sequel [Garona’s history]. It’s in the extended edition, and it was in the cut until we got closer to the film coming out. The answer makes sense in our reality – the reason she exists makes total sense.”
“If you watch the film again and you think about all of her reactions with the characters and what they say, you could actually probably work it out,” he stated.
Duncan Jones emphasized that with “Warcraft” as a theatrical version, the audience should be able to notice how Garona reacts and moves in the film.
He even compared this movie with his past films “Moon” and “Source Code.”
“If you know ‘Moon’ or ‘Source Code,’ there’s this very sweet, very talented guy named Chesney Hawkes who wrote this really, really bit hit in Britain called ‘I Am The One And Only.’
“I used it as an alarm clock in ‘Moon,’ and as a ringtone in ‘Source Code’ – and I actually got him to do a version as a bard in ‘Warcraft.’”
Jones also confirmed that there will be no extended cut for “Warcraft” if the theatrical version won’t go well as he expected. The whole movie’s run time was around 2 hours.
“Deadline reported that Warcraft” earned A$43.37 million on the day it was released in the international markets. The film is scheduled to show in the US this coming June 10.
