World of Warcraft has captivated millions of players around the globe with its rich lore, immersive gameplay, and unforgettable characters.
The World of Warcraft movie left many fans unsatisfied but yet wanting more. We have put together our ultimate fancast for a sequel with an unlimited budget and asked the A.I. image generator Midjourney what the cast might look like as the heroes and villains of Azeroth. (Midjourney nailed a few, and missed others despite us trying for a while to get it right!)
