Warcraft Movie Blu-ray/DVD Details and Release Date Revealed

Warcraft hit theaters in June, and it’s likely that if you haven’t seen it yet, you missed its cinema run. However, you won’t have to wait much longer to see it, as the home versions are set to release in September.

Digital HD versions of Warcraft release on September 13. If you want to wait for a physical version with a bunch of extra stuff, you’ll have to hold on until September 27 when the Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K versions release.

The Blu-ray version comes with a slew of exclusives, including a motion comic, a multi-part documentary on bringing World of Warcraft to film, a featurette on wax Warcraft figures, and the teaser which was shown at San Diego Comic-Con in 2013.

The motion comic features a story that revolves around Prince Llane, Captain Lothar, and Guardian Medivh. The documentary, on the other hand, covers everything from the cast and stunts to the visual effects and mocap.

On top of that, both the Blu-ray and DVD versions feature deleted scenes, a gag reel, an origin story, a feature on Warcraft’s fandom, and a look at the visual effects and facial capture technology.

One thing that isn’t listed in the Blu-ray/DVD features is the extended edition that was mentioned by director Duncan Jones back in May. Jones explained on Twitter that there would “be no extended cut unless the theatrical [version] does well.” Warcraft didn’t perform amazingly in North America, but it did surprisingly well in China, even outpacing Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In GameSpot’s review, critic Zorine Te said, “Warcraft is crafted for the enjoyment of its video game fans. The Warcraft universe serves as more than just tacked-on references in this fantasy film, it is the heart of its story, characters, and cinematic style. It is unfortunate that despite its faithful recreation of the game, several solid weaknesses prevent it from being a well-rounded film. Still, there are plenty of moments for Warcraft fans to geek out over.”
