An announcement from the official Twitter has provided a release date for the Warcraft movie DVD and digital editions.
The film adaptation of World of Warcraft is scheduled to arrive on Digital HD on September 13th with DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD release shortly afterwards on September 27th. The announcement did not mention any of the features for the DVD, and appears to be a date for the theatrical release of the film and not an Extended or Director’s Cut of the movie.
Almost immediately people began to respond with calls for a Director’s Cut, and our own review commented on the story’s speed being one of the movie’s chief issues. We’re definitely joining in the chorus for an extended version of the film, as we suspect that a lot of important parts of the narrative hit the cutting room floor before Warcraft hit theaters. Despite that complaint, the movie made some huge money at release, and that’s likely only going to continue once September arrives.
