About the film plot, Jones tries to present the "Warcraft" with more emphasis on heroes on both sides of the Humans and Hordes doing their best to prevent the conflict from happening, not the typical war between the humans and the Orcs. In his point of view, the battle between the two sides will be triggered by the original villains.

When asked about his favorite, the director remained tight-lipped at first.

"As for favorites, I cannot do that! I am like a parent now! They are all wonderful in their own ways," the Jones said.

However, the director finally revealed his pick among the heroes.

"...but if pushed, and ou want to know one of my favorite chararacters, Durotan is very special to me," he said.
