Filled with stunning concept art, unit photography, and visual effects breakdowns, this book also features insightful interviews with the incredible cast and crew, as they share the secrets behind bringing war-torn Azeroth to life.Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film—starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu—is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment, and Atlas Entertainment production.
