Pixar, Dreamworks and Blue Sky Studios ay? 3 Top notch 3d animated kids film studios, not to mention sony animation and others aswell.

But realistically, my own grandparents know more bout shrek/toy story than Wow/Diablows

seeing as how WoW is getting its own movie, it only strengthens the argument that such games are on their way to becoming more mainstream...i personally would have liked a diablo movie....i feel WoW will be a LoTR clone when it comes out

1 great thing about WoW is its not really supposed to be taken seriously, like orc and elves doing dance moves that belong to MC Hammer and Micheal Jackson, its like LotR but with a humor twist to it, i hope they capture that element of humor in the film.

warcraft has an interesting universe
i like starcrafts universe more and I think it would do for a better movie but warcraft is fine as long as they don't try and shove as many of the storylines in one. They should just do warcraft 3 burning legion invades and Arthas going all Death Knight to set up the possible second movie

Too bad Toy Story is better than both World of Warcraft and Diablo.

Diablo movie FTW! That would be quite epic imo.
