The trailer has just been released for a new series of animated shorts for Legion!

Some of you might remember some news about a Legion event that happened over in Irvine a while back. I attended for Icy Veins and a number of developer interviews happened, but there was also the introduction of a new series that would be happening prior to Legion.

As some of you may recall, Warlords of Draenor had the Lords of War series in the run up to its release, in which we saw the story of a number of the leaders of the orc clans, as well as Maraad the Draenei. Legion will receive a similar series, in which we will see additional stories about Gul'dan, Khadgar and Illidan.

We were shown a preview of the Illidan one and I can tell you now, it was amazing. The artwork was superb and the story was perfect. You are given a new insight into the troubles that Demon Hunters faced while fighting the demons, including what exactly separates them from the demons, given that they use similar powers. 

Check out the trailer below:

i'm nervous about these. they built up the hype train big time when they did them with WOD and well..... we all know what happened there. very curious though, there was like a 2 second blip that appeared to be Guldan's backstory. Certainly from old lore we know his shenanigans but a before that story would be interesting. Really hoping they won't try to make him some misunderstood complicated character, no more redemption stories please XD

I do not like the last moment when Dalaran falls.... What will happen to the new heartstone to dalaran then.

Perhaps this is a vision of sorts? What will happen if he fails, etc.

The cinematics at least are amazing. I saw the Illidan one and it's just perfect. I really think they can follow through on the hype this time :p

      Embers of War is a new cinematic released by Blizzard to go with Battle for Azeroth. It's a combination of all cinematics previewed so far including Bwonsamdi, Jaina's return to Kul Tiras, the Horde intro to Zandalar, and the final Battle for Lordaeron cutscene.
      Lines have been drawn between the Horde and Alliance, loyalties tested, and the war between the factions has begun in earnest. The race is on to recruit new allies and gather a new powerful resource – Azerite. Will you heed the call of battle?

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."
