The stars of Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, The Last Kingdom, Community and rather more unite for an epic spherical of World of Warcraft!
What do Uhtred son of Uhtred, the star of Stranger Things, a well-known MMA fighter and the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms all have in frequent? All of them, plus a number of extra nerdy celebrities, are all getting collectively to play World of Warcraft, a marketing campaign that kicked off beneath the hashtag #SoundTheHorn.
Why is all referred to as that? Because the entire celebrities concerned posted little movies of themselves extraordinarily WoW-looking horns, calling on their pals to hitch the horde and return to Azeroth.
So far as I can inform, the movies began with Finn Wolfhard, star of Stranger Things and the IT films:
The message wound its method via a number of different individuals, together with professional wrestler Ronda Rousey and Community star Danny Pudi, earlier than attending to Kristian Nairn, who performed Hodor on Game of Thrones.
And in fact, who would Nairn name however his “friend from work” Isaac Hempstead Wright, who performed Three-Eyed Raven, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and guy-who-rode-on-Nairn’s-back-for-five-years Bran Stark?
I feel Wright is smashing rutabagas when he will get the decision from Nairn? I’m not going to evaluate.
Anyway, Wright decides to show his horn a number of a whole bunch years into the previous and name Alexander Dreymon, who performs Uhtred son of Uhtred on Netflix’s hit present The Last Kingdom.
“Fantasy heroes UNITE!!!” Technically, The Last Kingdom is historical past, not fantasy, however potato-potatoe.
So far as I can inform, that is the place the movies cease…for now. Dreymon mentioned he desires to ask a number of of his pals, so I’d count on extra calls to journey approaching the road.
And what precisely is all of this for? Wright’s video mentions that that is an #advert (though curiously, not one of the different movies appear to). I’m betting that Activision Blizzard, the corporate behind World of Warcraft — a massively multiplayer on-line recreation that has been round since 2004, yeesh — put this collectively to drum up some hype for the sport! Maybe there’s a brand new replace coming? Or even a sequel?
In any case, Wright has concerned with these sort of public gaming stunts beneath, like when he played Apex Legends for EA.
