Stars of new movie, Warcraft, have officially opened one of Madame Tussauds' most epic experiences yet Warcraft – The Madame Tussauds Experience, a new touring attraction that will remain in London until 31 August. Developed in close collaboration with Legendary Pictures and WETA Workshop, the experience brings to life characters in impressive sets recreating the elegant Kingdom of Stormwind and the harsh, unrelenting landscapes of Azeroth, both of which feature prominently in Duncan Jones' new movie. In addition, fans will be able to immerse themselves in the fantastical worlds featured in the film, in a groundbreaking virtual reality experience.
The characters, loved worldwide by fans of the game, World of Warcraft, have been painstakingly created for the experience, which will travel to various Madame Tussauds attractions worldwide. Knight champion Lothar (Travis Fimmel), in full battle armour, will be joined by the towering figure of Orc warrior Durotan (Toby Kebbell). The 130kg likeness, standing over 7ft tall, based on Kebbell's motion capture performance, has been created specially by the film's five-time Academy Award®-winning concept design studio, WETA Workshop, in New Zealand, using over 90 silicone moulds to create the body and costume, and yak hair to bring to life the character's iconic locks.
