This is the trailer for Grubthar's
upcoming feature-length movie, Maw
. The premise of the movie centers around a small group of orcs who are chased out of Khaz Modan
by the Alliance. With nowhere to go, the war party sets sail to the west. A similar group of Alliance soldiers gives chase to the horde. When both arrive on a distant shore, events take place which will "test their honor and seal their fates."
The basic kernel of Maw's story sounds decent, but something about the trailer didn't really click for me. I think I felt like the trailer was focused on the dragons more than the orcs. And while I would love a dragon movie, and am reminded of the White Drake
because of it, I don't think that's what Maw's going to be about. On the other hand, I could be overthinking this.
Ultimately, though, I'm a fan of story-based machinima, and I look forward to seeing what Grubthar delivers. Click here
