* The America-based Russian monkeys behind the animated cutscenes of VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames and ''{{IM Meen}}'', Animation Magic, were some time later contracted to do the animation for the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' spin-off ''Warcraft Adventures''. Said game was later cancelled due to the popularity decline of {{adventure game}}s [[PopularityPolynomial at the time]] but still, they hired the staff responsible for some extremely laughable scenes, even if what few screenshots from the game that have been seen look a lot better than the studio's previous claims to fame.
* The voice of the Tinker hero of ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'' [[http://www.twitch.tv/blizzheroes/c/3599133 was done by a Blizzard employee, Kaeo Milker]].
* DevelopmentHell: The upcoming movie. Talk of an adaptation started in 2006, with the current release being a decade later. The plot flip-flopped between being about the First War to being set just prior to WorldOfWarcraft (the reason cited being that the popularity of the franchise was from the MMO, not the RTS'.). Sam Raimi was originally supposed to direct but the project was put off so that Raimi could focus on other films. He eventually left, citing mismanagement on Blizzard's part who had vetoed most of his pre-production work. It was not until 2013 that the movie was finally SavedFromDevelopmentHell.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Uther the Lightbringer is [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} Deckard Cain]] and [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Tassadar]]! Maiev Shadowsong is Meryl from Franchise/MetalGear! And many, many more!
** Illidan is [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Gaara]] (in a cutscene, at least; his VA in the game proer is Matthew Yang King, btw) and The Lich King is [[SoulSeries Astaroth]]!
** In the abandoned ''Warcraft Adventures'', Creator/ClancyBrown would have been Thrall and PeterCullen would have been Orgrim Doomhammer.
*** Cullen also narrated some [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTSxUPJtIjQ early]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkSr7D71Bgc trailers]] for VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft. Yes, [[{{Transformers}} Optimus Prime]] is telling you to play [=WoW=].
** The Dryad is Charsi, and the Medic from ''{{Starcraft}}''.
** Kel'Thuzad is voiced by [[{{Transformers}} Tracks and Cosmos]] (Creator/MichaelMcConnohie).
** The Prophet [[spoiler:Medivh]] and the Druid of the Talon are voiced by [[Creator/MichaelBell Raziel]] from ''LegacyOfKain''.
*** Who also happens to voice Prowl, Sideswipe, Scrapper, and other Transformers.
** In the French version, Rexxar and Lord Garithos are the GreyKnights (and the narrator) from DawnOfWar.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Burning Legion was originally intended in Warcraft 3 to be a playable faction. Remnants of this can be found in the map editor.
** The original game was originally intended as a ''WarhammerFantasy'' adaption, but GamesWorkshops cancelled the contract with Blizzard at a point where the game was far enough in production that Blizzard decided to change the name and release it anyways.
** The original version of the Scourge, as envisioned, would use corpses as resources instead of gold. You'd kill creeps instead of mining. This was too hard to balance though.
