Our latest feature here at Arrowstorm Entertainment, Mythica: A Quest for Heros is a film to get excited about. It’s the beginning of a whole new fantasy world. The beginning of a new series with a compelling female hero – Marek – who must assemble a team of heroic adventurers to help her rescue her little sister who has been abducted by orcs. The film is likely to deliver a highly rich world of high-fantasy, and with a series in the works, we can look forward to an epic multi-movie story arc that should quite a fun ride. If you haven’t seen the trailer, check it out here.
Here are some others to be excited about……
The Last Witch Hunter
Not many would associate action-film star Vin Diesel as a fantasy fan’s first choice, given his tendency to star in popcorn action flicks rather than venture into worlds of witches and magic. However, the actor’s posts about the project, his character and the plot suggests that this film will be a new marriage of fantasy and action that could prove to be a fresh take on two well worn genres.
It’s been a long time since we had a live action adaption of Peter Pan. The last being 2003’s Peter Pan. This year we’re being treated to a new take on the ever-young flying boy in the form of an origin story. And since Peter’s early years have never been explored in detail on film, this movie promises to renew our fascination with the boy who never grew up. And with heavy hitters such as Hugh Jackman and Amada Seyfried in the cast, it’s a good bet that it will deliver on that promise.
Based on the wildly successful video game series, this is the first cinematic excursion into the world of Azeroth, which alone is a good reason to be excited about it. Of course an even bigger reason to get excited about this film is the certainty of spectacular Alliance/Horde battle sequences. Warcraft does fantasy to near perfection in the video games, let’s hope it can beat the “video game movie adaptation curse.” Nobody wants to walk out of a movie based on one the most cherished fantasy franchises and be left wanting.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The entire Star Wars franchise is essentially an epic fantasy legend played against an expansive stage of a galaxy far, far away. And after a lackluster prequel series, a surprise acquisition by Disney and return of the original cast – the next generation of Star Wars adventures has fans breathlessly waiting for this one.
