Transcript

It is narrated by Archmage Khadgar.

IconSmall Khadgar.gifArchmage Khadgar: On Draenor, old rivals sought to bring Azeroth to its knees; and while the Iron Tide was quelled, they were but servants of a more ancient foe that has not forgotten our defiance.
In raven form, Khadgar sits perched upon a ledge in Karazhan. He flies off, departing towards the Broken Isles.

Trivia

  • The final segment of the trailer, in which Khadgar flies into Stormwind Keep's throne room to warn Varian of the Burning Legion's return, is a callback to the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos cinematic The Warning, in which Medivh unsuccessfully tries to deliver a similar warning to King Terenas Menethil in Lordaeron's imperial chamber.
    • In Heroes of the Storm, this is referenced in one of Medivh's poke quotes: "You're telling me Khadgar flew in as a raven and transformed in front of the king to deliver a dire warning? Hah! That's my boy. I mean, was, until I turned him into an old man, that is."
  • The line "For we stand once more upon the brink of destruction" is likely a reference "We stand now, upon the brink of destruction" from the Warcraft III opening cinematic, The Prophecy.
  • The music featured in the beginning and end of the trailer is also a Warcraft III reference, specifically that of the Thrall's Vision cinematic.
