Warcraft movie DVD won’t come with a director’s cut
The Warcraft movie that we saw in theaters clocks in at just over two hours, but in an interview with The Daily Beast, director Duncan Jones said his original cut of the film was 40 minutes longer. The end result? As soon as fans walked out of the theater, they wanted to see that director’s cut. But according to Jones himself, that’s not coming with this fall’s DVD/Blu-ray release.
.@PharoahFuzzyB not a directors cut. No. Don't know about extended cut.

In better news, the home release will definitely include at least some of scenes left on the cutting room floor — and while we have no idea what’s in those scenes, the extra content in the Warcraft movie novelization might give us some clues. But it seems like we’ll be watching those scenes in stand-alone format, with only our imaginations to help us picture how they’d fit in to the full film. Even without a director’s cut giving us Jones’ full vision of how the Warcraft movie went, it would be great to see these scenes in the context of the full film in an extended cut. But now we’re back to the bad news: while there could be an extended cut, Jones isn’t aware of one.
Let’s hope fan demand encourages Universal to release the director’s cut we all want to see. In the meanwhile, you can pre-order Warcraft from Amazon in digital, DVD, Blu-ray, or 4K formats. If nothing else, you’ll get to check out those extra scenes.
