In these interviews, she asked about some differences from the game, notably that Khadgar is not an old man at the end of the movie, and that Garona is half-human instead of half-draenei.

Daily Beast Interview
Duncan Jones was interviewed by
The Daily Beast
, talking about the movie's inevitable comparisons to
Lord of the Rings
and parallels to Europe's immigration crisis. A common theme with all of these interviews is that there is a ton of footage from the Director's Cut which didn't make it into the final version:
Jones tried to work in an insidery Easter Egg that would have tied
to his cinematic universe. “If you know
, there’s this very sweet, very talented guy named Chesney Hawks who wrote this really, really big hit in Britain called ‘I Am The One And Only,’” he teased. “I used it as an alarm clock in
, and a ring tone in
—and I actually got him to do a version as a bard in Warcraft.”
Alas! When Jones whittled down his 2 hour and 40 minute cut to the final runtime of just over two hours, “we weren’t able to keep it in the cut. But somehow, maybe, I’ll just sneak it into the Twitterverse… he did a
-medievally version of his single, and it’s just brilliant. Unfortunately I was the only one who thought it was hilarious.”
