World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Cinematic Trailer

The cinematic for the Mists of Pandaria expansion came out last night. As usual the effects were quite nice, though I think it feels a lot below the intensity of other trailers including Cataclysm. Most of the trailer is of the two major opposing races – Humans and Orcs, having a one on one battle. The human gets most of the good hits in, until they are interrupted by a very fast Panda”rian”. The first 20 or so seconds of the appearance of the Pandarian screamed “Kung-fu Panda” to me, and the back story to the cinematic didn’t really seem to make much sense (though it may be contextualised in the Pandarian starter zone quests). They say they are fighting for their people, and in this clip they are fighting against both the Horde and the Alliance, yet they join both? Seems rather strange.

Anyway, I know this sounds very negative, but I am really looking forward to this expansion, and my very own pot-bellied panda. I just hope I’ll have time to actually play!
