"World of Warcraft" movie is inch by inch getting near.

And while fans become more and more excited with the movie adaptation to the hit RPG, director Duncan Jones has already hinted a possible trilogy even before the original film gets to hit theaters next year.

In his previous interview with 2p, Jones explained how he wanted to make sure that the first "World of Warcraft" movie  is "established" in order to gain broader audience.

He even likened his film to Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

"Peter Jackson did a magnificent job of setting the table: for Tolkein's universe with his first Lord of the Rings film," Jones teased. "I know that my job in this first film is to establish certain characters, places and culture while telling a story that a broad audience can be excited by!"

Duncan is certain that there's still a lot more to tell in "World of Warcraft" and one movie would not have done it all, thus he's hopefull that there are more films in line.

"Hopefully, if I have done my job right, people will want to know and see more! There is certainly plenty more to tell! I would love to be part of that process of expanding on the lore that makes up Warcraft, but it will all depend on what you, the audience, think of our first film!"

Meanwhile, lead star, Travis Fimmel, who will portray the character of Anduin Lothar confessed a rather surprising detail about him and the game.

Surprisingly, the "Vikings" actor who will portray the lead character, Anduin Lothar is not at all familiar with the hit RPG.

In an interview with Crave Online, the 35-year-old "Vikings" actor admitted that he has zero knowledge of the game even after he was tapped for the role.

"No, I wasn't at all," he admitted when asked if he's familiar with the game. "It's amazing how many people play the game. I saw all the visuals. The movie is so close to Warcraft. They really kept it true to the game and you get a pretty good sense of the game just from what we're doing on set."

And while he did enjoy filming, Fimmel insisted that he has no plans of learning how to play "World of Warcraft."

"No, to be honest, I haven't," he answered when asked if ever tried playing the game after filming the movie. "I've never been much of a gamer."

"World of Warcraft" movie is directed by Duncan Jones starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Robert Kazinsky, Toby Kebbell, Daniel Wu, Ruth Negga, Clancy Brown and more.

It is slated for June 10, 2016 release.
